What Does a Social Security Disability Lawyer Do?

The disability claims process is unfamiliar to many people — even those with disabilities. Because of this, many do not know how helpful an attorney can be to a successful claim. At Summit Disability Law Group, one of the most common questions we get is: what does a Social Security disability lawyer do? Our answer is that we help you get the benefits you deserve. This post explains how we help you win your disability case.

How Can a Social Security Disability Lawyer Help Me?

Each disability claim is unique, and we can help you in unique ways. However, we help all of our clients in three major ways.

  • Navigating the System

The disability claims process is complicated, and can be confusing. This is why we chose to dedicate our practice to helping deserving claimants complete and file strong applications. We know what the Social Security Administration is looking for and can help you build a strong claim.

  • Representing You at Hearings

Most disability claims are denied at first. However, this does not mean they have no chance of success. Appeals are often successful, and if necessary, you can request a hearing before a judge. A hearing is the last chance for your case, so presenting your strongest claim is very important. We are familiar with hearings and can help you prepare to appear before a judge.

  • Improving Your Chances

We believe that our experience with and knowledge of the claims process can help you. Getting benefits to help yourself live with a disability is very important. We take seriously the opportunity to help people receive these benefits. We will not collect any legal fees until after you win your case, because our top priority is your case — not making money.
