A Social Security disability attorney is a guide to making the disability process much simpler for you; from the initial application, appealing denial to preparing for an administrative hearing. An experienced disability attorney can protect you from making common errors that can harm chances of approval.

Another advantage to having a competent attorney is to help tell your story, your personal struggle with medical conditions, which can be a powerful advantage at an administrative hearing. Your attorney will help prepare you for testimony as well as represent you at your hearing and explain why your impairments prevent you from sustaining employment.

Using an attorney that is familiar with the process can make the difference between a successful and failed claim. Obtaining necessary medical evidence to support you claim, help with filing appeals, assistance in completing SSA forms, and ensuring you are paid correctly when your claim is approved are all benefits of hiring a disability attorney.
