Documentation from the Social Security Disability Administration, including forms on the website www.ssd.gov, may make the claims process sound straightforward and simple.
In 1998, President Bill Clinton wrote in a memorandum issued by the White House, “The Federal Government’s writing must be in plain language.” As other government agencies do, the Social Security Administration aims to communicate clearly through ordinary language to explain policies and processes.
Although the language is plain to understand, the Social Security Disability process is not necessarily transparent. For one thing, a great majority of applications for Social Security Disability benefits are denied. Applying for disability benefits is no guarantee that you will receive them, even if your case is valid.
At this point, many claimants who believe that they have a strong case seek out the help of a Charlotte social security disability lawyer. Our team represents North Carolinians through the appeals process.
If you are represented by our firm you will know us and we will know you by name. Our clients deal directly with our attorneys and dedicated staff throughout the process leading up to administrative hearings. (In contrast, clients represented by out-of-town Social Security Disability law firms often do not meet their attorneys until 15 minutes before these all-important hearings.)
After the denial, we help prepare detailed, persuasive documentation to present together with our clients before an administrative judge at an appeals hearing.
We believe that our law firm stands out among Social Security Disability law firms in this area for a number of reasons. Meticulous preparation, trusting relationships and a firm foundation in Social Security Disability law strengthen our clients’ cases.
