If you’re applying to get Social Security Disability Insurance, you need a lawyer specialized in handling such cases. A Social Security attorney will help you keep track of important documents, keep a timeline for your application process, and help you prepare the best case possible. This video explains how you can find a reputable SSDI lawyer.
The first thing you need to do is look at the lawyer’s experience. You want someone with plenty of years handling SSDI cases. Inexperienced lawyers or lawyers who don’t specialize in SSDI won’t be able to give you the best results. They simply lack the practical knowledge and understanding of the application process.
You need a lawyer who you’re comfortable with. Make sure they respond to you in a timely and appropriate manner. You don’t want to be another name on a docket; you want to be a valued client. Meet with them for a free initial consultation to get a gut feeling. The SSDI application is a long process, so you need to make sure you’re totally comfortable with your attorney.
Ask your family and friends for referrals. If they don’t know an SSDI attorney specifically, they may know another lawyer who can point you in the right direction. For more information, watch the video in the link above.
