Why Would I Want to Hire a Disability Attorney
and How Much Will it Cost?
An experienced lawyer for your Georgia Social Security disability case can be very helpful to you in many ways. First, as your lawyer I can make sure that you have applied for all disability programs
for which you are eligible. For example, I have seen claimants whose Disability applications were not processed by Social Security, or whose applications were lost. In several cases, I have been able to argue that
the mere evidence of a communication with Social Security is enough to prove that an application was filed, thereby preserving my client's rights.
If Social Security loses your claims file, I can preserve your filing dates and help rebuild the file with the documents in my file. My staff and I are aware of what should be happening with your case,
so we can often spot a problem before Social Security recognizes that something is amiss.
As your lawyer, I can determine if you are eligible to "reopen" old applications. In some cases, a prior application, even one filed three or four years earlier, can be reopened, thereby
making you eligible for years of back benefits. If you ever filed an old application, or even if you simply called Social Security to inquire about benefits, you could lose thousands of dollars if you fail to
look into reopening an old application. There are specific rules that govern reopening an old case and you have to request this action if your want to maximize your financial recovery.
I can also evaluate your case and suggest a strategy to win your case. After handling hundreds of cases, I have a fairly good perspective as to what cases are winnable and what cases are not, and
what it takes to win a case. While my opinion is not a determination of how your case will end up, I can offer you the benefit of my experience. More importantly, if you decide to hire me, I will make sure
that your case file is up-to-date with all medical records. In addition, I will work with your doctors to "translate" your medical problems into work limitations so that Social Security can evaluate your
If your case ends up before a judge, I will present a well-reasoned, solid argument on your behalf. I will also make sure that your claims file is up to date. My experience has been that claimants
appearing before a judge without representation usually have a difficult time presenting their case - if you are end up waiting two or more years for your day in court, you may want to strongly consider the idea of proceeding
If you choose to hire me, I handle most cases on a "contingency" basis, meaning that I am paid only if I win. My fee is typically 25% of any past due benefits I can collect for you and under
this “fee agreement” kind of contract my fee is limited to $6,000.. My attorney-client contract is available on this web site for you to review.
