Being disabled and unable to work when you are 55 years or older is a terrifying situation. In addition to dealing with your disabling condition, you have to worry about paying your bills and surviving. This can leave you overwhelmed by pain and anxiety. No one who has worked most of his or her life should have to deal with such problems with retirement so near.
Social Security has special rules for those persons who are 55 and older. Knowing these rules and applying them correctly can make the difference between being denied and getting the Social Security disability benefits to which you are entitled. Because Social Security's regulations for those over 55 are complicated, you probably don't want to navigate them on your own.
If there is one thing I have learned in almost thirty years of practicing law, it is this: Don't go to court without a lawyer.
I am prepared to do whatever I can to ensure that you get your Social Security disability benefits. This is a long and complicated process and you owe it to yourself to do everything you can to get the benefits you are due.
Please call or email so we may discuss your claim. I will take the time to listen to you and evaluate your situation. Together, we can work towards getting your benefits.
PLEASE NOTE: I do not handle mental health cases. These are highly specialized and I do not take them on.
In the FAQ section of this website, I have included additional information about Social Security and hiring a lawyer to represent you. I hope this information is helpful.
I look forward to hearing from you.
