Matthew R. Grundy, Attorney at Law

By assisting those who are unable to work and function in their daily lives, Matt can achieve his goal of helping others seek compensation through social security law.

As a seventh-generation Clay County resident and fourth-generation attorney Matt has a deep respect for the Midwestern work ethic of those he represents. He earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law in May 2001.

Matt is also a member of the Missouri and Kansas Bar Associations, the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives, and the Clay County and Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Associations.

Karen Cyzick, Director of Operations

Karen Cyzick is Grundy Disability Law’s Director of Operations. She is a great addition to the firm due to her extensive Social Security Disability background with the Social Security Administration. Here, just adjudicated Social Security disability claims from 1981 to 1994 before utilizing her knowledge and management skills in the legal community. In 1994, she approached a general practice firm with the vision to specialize in disability law and played a key role in the development, growth, and management of this firm’s activities. By developing a business model to efficiently guide clients through every step of the complex disability process, Karen has helped Grundy Disability Law become the successful business it is today.

She also has been uniquely involved in several pilot projects with the Social Security Administration. This includes the electronic file development testing and the launch of the national teleconferencing project for video hearings.

Karen graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh in 1979.

In 2009, she was also invited to join a group of industry leaders in the disability arena focused on brainstorming and sharing best practices in disability law firm management.

Karen is a sustaining member of the National Organization of Social Security Representatives (NOSSCR) and attends yearly conferences to stay abreast of changes in the law.

Client Testimonials

What Clients are Saying

Find out how the clients who trusted us feel about our firm.

I cannot say enough
good about Matthew Grundy and
ALL of his staff.

I contacted his office October 2020, because I had and still am, fighting breast cancer. I had numerous surgeries, still doing chemo, finished radiation and still fighting the fight. They took care of everything and that was such a blessing because I was too sick and weak to do it myself. I would absolutely recommend them and I am so grateful that a friend referred them to me. They were always polite and punctual returning my calls and emails. Don’t go it alone, let them take care of it, reserve your strength to fight for your health.”

Dear Matt

I want to take a moment to say I appreciate all you do for clients (me) throughout the SSD process. You provided me top-shelf representation, case knowledge and follow up. Thank you!”

— A.S. Leawood, KS

A friend referred
me to Matt Grundy.
He was amazing!

I felt the weight lift off my shoulders. He was caring and efficient and took over the whole process. He handled all correspondence and was my voice in my hearing. I was ecstatic when Matt got my disability approved. I wish I had started with Matt before I ever filed.”

— W.T. Kansas City

After being denied trying to file on my own
I was fortunate to have Grundy Disability Group
recommended to me.

A short survey and a visit then they took control of my case. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. Matt answered all my questions without hesitation and gave me confidence about my case. I’ve already recommended them to others and will do so gladly. Thank you Matt and his team!”

— W.S. Kansas City

I had a great experience
working with this office.

They are thorough, and get the job done with the least amount of stress on the client as possible. I would recommend them to anyone I know who needs help navigating their SSDI claim. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”

— W.W. Kansas City

Now I can pay my bills again and get caught up again that is a relief. thank you guys again so much god bless you and all your families.”

— A.D. Kansas City

Thanks again for
your help on all this.

From the first conversation I had with Susan Frank, whose advice set me on a course to lay the groundwork of a successful claim – months before I hired you. I spoke to a couple of other places before I spoke to her and there was no comparison. The difference between my initial contact with Susan VS the others was a personal connection and actual value in the phone call. It was informative, connected and extremely helpful. This built trust and made my decision to choose your organization easy. My ongoing dealings with you only confirmed my choice. Matt is extremely connected with his clients and communicates promptly and thoughtfully.”
