The Law Office of Dan Richard Cohen

Your Case is My Priority. I have more than 20 years of experience and success as a Social Security Disability (SSDI) lawyer handling all types of physical and mental conditions.

Firm Overview

I have two offices conveniently located in San Marcos and Mission Valley. Use either e-mail or call me directly at (760) 888-7338 or (619) 358-5443.

As your Social Security disability attorney, I will help you with your application for Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. While many people choose to apply on their own, when you have an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer on your side you will have someone helping you at every step of the way. The sooner a lawyer can evaluate and start working on your case, the better chance you will have of winning.

I will also help you with the hearing process. This includes obtaining and developing the evidence; properly submitting evidence to the Social Security Administration; helping your doctors and therapists provide reports or forms that are most likely to help your case; helping you understand the hearing process; preparing you for your testimony at your hearing; helping you decide who can be a witness and helping witnesses testify on your behalf.

After an initial application, most claims for benefits may be denied. I am experienced in Social Security and SSI cases can help you with an appeal. I will help you with the numerous forms that Social Security requires, including answering the questions in a way that most helps your case.

Regulations require that Social Security disability attorney fees be approved by the Social Security Administration. In most circumstances, the rules allow for a percentage basis or contingency fee, meaning you will only pay a fee if the case is won (although in some cases there may be additional costs.)
