Why Hire a Social Security Lawyer?




The process of applying for early social security disability benefits can be long and frustrating. Most people who apply for social security benefits are turned down a minimum of two times. Without legal help, it may take up to 2 ½ years to get benefits! We can help speed up this process so you can take care of your injury and family. According to the Social Security Administration, a "Disability" can be physical, emotional, or a combination of both. In order to obtain benefits, you must prove your disability is severe enough to keep you from working in any paying job for at least 12 consecutive months. Factors that influence the legal finding of disability are the claimant's age, education, work experience, compliance with medical treatment, daily activities and the kind and extent of treatment. We’ll help you gather all the relevant information and show the Administration that you deserve benefits.
