Do I Need A Lawyer To File A Social Security Disability Claim?

You do not need an attorney to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). However, those who hire an attorney are more likely to be successful than those who apply on their own.

At Dale Buchanan & Associates, we offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions about applying for Social Security Disability benefits. We offer this consultation without cost and without any obligation to hire us.

Why Hiring A Social Security Disability Lawyer Is Helpful

If you suffer from a disability that prevents you from working, this is likely the first time you have had to deal with the complex process of applying for disability benefits. That inexperience can be costly. The majority of people who apply are turned down on their first attempt. In many cases, this is either because they are unaware of the rules or they do not provide proper documentation of their claims.

Some law firms tell their clients that they do not need to hire a disability lawyer until after their initial application has been turned down. At Dale Buchanan & Associates, we represent clients at any stage of the claims process, from initial application to appeal. Our lawyers understand the rules and can help you provide proper documentation of your claim.

Since our fee is based on a percentage of the back payments you are owed at the time your disability claim is approved, it costs no more to hire us at the beginning of your case than later. In fact, if we are able to help you obtain benefits during your initial application, our fees would actually be lower since Social Security would owe you less in back payments.

We never charge any fees unless we are successful in helping you obtain benefits.
