If you are unable to work due to a medical condition, or you have a disability which is expected to last one year or more SSDI insurance benefits may be provided to ensure your financial support.

As mentioned more than half of the applications received by the Social Security Administration are denied. If your application is denied we are here to help. In the case of a denial it must first be appealed through the Social Security Administration, more than 50% of claimants who appeal the denial are later awarded their benefits. A primary reason for the greater acceptance rate during the appeal process is that at this time the case is brought before an administrative law judge. This allows the claimant to give their own first hand account of the physical or mental limitations to your ability to work. The judge at this time is able to see the effect of the disability and make a true justice decision. Our lawyers are here to assist in guiding you in the appropriate direction and ensuring proper action is taken on each claim in a shorter amount of time to allow for our clients to thrive in the justice system.
