SSI Disability Lawyers

There are many SSI disability lawyers. If you have an SSI disability claim or want to file one, you need to find the right lawyer or group of lawyers for you. It’s not easy. There are a lot of people out there trying to get your business. Here are some things you can consider when looking at SSI disability lawyers:

  • First, will you be represented by a lawyer? You’re going to pay the same fee whether it’s a lawyer or a non-lawyer. Get your money’s worth. Hire a lawyer. If you see an ad for someone representing Social Security claimants and you see the word “advocate” or you don’t see the word “attorney” or the word “lawyer” you’re not seeing an ad for a lawyer.
  • Does the lawyer just do Social Security work or does he or she also do other types of legal work?
  • How much Social Security experience does the lawyer or the firm that he or she works for have?
  • Where is the lawyer located?
  • When will you get to meet the lawyer for the first time?
  • Will the same lawyer represent you all along or will you be shifted among lawyers?

SSI disability lawyers are not all the same. Ask some questions and make sure you get someone you can trust and work with.
