Disability
26 years of disability experience! We practice in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Vermont.
We are Social Security Disability attorneys who can help you file a claim. When you are disabled from illness or injury, you may no longer be able to bring home a paycheck at a time when you have new expenses for your medical and nursing care.

For those with a disabling injury or condition, the Social Security Administration (SSA) provides federal disability income. While these benefits are considered entitlements, applicants must often fight for them. The application and appeals process can be confusing, frustrating and full of long waiting periods and multiple levels of appeals.

HOW WE HELP?
We are ready to assist you with your Social Security Disability claim. As one of the most highly respected Social Security advocates in the region, our attorneys have impressive legal credentials and a track record of success in our tireless fight for the injured and disabled.
SSDI
The only law firm in New England who has a certified Social Security Disability Advocate, D. Lance Tillinghast, certified by the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification.
The Social Security Administration receives millions of first-time disability claims every year, and denies most of them due to technicalities. Perhaps the claimant filled the forms out incorrectly or failed to provide sufficient medical evidence. They may not see your disability on their approved list of disabling diseases, or maybe your disability is the result of multiple conditions.

Eligibility often hinges on complex rules and criteria, including whether the claimant cannot perform his or her current job or any other job and whether the disability will last longer than one year.

The initial denial opens the door to a lengthy appeals process including Reconsideration, Administrative Hearings, Appeals Council reviews and federal court. We know this process extremely well.

We can help!
