A Social Security Lawyer that Fights for your Disability Benefits

Social Security Lawyer

Social Security Disability

Did you know that most initial claims for social security disability are denied?  With high denial rates, an attorney can ensure your case is thoroughly prepared and presented to the Judge determining your disability.

  • Do you have a physical or mental impairment that prevents you from working at a gainful level?
  • Is your medical condition severe and expected to last longer than 1 year?
  • Is your disability on the SSA approved list of impairments, or comparable to something on the list?
  • Did you work the prescribed number of years or meet other income requirements?

Fighting for your Social Security disability benefit

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you may be eligible for disability.  The Social Security Administration is a government agency and the process to obtain social security disability benefits is large and full of red-tape and paperwork.  Navigating the process from initial application through a final result often involves a hearing, denial, reconsideration and at times appeal to Federal Court.  Obtaining disability benefits can be a process that extends over months and even years.  Having an attorney to handle your disability case will ensure that your case is fully prepared and presented to the Judge making your social security disability determination.
