Social Security & SSI Disability

ARE SICK OR INJURED AND UNABLE TO WORK?

If you worked for a U.S. employer and paid Social Security taxes for five of the last 10 years, you might be eligible for Social Security Disability. If you did not, you may be eligible for SSI.  Some people are eligible for both.

Both of these programs provide you with money every month to live on and medical insurance.

HOW WE CAN HELP

We Can Apply You For Benefits

Haven't applied for benefits yet? We can do your initial application and be there with you at every step of

the process. We prefer this, because you want to put the best claim forward, making sure everything is complete and correct. We want that, too.

We won't make you do your initial application by yourself or send you alone to the Social Security office. Our experienced legal team will be by your side from the beginning actively working on you case. After all you don't want to lose your case, and we don't either.

We Can Appeal Your Denial

Did you get turned down? Even after a hearing?

We can help! Let us appeal your denial and work on getting you approved for benefits. Do not give up! It is harder to win your case if you reapply, then if you appeal the denial. 

There are a total of up to six possible appeals, including four appeals after your first hearing before a Social Security  judge. You can come to us at any step in the process. 

We Provide Attorney Representation at Every Step

Have you applied or appealed, but now want help? We can step in at any time. Our attorneys can represent you at any stage, from the initial application up to an appeal before the U.S. Supreme Court, if necessary.

THERE IS NO ATTORNEY FEE, UNTIL WE WIN

We only get paid if we win. We collect either $6,000 or 25% of your back pay (the amount you should have been paid by the Social Security Administration up until the date your case is approved), whichever is LESS. Unlike many other law firms, we know the high cost of living out here in the Pacific, so we do not charge you for our costs, including the cost of our travel. That means YOU keep at least 75% of your back pay plus ALL the monthly benefits you are paid after we win.

For appeals before the federal courts, our goal is to recoup any attorney fees directly from the Social Security Administration. These appeals are often necessary if you are turned down at your hearing. If we are only able to recoup less than 25% of your back pay, we will ask that you make up the difference out of your back pay. However this means at least 75% of your back pay and all of your monthly benefits going forward are still yours to keep.
