Why do I need legal representation for my Social Security Disability claim?

  • Deadlines and Paperwork ~ You will be dealing with a large governmental bureaucracy and the process is time consuming. The Social Security Administration requires you to file precise paperwork with the proper department by their deadlines. Most initial applications are denied. Each appeal must be filed using the proper form and meeting the deadline. You can be denied for missing a deadline regardless of your disability.
  • Proof of Disability ~ You must prove you are disabled under Social Security's definitions of disability.
  • Hearing Advocate ~ Most people win their cases at the hearing level. This means you must present your case before a judge. Medical and vocational experts will testify and you may not have the expertise to cross-examine them.
