Massachusetts Social Security Disability Lawyers
No matter where you live, how old you are, what kind of work you’ve done in the past, or how far you went in school, Social Security Disability might be your best (or only) option. That means that being successful in your Disability application can be the thing that is able to keep a roof over your head and put food on your table. That’s why it’s important to put yourself in the best position by doing your research before choosing a Disability Attorney.How to Pick a Social Security Lawyer
Did you know that many non-lawyers can represent people applying for Social Security Disability? Even some of the most famous people you see on TV commercials for Social Security Disability aren’t even lawyers, even though they want you to think that they are. Therefore, it’s important to know that the person you’re hiring is actually a lawyer, and that the person actually knows what he/she is doing.
It’s also important to find someone who is local. Many of the national Social Security Disability firms are just that: national. The number you see on TV might be for a call center across the country. That call center will then randomly assign you a lawyer, who might be across the country. In that case, it’s usually not until you walk into your hearing that you meet your lawyer for the first time.
We think it’s important to meet with our clients. These meetings allow us to get to know our clients. We understand that a person’s life is more than what’s in the medical records. Importantly, getting this additional information helps us win claims. This information is also important so that we know when our clients need help creating a record. Whether it’s finding the right doctor or seeking the advice of a vocational expert, having an open line of communication with our clients is vital.
Most importantly, your Social Security Disability Attorney should be compassionate. Most people don’t want to be applying for disability; they’d rather be working. We understand that, and we know that the cause of your disability is likely out of your control. What we see all the time are people who kept working long after they were recommended to go out on disability. They defied the odds until they just couldn’t do it anymore.Statewide Social Security Disability Representation
