Social Security Disability Law
Social Security and Disability Law is a complex legal field, and for many applicants, hiring a disability lawyer is the best way to ensure a disability claim is approved and SSI or SSDI benefits are acquired. Many disability claims are initially denied, but can often be appealed at several different levels in order to obtain benefits for the applicant, a process that is best handled by an attorney with experience appealing to the board. Other applicants have additional options, such as federal disability retirement benefits for federal employees.
Areas of expertise include supplemental security income claims, ERISA, social security disability insurance claims, long-term disability claims, short-term disability claims and special needs trusts.
