Lawrence Social Security Disability
When the economy is down, finding any kind of steady work can be extremely difficult. For people who live with a serious physical or emotional impairment, it is almost impossible. When such an impairment keeps you out of the workforce, your only option may be to apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
SSD benefits are not approved automatically. In fact, nearly 90 percent of all initial applications are denied by the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you have applied for benefits and been denied, you should discuss your case with a law firm that has experience with these matters and can help you secure the benefits you deserve.

In order to be approved for SSD benefits, you must have a qualifying physical disability or mental disorder that is expected to impact your ability to work for at least a year or be diagnosed with a qualifying condition that is considered fatal. Our attorneys provide a thorough review of your situation and give you honest feedback with regard to the viability of your claim.
We can help you with any aspect of your SSD claim, including the following:
- Assembling medical records and other documentation needed to request benefits
- Filing the initial claim with the SSA
- Requesting a reconsideration if the initial request is denied
- Representing clients in the appeals process if required
