Yes, free of charge by phone. Between 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the situation.
There are no legal fees unless we win. We represent individuals only on a contingency basis, charging no more than 25% of past due benefits, not to exceed $6,000, in winning a client's case at the administrative level. This contractual agreement is consistent with the Federal Social Security statute regulating attorney fees. Initial consultations with the attorney is part of the contingency nature of the contract.
Office Hours are Monday - Friday, 9:00 am to 500 p.m, by appointment only. Please call before coming in.
I first became interested in Social Security Disability law in the early 1990's from my own experience having had a temporary illness, and having had to apply for Social Security disability benefits. It's the reason why I eventually became a disability attorney, and it's the reason why I only work on Social Security cases. I've seen the process from both sides, as a claimant and as an attorney, and I know how frustrating it can be. I also know, personally, what it takes to win a disability claim.
