Our approach is to help out early in disability cases

There may be a common perception among New Albany, Indiana, residents that you should always file for Social Security disability benefits on your own first and then go see a lawyer if and when the benefits application gets denied. What belies this approach is an attitude that there is only so much one can do at the early stages of an application for disability and that the real action happens once the case gets to hearing before an administrative law judge.

Especially since it can take months or even years to get a hearing in some parts of the country, our law office's approach to disability cases is a bit different. Specifically, we encourage prospective clients to contact us earlier on in the application process.

There really nothing in it for us when we encourage our clients to do this. We offer free initial consultations on disability cases, and, since we are paid on a contingency basis, we only get paid if our clients get benefits. Even then, we get a set percentage of the client's 'back pay" in exchange for our services.

What we do know from our decades of experience handling Social Security cases is that it can be easier to get benefits early on in the application process, without having to go through a series of appeals, if an attorney helps prepare the initial application. Although benefits still might get denied, which would make a hearing necessary, we have discovered that having someone who understands the ins and outs of disability law does at times make a difference.
