Most law is about getting money. For people who have plenty of money, more money is not important. But most Social Security Disability and SSI claims are about money at the level of survival. So, as we see it, Social Security Disability and SSI are some of the most important claims that an attorney can handle. We wanted to do something that mattered, so we chose this practice.
Each of our lawyers handle Social Security Disability and SSI, that is, Supplemental Security Income, claims, and only those claims.
Each of our lawyers has been practicing in this area for many years, from 10 to 30 years. In that time we have handled more than 15,000 claims. This means we appear before our judges enough so we come to better know what they are looking for, and how to best prepare your case before each judge.
Paul is one of 2 lawyers in South Carolina who is Board Certified in Social Security Disability by the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification, and is recognized as a Board Certified Social Security Specialist by the South Carolina Bar.
All of our attorneys are admitted before the Social Security Administration. Paul and Caroline are also admitted in South Carolina state court, Jennifer is admitted in North Carolina, and Paul has recently also passed the North Carolina bar. Mark is also admitted in New York.
Most Social Security lawyers only handle cases through the hearing level. We handle appeals beyond the hearing, to the Appeals Council and to the Federal District Court, where the District Court judge is the first judge in your claim who is not employed by the Social Security Administration.
Each lawyer and all our staff are devoted to Social Security Disability law, and only Social Security Disability law.
We limit ourselves to practicing in North and South Carolina, because that way we can get to know the doctors and judges who affect the outcome of your case.
We are aggressive about getting clear statements and other evidence from doctors to make sure that your case is clearly proved.
We keep in regular contact with you while your case is in progress.
We answer questions and give information on alternatives to Social Security, and on other programs that can help you survive after you become unable to work.
