Representing Clients' Best Interests in the SSD Process

Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) is possible to do on your own. This leaves many individuals to ask themselves "why do I need an attorney for an SSD claim?"

Initial Applications

When you have determined that you are most likely eligible for SSD benefits and are moving forward with the application process, it may be beneficial to have an attorney help you. Using our experience and knowledge of the SSD/SSI application process, we can ensure that your application is filled out as thoroughly as possible in order to increase your chances of securing benefits.

SSD Denials

Denied applications are not uncommon in the process of seeking SSD benefits. In fact, an estimated 25 percent of initial applications are denied. Many individuals who filed their applications on their own, and received a denial, give up at this point. However, you should keep pressing forward. Whether our firm handled your initial application and the claim was denied, or you have received a denial from the Social Security Administration (SSA) and are now looking for assistance, we can help.


An appeal is extremely difficult to attempt without the help of a knowledgeable SSD lawyer. Our firm is skilled at handling SSD denial appeals and can walk you through the process, file your completed appellate documents and zealously articulate your situation at any hearings.
