Social Security Disability

Social Security disability benefits are for those people who are not able to work due to illness or injury.  If you believe that the Social Security Administration has wrongfully denied your application, we can help you.  We will work to help you receive the benefits to which you are legally entitled.  The process used for determining disability is very technical and complex. The formula considers the Social Security rules and regulations, your work history, and your medical problems.

We have been helping people obtain the benefits to which they are entitled for 35 years.  Further, our affiliation with the National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representatives (NOSSCR) provides us with the most up to date resources from all over the country to allow us to represent our clients more effectively before the Social Security Administration.

We believe that when you are unable to work because of a disability your application for Social Security Disability benefits is your request to government to return to you the funds you have invested with the Social Security Administration so that you would have some income should you become disabled.

Indeed, we have found that many people simply give up if their application is denied rather than seeking legal help to continue the process.  This is often a mistake as good legal representation can lead to a reversal of the denial of your application.

To help you and improve your chances of receiving the benefits to which you are entitled, our firm provides you with three fundamental services.

  1. First, we will provide you a free consultation to determine if we will be able to help you receive the benefits for which you applied.  We can do this over the telephone, in our office, or both.
  2. Second, if we believe we can help you, we will agree to represent you on a risk free basis: we will not charge you a fee for our legal services unless we are able recover benefits for you. 
  3. Third, if you would like us to represent you, we will provide effective and compassionate legal representation and further guidance as needed to help you through other legal problems which may arise during your Social Security case. If applicable we may also be able to help you receive MaineCare as well.
