Social Security: SSD/SSDI, SSI

This area of practice is available in Cumberland and New Hanover (NC) counties.

Social Security Disability Benefits, or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), are a lifeline for many who have suffered debilitating injuries that prevent them from working. Unfortunately, the complexities of the government claims processes can be intimidating.

The fact is if you have ever had Social Security taxes deducted from your paycheck, and you are injured or experience other medical conditions that have or will keep you from working for 12 months or longer, you may be eligible to receive disability benefits. Even if you have not worked or paid Social Security taxes, you may still be eligible for certain benefits.

Our HIGH PERFORMANCE LAW™ team can help you navigate the ultra-complex course to file your initial claim or pursue it further through appeals if denied. We offer an intimate knowledge of the complexities of the government claims and appeals process and have the experience to pursue the course of action that gives you the best chance of fulfilling your claim.

We stand ready to help you with your claim in two ways:

  1. Filing Initial Claim: Unlike other disability advocates who only accept clients who have already been denied disability benefits, our team can assist you from the start of your claim. We’ll even be there with you to help you with the initial application and accompanying forms.
  2. Appeal of denial: We can also help if you’ve been denied for disability benefits. There are multiple routes to appeal a denial and we have the experience to determine which one to take that will most likely lead to a successful* claim. We’ll guide you through the paperwork process and vigorously argue your claim on your behalf.

For our Social Security Disability clients, we offer a free consultation that is on a contingent fee basis — so if we don’t win, you don’t pay an attorney fee.**
