How Does Hiring an Attorney
Help Me Get My Benefits?
Most benefits claims are initially denied at the claim and reconsideration phases. This is true, even for those that are represented by a non-attorney disability advocate or an attorney. This means that most claims will be heard in front of an administrative law judge before disability benefits can be received. At this stage, having an attorney will make a difference in winning your claim. Our team will make sure that you have the best chances of achieving your benefits claim.
We understand that preparing for a hearing is stressful and you may be at a loss for what to do beforehand. Our lawyers will guide you every step of the way and increase your chances of having your claim approved. They will prepare you for the types of questions that will be asked and order necessary medical tests from your doctor.
Can I Win Without An Attorney?
You can win a case without legal representation, but it kind of like riding a bike without a helmet, it’s risky! The odds are not in your favor when a claim is brought before an adjudicated law judge, without representation present. Additionally, claimants, who are represented have a higher chance of obtaining a disability onset date. A disability onset date affects how much backpay is rewarded. Meaning, the earlier you can prove your condition existed, the more backpay you are eligible for.
