Binder & Binder, a national Social Security disability firm, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month leaving their 57,000 clients looking for new representation. Contact our local Utah law firm today. Regardless of whether you have
6 questions you should ask yourself:
- Do you feel comfortable communicating with the attorney?
- Does this attorney understand you and your situation, and will he or she be able to tell your story?
- Can your attorney give you the personal attention your case needs or does the office handle too many cases?
- Does the attorney focus on Social Security cases or is his practice more diverse?
- Will the attorney adequately prepare you and your case for a hearing before a judge?
- Does the attorney anticipate your needs?
Many of these national law firms have so many clients that they conduct most of their business through the mail. You never have in person meetings or get to communicate with your attorney on the phone. But handing over your case is a big deal. All of the sudden this portion of your life is in the hands of someone else. For this reason there must be trust between you and your attorney. You want to know you can get answers to your questions and be in contact when you need to be.
On the side of the coin, there are other attorneys who are general practicing attorneys who handle so many different kinds of law that they don’t really have much expertise in the area of Social Security disability. These attorneys will not be able to maximize your chances of obtaining benefits or adequately prepare you to give testimony before a judge.
Finally, you need an attorney that anticipates your needs. One that knows what questions you will have and addresses them ahead of time. One that is familiar enough with the process to anticipate your problems and to have solutions readily at hand.
How we are different?
At Summit Disability Law Group, we have taken an entirely different approach to handling Social Security Disability cases. We believe in placing your needs first. It sounds obvious, doesn’t it? Our clients have said that, “[the attorneys] really treated [them] as a person rather than just another client.” This statement perfectly captures Summit Disability Law Group’s values. When you approach us seeking assistance, the first thing we do is help you understand your case.
A frequent question we are asked is, “What exactly is social security disability and how does it affect me?” Serious illness or injury can evolve into a situation that keeps you out of work. Such a disability can impact your ability to provide for your family and yourself financially and medically. We know how important obtaining these benefits can be for your livelihood. That is why we have built a firm that approaches helping disability claimants so differently than all the rest. Our approach provides you with the help you need so you can focus on your well-being and living your life.
