Kansas City Social Security disability lawyer provides personal service

The Social Security Administration is very large, and can be a faceless bureaucracy. For example, your application for disability benefits is passed along to a claims examiner who will make a decision about your eligibility for disability benefits without seeing or talking to you.

To work through this process you want a disability lawyer who cares about you and gives you personal attention. What you don’t need is a large bureaucratic law firm that is almost as cold and distant as the Social Security Administration.

I care about my clients, and I am passionate about helping people who are unable to work because of a disability. I see part of my job as being to help provide some of the personal attention that is absent in the Social Security Administration disability process. I also have the skill and experience with disability claims to help you get you best results we can with the Social Security Administration.

How can you tell whether you qualify for disability benefits?

Many of my Kansas and Missouri Social Security disability clients what to know right away whether they will qualify for disability benefits if they apply.

Answering this can be more difficult than it might seem because the Social Security Administration goes through a detailed and complicated analysis process. However, the following two questions can give a quick and simple answer to the question of whether it is worth it to apply for disability benefits:

  • Are you unable to work as a result of a disability?
  • Is this disability expected to last for 12 months (or has it already lasted that long)?

If you answer “yes” to these questions then you should apply for disability benefits.

What if your application for disability benefits is denied?

Don’t give up!

The truth is that most disability applications are denied. Some people then make the mistake of giving up. However, it is important to appeal a denial because the percentage of success on appeal is much better than on the original application.

If your disability application has been denied, call or email me today for help, and I will get you back on track with an appeal.

Let me work on your Kansas or Missouri Social Security disability claim

The procedures and regulations of the Social Security administration can be confusing and frustrating if you are not used to them. It can take patience, and the experienced and skilled assistance from a disability lawyer.

If you are not already represented by a Missouri or Kansas Social Security disability lawyer, give me a brief description of your claim using the form to the right and I will respond promptly. Or you may contact me.
