Only about 35% of disability claims are approved at the initial application stage. But for those who appeal their case to an administrative law judge, about 62% are approved. Depending upon your case, the odds could be much higher. This is why it is important to appeal your case. Don’t give up! Call us today for a free consultation.
Sometimes a Social Security Disability case is denied because the Social Security Administration didn’t have the right medical records to show you are disabled. A lawyer can appeal your case and submit additional evidence to help prove your case.
If you need help filing an initial application for benefits, just call our office and ask for assistance. We will meet with you to discuss your case and help you file the paperwork. If your initial application is denied, you will already have a lawyer who is familiar with your case and ready to file an appeal.

No fees unless we win your case
On Social Security Disability cases, our lawyer receives a fee only if you win your case. Fees are awarded as a percentage of the “back benefits” you receive. There are no fees charged up front. If you lose your case, you will not owe the lawyer anything.
Claimants age 50 years and over
Many claimants have worked hard their whole life, and now find that a medical condition prevents them from doing their normal job. It may seem impossible to get new training or find a new job if you are over 50. Fortunately, the Social Security Administration has special rules for those people ages 50 and older that may help in your situation. A lawyer can apply those rules to your advantage, and help you win your case. For claimants age 50 years and over, having a lawyer on your side can really make a difference.
Get your benefits as quickly as possible!
You probably know that the Social Security Administration works slowly, but we will do everything we can to get your claim approved faster. If we find strong evidence to prove your disability, we can ask the judge to make an “on the record” decision. In certain cases, the judge can approve your claim without having to wait for a hearing.
If you receive a “Disability Determination” or any other correspondence from the Social Security Administration concerning your case, you should contact a lawyer immediately to discuss your rights. Don’t delay! If you do not take action within the proper time limit (usually 60 days) you could lose your right to appeal.
We review cases involving all medical conditions, including: asthma, COPD, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, schizophrenia, depression, other mental disorders, back injury, arthritis, knee replacement surgery, neck surgery, cervical fusion, cancer, cerebral palsy, diabetes, and all other physical conditions that cause restriction or limitation of activities.
Only a licensed attorney can represent you at all levels of the appeal process. We accept claims at all levels.
