​Setting Your Case On Solid Footing

We understand the many challenges involved in getting Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD) benefits. When you’re already struggling with a disability, navigating a difficult process and encountering setbacks can be tremendously discouraging.

We can help you to properly prepare your initial application to help ensure that your file begins with the information that will maximize your chances of success. If you’ve experienced a setback such as a denial of benefits, we will fight hard to get your case turned around. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling SSI claims and SSD appeals at both the administrative level and in federal court. We also have in-depth experience handling SSI and SSD claims involving psychiatric conditions, an area in which we truly shine.

A Firm Where You’ll Be Treated Like Family

When you’re dealing with the combined stress of a disability and the headaches of pursuing SSI or SSD benefits, you deserve a legal team that will prioritize you. Here, you will find a team committed to your success. We will go out of our way to ensure that you feel heard, validated and supported. We want you to feel comfortable turning to us with any questions or concerns throughout the process.
