Social Security Law Practice

Social Security Law PracticeAcross the country there are thousands of attorneys in Social Security law practices. Just in North Carolina,  there are hundreds. How do you choose the right one for you?

I think first of all that you need to look at a Social Security law practice that is headquartered in your state. The Charles T. Hall Law Firm is based in North Carolina. Why would you want a New York or California based Social Security law practice to represent you if you live in North Carolina? We know the people of NC. We know the local judges. We know the local medical providers.

Second, you have to make sure that you are looking at a Social Security law practice — that is a lawyer or lawyers. There are a lot of Social Security “advocates” out there who are not attorneys. It’s going to be the same fee. Why would you want to hire a non-lawyer to represent you if you can have a lawyer for the same price?

Third, you have to look at the experience of the Social Security law practice. I have been representing Social Security claimants since 1979. I have five other lawyers working with me and we all do essentially nothing but represent Social Security claimants. Would you rather have someone representing you who tries to mix Social Security with workers compensation and personal injury?

Fourth, make sure that the Social Security law practice that represents you will be meeting with you in person fairly soon after you hire them. Why would you want someone representing you who does not want to waste their precious time actually meeting with you?
