The laws, regulations, and SSA rules governing disability can be surprisingly complex and an experienced attorney can help ensure Social Security gives you a fair hearing and applies the correct law in your case.
The SSA process can be difficult to navigate and it is very helpful to have an experienced attorney represent you as early as possible in the process. If you make mistakes in your case early on, you might have to wait a very long time for them to be fixed through the appeals process. The statistics show that people who are represented by attorneys at the ALJ hearing level win more than those who are unrepresented. I worked for SSA as an attorney for years and can help you with your claim at any level
We are committed to helping you win your case, whether it is a VA disability case or SSA disability case, as quickly as possible. Our firm understands that your livelihood may be on the line. Sometimes, there are processes that can be used to expedite your hearing date or ask for an on the record decision without a hearing. As a former government attorney, I am very familiar with these processes and how to use them to your advantage. Most importantly, we will help you gather evidence and prepare you for your hearing. Some representatives and attorneys will not even meet with you until your hearing date. Not us, I will stay in communication with you during the pendency of your case and will be your attorney the entire time.
