Finding the Right Social Security Disability Lawyer in Phoenix
Capably managing your appeal for benefits
The United States Social Security Administration has seen a sharp increase in applications for benefits under the Social Security Disability program in recent years. While applicants do not compete against each other for benefits, the Social Security Administration has limited resources and denies a high percentage of initial claims. A Phoenix Social Security disability lawyer from Taylor and Associates can give you significant help in obtaining benefits.
Our assistance is critical when you receive a denial letter. If the SSA denies your claim, you have only 60 days to file for reconsideration after a claim denial and another 60 days to file an appeal if your reconsideration application is denied. This is the time to find a skilled Social Security disability lawyer. Our attorneys guide our clients through the appeals process by filing the appropriate paperwork, collecting evidence and appearing at hearings.
Experience is essential for success in Phoenix disability claims
Lawyers have different areas of focus. Many never go to court, and those who do may not have any experience with administrative hearings. Dealing with the Social Security Administration is a complex task that requires specific knowledge of federal law and administrative procedures. A private citizen or an inexperienced attorney can easily get lost in the red tape of this huge government bureaucracy and become disheartened by its impersonal treatment. Additional areas of focus for your disability attorney should include:
- Medical background. Your attorney must be able to access and understand medical records, gather other evidence and communicate with treating doctors.
- Referral resources. If you need additional treatment or evidence for your claim, a skilled disability attorney should have the knowledge to identify the need for other doctors or specialists, and he or she should be able to refer you to reputable medical resources.
Don't pay any upfront fees for legal services
A qualified Social Security disability attorney should be willing to take your case on a contingency basis, so you won't be liable for any upfront fees or out-of-pocket expenses. Don't get trapped into paying hefty legal fees. At Taylor and Associates, our dedicated attorneys work hard for two reasons: We care about your quality of life, and if we don't win for you, we don't get paid.
