Do I Need a Disability Attorney?
Although you are not required to hire an attorney to represent you in your Social Security claim, people with experienced representation tend to win their cases more often than those who are not represented. Our knowledgeable staff will ensure that important information gets associated with your file at Social Security, and we are adept at meeting deadlines and avoiding unnecessary delays. We will contact your medical providers to secure all relevant medical records and provide them with questionnaires designed to facilitate a successful outcome. If a hearing becomes necessary, our attorneys will prepare a legal brief setting forth the basis for a favorable decision and will attend the hearing with you to present your case. Contact us today for a free evaluation.
What Does a Disability Lawyer Cost?
We work on a contingency basis. This means you pay no fees unless you are awarded benefits. If you are awarded benefits, Social Security will acknowledge that they should have been paying you all along and calculate what they owe you in past-due benefits.
Social Security will withhold 25% of your past-due benefits and pay us directly. Notably, from the day you are approved and going forward, no money goes toward the attorney’s fees. This means that you can retain us even if you have no money at the time, and as soon as you are approved, you will receive your full benefit amount.
SSDI and SSI claims often take a long time for the Social Security Administration to approve. If you believe that you will be unable to work for 12 months or more, you should apply immediately. Don’t get overwhelmed! Contact us today for a free consultation. We have attorneys in many convenient locations including, but not limited to: Providence, New Bedford, South Kingstown, Warwick and many more – call today to see how our office can help you!
