You’re struggling with your disability and you’re unemployed—how can you afford to pay a lawyer to pursue your claim for disability benefits?

You’ll meet with a Social Security Disability lawyer, who will be your lawyer from beginning to end—you’ll pay no fee unless your lawyer wins your case. You’ll always be represented by the same lawyer, who will build and maintain a relationship with you over the time it takes to resolve your claim for disability benefits.

Your lawyer will help you understand your situation, and will determine your eligibility for benefits. We meet with you multiple times before your disability hearing, we meet with you on the day of your hearing before it begins, and we represent you during the hearing.

We have 19 years of combined experience in Social Security Disability cases; thus we have the capability and understanding to provide the guidance and support you need.

Disability Claim Process

Did you know that most disability claims have to go to a disability hearing before a social security judge?

We can represent you throughout the Disability Claim Process. We can evaluate your eligibility for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, and we can represent you at disability hearings and appeals.

Disability Claim Levels

  • Initial Application Level

You file an initial application and supporting documents with the Social Security Administration.

  • Reconsideration Level

Within 60 days of receiving your denial letter, you must file a request for reconsideration of your case. Reconsideration is taking a second look at the disability claim, reviewing it for the second time and issuing a new decision.

  • Hearing Level

If your claim is denied after reconsideration, then your case has to be heard before a Social Security Judge who reviews the evidence and decides your case.

Your application for Social Security Disability Benefits has been denied. Do you know what to do next?

Working with a Foley & Wilson lawyer, you’ll have legal representation and guidance when applying for Social Security Disability benefits and appealing denied claims.

What does this mean for you? It means that you’ll be with a lawyer who will represent you throughout the process—a lawyer who knows you and who understands what you are facing, a familiar face and a reassuring presence.

  • Appeals Process

What do I do if I lose at a disability hearing; how do I appeal?

Even if you lose at a disability hearing, it does not mean that you should give up.

Your Foley & Wilson Social Security Disability lawyer can represent you during your appeal. The Appeals Process goes through two levels:

  • Appeals Council Level

An appeal is filed and the decisions of the Social Security Judges are reviewed by the Social Security Administration Appeals Council. At that time, your lawyer will present legal arguments to support your appeal and to challenge the Judge’s denial.

  • Federal Court Level

If the Appeals Council approves the denial, then your lawyer can file a law suit in Federal Court against the Social Security Administration—only lawyers can file in Federal Court. The Federal Court will review the denial and decide whether to send your case back for an additional hearing.
