Why Hire A Social Security Disability Attorney?
Applying for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration is not a fast or easy task. Generally, it is a lengthy process that may require multiple steps and a hearing to establish your case fully.
Peace of mind
When you are coping with the day-to-day struggles of living with a disability, the last thing you need is more stress and worry. You can instead obtain some peace of mind leaving your case in the hands of the experienced professionals at Burgess & Christensen.
As a disability law firm, we focus exclusively on helping people like you obtain much-needed benefits. Our legal team includes accomplished attorneys as well as medical record experts and competent, experienced staff. Together, we will build the strongest possible case for you.
Applicants who hire an attorney are statistically more likely to obtain disability benefits than those who attempt to handle the process on their own.*
We can help at any time
You can hire us at any stage of your case, for example:
- When you need guidance on whether you qualify for disability benefits
- When you decide to proceed with an initial application
- After your initial application gets denied
- When you are facing the all-important administrative hearing
- When you would like to pursue an appeal before the Social Security Appeals Council or Federal District Court
Of course, the sooner you involve a lawyer, the better.
Pay nothing upfront. If you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.
Don’t let fears about the cost of legal services prevent you from seeking professional guidance. At Burgess & Christensen, we understand that your financial picture may be far from ideal — after all, that’s why you are seeking benefits.
We handle disability benefit claims on a contingency fee basis. This means you will not pay attorney fees upfront, and we will not get paid unless you receive benefits.
