Disability is defined as an inability to engage in substantial gainful activity for a continuous period of 12 months as the result of a medically determinable physical or mental impairment.

Generally, most clients under the age of 50 have a much higher burden of proof. A consistent work history and ongoing medical treatment are essential to establishing a legitimate and viable claim.

Navigating the Social Security Disability process can be an overwhelming task. By hiring me you will receive the benefit of my experience, both as an attorney for a Social Security Judge,and as an advocate for thousands of clients like you.

You have to know how to focus on the information that will most effectively assist an administrative law judge to understand your claim. You don't embark on a road trip without knowing both your destination and your route. Filing an application is like driving out onto the road with your car. You need to know how to reach your destination before you start.

The amount of your attorney's fee cannot exceed 25% of back pay or $6000, whichever is less. The fee is set and approved by the Social Security Administration in each case. This means that you can afford to hire an attorney who offers an extremely high level of personal attention rather than opt to be a number at a large firm. Most importantly, there is no money to pay up front and no fee to pay unless you win your claim.

It's not uncommon for people representing themselves to be denied many times. There are steps that you can take that will immediately improve your future chances of success with your disability claim. Before you appeal contact my office for a free evaluation to discuss your claim.
