How Our Firm Can Help You

The Disability Determination Services (DDS) receives millions of applications for disability benefits each and every year. In order to process these vast quantities, many claims are denied simply due to inadequate proof of eligibility. The lawyers at our firm know exactly what evidence you can provide to obtain fair benefits and could assist you in filing your claim. We are prepared and capable of answering any SSD questions you may have and will provide you with support and guidance every step of the way.

Even when all measures are taken to file a valid claim, you may still be denied SSD benefits. This is not the end, however, since you have the ability to appeal the claim. This process is just as complex as applying for benefits and can take as many as four steps to obtain a reversal. The first is reconsideration; the second is an administrative hearing; the third is a review of the decision; and the fourth is a lawsuit in District Court. A disability attorney could counsel and guide you through each of these situations and help you make educated and beneficial decisions.

Social Security disability benefits can be paid for a number of different disabilities. Some of these are physical impairments, such as blindness, paralysis, heart failure, and much more. Other cases involve mental disorders, such as schizophrenia or autism. Consult with an attorney to determine whether or not you may be eligible before you attempt to apply for disability. You may also be able to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if you are a low or no income individual who is age 65 or older, blind, or disabled. Find out more by calling our offices at your earliest convenience.
