However, it does not have to be. Hiring the right lawyer to help is key.

Helping You File
If you need help filing for benefits and are unsure where to begin, we can help you:

- Gather all supporting medical records and requisite documentation
- Contact your physicians and medical providers
Representing You Throughout Your SSD Appeal
If you have already filed and have received notification that your request for benefits has been denied, rest assured, this is not the end of the road. There are options available. You can appeal.
We can help you file what’s referred to as a request for consideration, the first step in the appeals process that essentially asks the SSA to re-examine the facts of your case. If the request is denied, we can request a hearing where you present your case in front of a judge.
