It spun off from Legal Services of Eastern Missouri, a similar organization, in 1997[1] to focus on Social Security law. Gateway primarily handles Social Security Disability (DIB) claims, Supplemental Security Income claims and some consumer-law cases.[2] The firm has more than 1,000 open cases at any one time.[3]

Leadership[edit]

Gateway's executive director is Michael Ferry,[4] a member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives.
