Attorney Matt Nielson and his father Barrie Nielson have 27 years of combined experience working with SSD and SSI clients.
When you are thinking of applying for Social Security disability (SSD) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), there are a lot of factors that come into play. There is your disability or injury, there are financial considerations, claimants are often in a great deal of pain, there are doctor's appointments to attend and treatments to endure. On top of all this, there is the confusing maze of SSD rules and regulations to wade through in order to get the benefits you need.
Matt Nielson Law Offices, P.C. is available to help clients at whatever stage of the disability process they are at. We work with clients from the very beginning of the claim through its final resolution. Some firms will only become involved if a claim has already been denied. However, Matt and Barrie help clients prepare that initial application, which goes a long way towards setting up for a favorable decision from the start.
Our reputation of excellent service shines from the moment we answer our phones, through our work with claimants at times long past the decision they receive. We frequently visit the claimant in their home to get to know them and their conditions personally. We often appeal cases and have been quite successful in obtaining reversals and remands. We also help clients find community resources and information on returning to work in a position suitable to the client's circumstances.
Barrie Nielson is a former rehabilitation counselor working with SSD clients and lawyer Matt Nielson has been practicing in this area for his entire legal career. Along with their office personnel, Joanie and John, they have helped thousands of clients across the country with their SS disability questions and claims.
