Social Security Disability

Please read the following general information about Social Security Disability Benefits. If you would like to set up an appointment, or need more information, please call our office.

Can someone testify for me?

Generally, the Judges only want to hear from you, but in some instances I do call other witnesses. I will be with you, and I will prepare you for the hearing so you will know what to expect. 

What Are The Fees?

Our fee is usually 25% of the retroactive benefits or $6,000, whichever is less. We only get paid if we are successful.

What are the fees to handle my claim?

First, there is no fee to meet with us to discuss your claim. If you do hire us, we would only get paid if we win. The fee would be paid from past-due benefits only. We do not charge for the cost of getting your medical records. 

What Does My Attorney Do For An Appeal?

Your attorney can make sure that the appeal is properly filed after social security denies your application. Generally, you have 65 days from the date of a denial letter to file an appeal. Your attorney will also request medical records to support your claim. Finally, your attorney will represent you at the hearing with the administrative law judge.

What Makes A Person Disabled For Social Security Purposes?

A person is considered disabled if he has a physical, emotional, or combination of conditions that render him unable to work, considering his age, education and past work history. The condition must have existed for one year or be expected to last one year, or to result in death.

You May Be Entitled To Retroactive Benefits.

You may get retroactive social security disability benefits going back prior to your application. There are no retroactive benefits for supplemental security income prior to the application.

What's Being Said...

  • We want to give you our heartfelt thanks for the good job you did for [our daughter]. We won not just because the facts were on our side-but mostly because the Judge appreciates that you are a perfect gentleman (not a heavy hitter).
    - Joan and Jim
  • A million thanks for everything. It must feel good to know how much you are helping people!
    - Claudia
