Social Security Disability & Supplemental Security Income Claims

The Pile Law Firm represents individuals seeking Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.  I handle cases from the initial application to the appeal and hearing process.   I guide clients throughout every step of the appeals process,.

I work for my clients on a contingency basis. This means that I accept no attorney fees for my legal services unless my clients receive their disability benefits.  For some of my clients, traveling to my office is difficult. In such cases I can begin to work on your case following a telephone conference, and the exchange of paperwork. In special circumstances I am available to make home visits as is necessary.

If you are interested in filing an initial application or have been denied SSD or SSI benefits, contact my office today.  I will act quickly and work diligently to get you the care and financial support you deserve.

The application process for benefits is complicated. After your SSD or SSI application is filed your benefit claim will be evaluated by a disability adjudicator and most likely denied.

If you choose to have an experienced lawyer prepare your application, you increase your chances of getting your disability benefits awarded at the very first stage of the process.

If your claim is denied, you should not get frustrated and give up. Many valid claims are initially denied.  There are many reasons having nothing to do with the merits of your case that might cause your claim to be denied.  The important thing to remember is that you or your representative must file an appeal within 60 days after the denial of your claim otherwise your case will be closed.

If you have to appeal to a hearng in front of an Administrative Law Judge, thorough preparation is the key to success at this stage.  The judges in the hearing offices are very knowledgeable, fair and well prepared.  If your medical or mental health condition leaves you unable to perform basic work activities, there is a good chance that we will be able to win a favorable decision and recover both monthly cash benefits for you as well as a lump sum check for past due benefits owed.

The Social Security judge listening to your case will have a very clear idea of the type of evidence he or she needs to see before approving your case.  My job, as your attorney, is to identify what medical and vocational evidence will be necessary to win your case and to clearly and concisely present that evidence to the judge.
