Who We Are
Our lawyers actively practice only in the areas of Social Security Disability, and Supplemental Security Income claims. We are members of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR). Unlike many other law firms who only practice part-time in this area while also handling worker’s compensation and personal injury cases, we have chosen to dedicate ourselves exclusively to the practice of Social Security law. We feel this allows us to provide superior representation to our disabled clients.
We have much experience representing individuals with many different kinds of disabilities. Such cases include disability caused by degenerative disc disease, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, seizures, brain injury, COPD, asthma, kidney disease, learning disorders, heart disease, blindness, hearing loss, vertigo, neurological conditions, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), diabetes, neuropathy, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, and many others.
Because Social Security cases are a federal administrative practice, our attorneys can handle these cases in any state.
Our attorneys personally conduct your initial consultation and are available to you directly throughout the course of your case. You will know at your very first appointment which of our attorneys will be handling your claim and we will work closely with you to present the very best case on your behalf. You will never feel like “just another client” when dealing with our attorneys and professional staff.
We understand that no one chooses to be disabled and that the disability application process can be very stressful, frustrating, and frightening. We treat all our clients with dignity and respect as we work through this difficult process.
No fee on Social Security Disability claims unless you win.
What We Do
We Understand Your Impairments.
Claims can be won on the basis of one impairment, either physical or psychological, or can be won on the basis of a combination of impairments. There are times when vocational factors such as age, education, and work history are important. We are experienced in reading medical records and understanding the nature of complex diseases and injuries. We know what information is important to obtain from your doctors. We can help the Administrative Law Judge assigned to your claim understand these issues and help you tell “your story”.
We Will Do the “Leg Work” for You.
We will assist you with the routine matters on your claim, such as filing your appeals on time and assisting you in completing standard Social Security questionnaires. We will obtain your doctors’ records, as well as reports and interrogatories. These things can be very burdensome to you but are routine for us. Additionally, we have a highly skilled staff that is dedicated to keeping your claim running smoothly. They are able to quickly and knowledgeably answer your questions. Although hiring an attorney will not necessarily speed the process, we regularly follow the status of your claim to be sure it is being processed properly.
We Represent You at Every Stage in Your Claim.
We will assist you with all stages of your claim, including representing you at administrative hearings and on appeal in Federal Court. In preparation for your administrative hearing, we will explain what issues are most important and will prepare you for the questions that the judge is likely to ask. On appeal in Federal Court, we will submit written legal arguments and will attend oral arguments if necessary. Non-attorney representatives cannot do this for you, and it is very difficult for a non-represented claimant to understand what issues are most important in these proceedings.
We Understand and Explain How Your Benefits Are Calculated.
We understand how the Social Security Administration calculates benefits. If your claim is approved, we monitor your claim to be sure that you are paid correctly. We understand that there are problems that can arise when a person collects Social Security and Workers’ Compensation. We can guide you through these matters.
WE DO NOT COLLECT AN ATTORNEY FEE UNLESS WE WIN YOUR CLAIM. FEES ARE SET BY FEDERAL LAW AND MUST BE APPROVED BY SOCIAL SECURITY.
