Why Do I Need An Attorney, And When Should I Hire One To File For Social Security Disability Benefits?
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.
Hiring Terry Katz and associates to represent my interests in my Workers Compensation and Social Security Disability case proved to be a smart decision that yielded an extremely successful outcome.
Through the lengthy and intricate process I came to realize just how valuable having a team of highly skilled representation was, and that is just how to describe the law firm of Terry Katz and Associates “Highly skilled legal representation”. I’d like to thank the entire team who worked on both my cases all of whom were always professional, knowledgeable and extremely caring. Throughout my entire case all of my calls and emails were always returned in a timely manner. My questions always answered competently and professionally. I always understood the process and felt a confidence in the process that I would not have had if not for hiring Terry Katz and Associates.
Mostly I’d like to thank Ms. Langdale who worked tirelessly on both my workers compensation case and my social security disability case. Her representation and legal prowess in the court room was nothing short of impressive to witness. I will never forget how confidently represented and protected I felt during her opening remarks at my social security disability hearing.
During these difficult times I was truly grateful to have Ms. Langdale working so diligently and expertly for my interests.
