Why Do I Need an Attorney?

Legal Help for a Long, Frustrating Process

Do you need a lawyer to apply for Social Security Disability? No.

Do you need a lawyer to win benefits? For many people, yes.

Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are governed by complex rules and strict standards. About 75 percent of people are turned down on the initial application, even people with severe physical or mental impairments.

A Marathon, Not a Sprint

Most people do not get approved for disability benefits until the hearing level. In Pennsylvania, you likely will not get a hearing until 12 months after your initial claim is denied. In New Jersey and Delaware, the waiting list is even longer.

If you can maintain your situation and continue to get treatment for your disabling condition, we will make sure that your records are up to date and complete when your case goes to the judge. Our firm has a very good success rate in SSD appeals.

At Martin Law, we don’t “dabble” in Social Security Disability. Our focused knowledge of the law and the process enables us to put our clients in the best position to win benefits. Our personal attention and follow-up gives clients hope and guidance during the many anxious months of waiting.
