Need help with Social Security Disability?

If you are unable to work due to a long-term injury or disability you may be eligible for disability benefits or social security disability benefits (SSDI). While you have a legal right to apply for disability benefits on your own (without a lawyer), it might not be in your best interests. Cases can take up to two years and many first-time applicants are denied. Hiring a qualified disability attorney will increase your chances of getting approved or winning an appeal.

Ask yourself the 3 C’s:

  • Credentials ‐ How many cases has this attorney worked on similar to yours?
  • Comfort ‐ Who are you most comfortable working with? Is the lawyer’s office nearby? How and how often will they get in touch with you?
  • Cost ‐ Have expected costs and fees been clearly explained to you? It’s OK to ask for an estimate.
