Now More Than Ever You Need To Hire Local

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Mar 02, 2017 | 0 Comments

As we have seen in recent blog posts, Social Security has made significant changes in the way they will process applications for

disability benefits. The result of these changes, in my opinion, will be to make it harder for claimants to get approved. This means that your appointed representative is going to have to work harder for you. For this reason, along with many others, it is vital that you hire someone local to represent you.

The New Rules Are Aimed At Abuses By National Firms

Some of the new rules are aimed specifically at those national firms that troll the internet, luring in people who are trying to get disability benefits. The 5-Day rule, for example, was instituted in large part to address the fact that so many of these multi-state firms are not getting medical records into Social Security in time for hearings. If a company has claimants in all of the 50 states, they are going to struggle to keep up with ordering and providing medical records.  These firms won't know who the local doctors and hospitals are, leading to errors.  

Doing Work In Bulk Means Skimping On Quality

Hard To Find, Worth The Search

So many of these national outfits can do disability claims on a massive scale because they put so little effort into trying to get their clients approved. The new rules, however, are going to make handling Social Security disability claims in bulk much harder.  I would not be surprised to see more of these places go the way of Bender and Bender. That firm, as you recall, simply went under and left their clients with no representation.  The first thing they did as they began to fail? Stop ordering medical records.

Don't Be Fooled By Impressive Internet Ads

You don't have to hire me. But if not me, please contact one of the many fine local attorneys in Southern Arizona. Don't get fooled by some company in Miami or New York City just because they can paste advertisements all over the internet.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
