We Don't Take Every Disability Case

Let me be brutally honest. Not everyone who contacts us about a Social Security disability claim has a realistic chance of being approved by Social Security. We don’t take every Social Security disability case. We take only the ones that seem to us to have a realistic chance of being approved.

This is essential for us. If we took the case of everyone who contacted us, we would be overwhelmed with hopeless cases and could not stay in business.

The good thing about this is that if we take on your case, you know that someone who knows something about Social Security thinks you have a realistic chance of being approved. This doesn’t guarantee that you’ll win but it does mean that you’re not just wasting your time.

The bad thing about this is that our evaluations of what cases have a realistic chance of being approved is not perfect. If we don’t want your case, it’s not a good sign but you shouldn’t treat it as the end of the road. Talk with another attorney. You may have to talk to two or three others but the odds are that you’ll eventually find one to help you.

For that matter, if some other attorney has turned you away, call us. We’ll be happy to talk with you. Even if some other attorney originally took your case and later turned you away (and that’s something we rarely do), call us. I’ve scratched my head over plenty of strong cases that I know some other attorney didn’t want.  Sometimes,  I cannot see why that other attorney didn’t want the case.
