Does it help to hire a Disability Attorney?

There are many advantages of having an attorney to assist in applying for disability. Most attorneys will not charge a fee to evaluate the case. Additionally, most attorneys work on contingency, which means the ATTORNEY DOES NOT GET PAID UNLESS YOU WIN. So an applicant has nothing to lose and everything to gain by consulting a disability lawyer. Further the attorney can assist with getting the necessary medical documentation, work history, etc. to prove disability.


  1. I think it helps to get an attorney. The process seems to take forever and if you get turned down at a hearing, you have to start over. I had no idea what the social security office wanted when I went to my hearing alone.

  2. Law firms are spread far and wide over the stateS. Most of these firms are
    mid sized organizations.
