Hiring a reputable Social Security Disability lawyer is important to the application process. There is a lot of paperwork, hearings to go through, and deadlines to meet that make it difficult for any one person to go through it on their own. This video explains how you can find a quality lawyer to represent you and your case.
In most cases, getting your benefits will take about two years. You want to make sure the lawyer or law firm you hire is someone you can work with over this long period. Pay attention to the way you feel when you first call or talk to them. If you don’t feel like you will be a focus of the attorney or law firm, it’s best to look elsewhere.
Another key thing to look for is adequate experience. It’s best to go with someone who has a lot of experience, specifically in Social Security Disability. You also want someone with a proven track record. Check online for testimonials and reviews from former clients to see the kind of reputation a lawyer or firm has.
You will also need to discuss the price of the law firm so you know what to expect. Many lawyers will have negotiable prices or payment plans you can use to finance their help. For more information, click on the link above.
