Social Security Law

Social Security is a public programs designed to provide income and services to individuals in the event of retirement, sickness, disability, death, or unemployment. In the United States, the term social security refers specifically to the programs established in 1935 under the Social Security Act. In particular, it refers to the social insurance of that act, which uses contributions made by workers and employers to provide income to people and their families during retirement or in the case of involuntary unemployment, disability, or death. Statistically, your application will be denied. If and when your disability application is denied, social security will send you a letter which explains the reason for the denial and how to request a review of their decision. Depending on the reason, you may be able to request an appeal. It is at this point that we highly encourage you to seek representation with our office. We will request an appeal and prepare your case for the administrative hearing. The attorneys are paid from your ‘back pay’ and will not require a retainer. Please contact our office to schedule your appointment today. For more information on social security, please visit
