Should I Consider a Lawyer?
Do I Need an Attorney for My SSDI/SSI Case?
California Social Security Disability Lawyer
The process of filing for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a confusing, time-consuming, and frustrating process. In addition to complex federal laws and filing requirements, the painstaking process of compiling medical records and obtaining evidence necessary for a successful claim can be daunting for anyone.
Compounding these difficulties is the simple fact that anyone applying for SSDI or SSI is dealing with a disability that causes pain, fatigue, or other debilitating symptoms.
If you have a disability or impairment that is limiting your ability to care for yourself or your family, let an attorney worry about the hassles of the application process. At Jorgensen Law, we take great joy in helping good people facing difficult life challenges. We practice exclusively in disability cases, including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and veterans’ benefits.
Your Chances Improve with an Attorney: It’s a Proven Fact
National figures show that people with an attorney are more likely to receive Social Security Disability benefits. Believe it or not, the Social Security Administration denies approximately 70 percent of all initial applications for Social Security Disability benefits. Many people choose not to appeal their denial or eventually give up because they lose hope.
Relentless Social Security Advocates
Our law firm is aggressive in pursuit of our clients’ Social Security Disability claims. We help clients with initial applications and appeals. If your initial application is denied, we will appeal on your behalf. If you are denied at the reconsideration stage of your case, we can appeal again and request an in person hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). If the decision of the ALJ is not favorable, we can appeal to the Appeals Council and if that does not work, we can even file a civil suit in federal court.
We are relentless on behalf of our clients. We don’t quit until all avenues for success have been pursued. Due to our continued efforts through all stages of the process, we have successfully obtained an award of benefits for approximately 90 percent of our clients.
