Areas of Practice

Social Security Disability Benefits and Supplemental Security Income Claims

Eligibility Requirements

You must be unable to engage in substantial gainful activity (work) as a result of a physical or mental impairment. The impairment must be expected to result in death or last or be expected to last for at least one year. The Social Security Administration considers additional factors, including age, education, and previous work experience.

Application Process

You can apply for Social Security disability benefits either online, over the telephone, or in person at your local Social Security office. We can help you complete and file your application online. If you are unable to travel to our office, we can help you apply online over the phone.

Appeals 

The process to seek and obtain review and reversal of denied claim.

Have you been denied benefits? Many initial claims for Social Security disability and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are denied. We can help you appeal a denial. If your initial claim was denied, we can help you file a request for reconsideration. If your request for reconsideration was denied, we can help you file a request for a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge and represent you at the hearing.

Attorney Fees

There is no attorney fee for representation unless benefits are awarded.  We charge 25% of back benefits up to a maximum fee of $6,000. We do not require payment of out-of-pocket expenses until after the case is completed.  No money is required up front.
