Whether you are just beginning the process or have already been denied, the decision to hire a Social Security Disability attorney is an important one. If you're thinking about hiring a disability attorney to help with your Social Security case, you should first make sure that attorney is experienced and knowledgable regarding the Social Security Disability process. Our firm is highly experienced with the disability process and will guide you through every step of the process, from beginning to end. Call today for your free consultation.
From the initial application to the hearing and beyond, disability attorneys understand how to present a case in the light most favorable to their clients. During your initial application, our firm can offer advice on your alleged date of disability, review your condition to determine whether it meets one of the listed impairments in Social Security's "blue book," determine whether you fit within the Social Security Administration’s age-based grid rules, and help you focus on the facts that will be most persuasive to Social Security. At the application and reconsideration levels, your lawyer can collect and submit relevant medical evidence, obtain an opinion from your treating physician, and draft an argument for Social Security as to why to qualify for disability benefits. At the hearing level, our firm can draft a detailed brief to the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), prepare you for the judge's questions at the hearing, and stand beside you to argue your case.
If you are denied, at the hearing level, our firm can appeal your decision to the Appeals Council and even to federal court. At these stages, we will draft sophisticated legal arguments to show that Social Security was wrong in denying your disability claim.
Generally, the rule is "the earlier, the better." Even if you are merely considering filing for disability, you should call us for a free consultation. Our firm can help you evaluate the strength of your case and assist you with your initial application. While some people choose to begin the early stages without legal representation, the process is much less stressful and much more seamless when you have a lawyer on your side.
When you hire our firm to represent you in your disability claim, the fee will be contingent upon you being awarded benefits. In other words you only pay our firm a fee if we win. For more information, call for your free consultation today.
