How Do I Select a Social Security Disability Lawyer?

Finding the right Social Security Disability (SSD) lawyer is key to winning your Social Security Disability claim and to ensuring your application is professionally prepared and presented. The Law Firm’s founding attorney, Vaughn Clauson, was one of the first lawyers to become a Certified Social Security Disability Law Specialist in North Carolina.

Law accepts SSD and SSI clients in every state, not just in North Carolina. This law firm’s expertise and organization enables every SSD claimant to work with the Law team from the beginning of their application process through to the final benefit award decision.

Finding the EXPERT Social Security Disability lawyer for your SSD claim

If you think you are eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits and you think all lawyers are equally qualified, you’re making a mistake.

The federal laws, rules, and regulations governing who is eligible for SSD benefits and how applicants can get the maximum SSD benefit payment is complicated and extremely detailed. Only through years of experience representing thousands of SSD applicants can a lawyer practice Disability Law at the level of professionalism and effectiveness you find at the Law Firm.

Beginning the application process — When a new client contacts Law to begin the SSD claim process, our team immediately collects all the necessary biographical data, work history, and a full narrative of your impairments that form the basis of your SSD benefits application. Our administrative staff then reaches out to gather all your medical and healthcare-related records, including the following:

  • Any current records and notes relating to your condition from treating physicians, clinics, hospitals, specialist referrals, radiologists, diagnoses, findings or observations, lab test results, MRI’s, CT scans, x-rays, etc.;
  • All information on the dates of your employment as recorded in the records of the Social Security Administration;
  • Any information or records you personally keep or that you generated to memorialize your condition, complaints, experiences of pain, or inability to perform a daily function

Analysis & Clarification of Records — Once your records are collected and organized, the medico-legal experts at the Law Firm thoroughly analyze every line to find any significant entry pertaining to the issues important in determining your eligibility for SSD benefits and setting the amount of benefit payments.

Determining Your SSD Benefit Amount — The amount of your monthly benefit payment is determined by your average indexed monthly earnings (AIME) throughout your working life. Those figures need to be checked and double-checked to make sure you are credited with every day you worked. An error or omission in these calculations can produce a lower monthly payment than you deserve.

Trust your SSD or SSI benefits application only to a Certified Social Security Disability Law Specialist law firm like The Law Firm.

What to Avoid When You File an SSD or SSI claim

Every person eligible and qualified to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits should avoid proceeding without a professional SSD lawyer or a non-lawyer advocate.

We wish every applicant contacted the Law Firm to represent their SSD or SSI claim, but what we want more is to discourage you from trying to file or argue an SSD claim alone, without professional assistance. We believe our Law team of SSD experts is the best, but we respect your choice to hire others. But please, don’t trust your case to an amateur, or to any lawyer who is not experienced in SSD or SSI law.
