Social Security has a very strict definition of disability. It’s difficult to prove you are eligible. Everything in your application has to be done correctly. You need to provide proof that Social Security finds persuasive. An experienced Social Security Disability attorney understands Social Security’s complicated formulas. He or she knows the best way to present your case in the most favorable light so that you will be most likely to have Social Security approve your application.
There are two situations where an attorney will be helpful. One is when you are applying for benefits for the first time. The other is if your application has been denied and you want to file an appeal.
It is especially important to hire an attorney if you are filing an appeal. The attorney will know what to do to improve your initial application so that you have a better chance of winning your appeal. The attorney will make sure that you have all the necessary documents and medical records to provide a complete picture of your disability. Your chances of winning an appeal are much better when you hire experienced attorneys to help you.
Don’t worry if you don’t have enough money to pay for a lawyer. At Katz & Associates, we don’t charge you any legal fees unless you win your case. If you do win, we take our fees out of your benefit award.

From Our Clients
I just wanted to let you know how happy I was with the job that Maggie Langdale did in getting me approved for SSDI and maybe more importantly, not having to have a review for another 5-7 years! Now I can concentrate more on my health, especially with the added benefit of Medicare next December.
Maggie went out of her way explaining every step of the process and answering all my questions on the phone or immediately after I emailed her. We reviewed all my answers to the lengthy paperwork and made several important changes. I would definitely advise anyone to use Maggie and your law firm!
