We assist clients in “putting their best foot forward” on the initial application. Our disability lawyers are well-versed in Social Security’s strict eligibility requirements and can help you avoid the common pitfalls of submitting a benefits claim. When you consult with us, we will handle all the details of your claim and remove the stress from the process. While dealing with the government can make you feel like a number, your claim will be our priority. Above all, we will always put your best interests first and treat you with the dignity and respect you deserve.
At the hearing, we will explain to the administrative law judge (ALJ) our “theory of the case” and why you should be approved for benefits. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we have experience appearing before almost every ALJ in the Utah. Our attorneys have a solid reputation for integrity and legal knowledge before these judges.
Process Of Applying
To obtain disability benefits, you must submit an application with a local Social Security Administration (SSA) field office by mail, online, or in person. The application must include the following personal information:
Social Security Number
- Birth certificate
- Contact information of doctors
- Names and dosages of prescription medications
- Detailed work history
Additionally, the application contains questionnaires about your educational background and work experience, as well as the limitations your condition imposes on daily activities. Finally, your claim must include medical evidence demonstrating that (1) you have a qualifying medical condition and (2) your impairment is severe enough to prevent you from working.
It is critically important that your application be accurate and thorough. If there are mistakes or omissions, your claim will be denied. By working with our experienced disability lawyers, you will have peace of mind in knowing that your benefits claim will be properly handled.
No Fees Until We Win!
Everyone I came into contact with at acadia was extremely knowledgeable. They walked me through the entire process – always with great professionalism and efficiency. I also felt that they stayed on top of my case and were always doing everything they could to move it forward.
Of course going through the process of filling for disability and dealing with social security, medical records and such is nothing but stressful and confusing. Every time I had a question or problem someone answered my call and was there to help me.
I am so pleased with the professionalism of this office. I tried another law firm and they were extremely rude. A family member recommended I give you a call and I’m glad I did. Acadia Disability Law Group personally helped me through the process of applying for my disability claim, and ultimately we won my case at the hearing level.
