Social Security

An attorney can be very helpful in navigating the complex Social Security system to ensure that deadlines are met and that Social Security has all of the relevant information needed for them to make a determination regarding a disability benefits application.

Do you know someone who is unable to work and support themselves due to their Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or other developmental disability diagnosis?

Many people are unaware that a person diagnosed with ASD or other developmental disability may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits like Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Which benefit a claimant may be eligible largely depends on the claimant’s assets, income, and work history. Social Security, however, does not count certain assets against a claimant, including money in ABLE Accounts and assets in Special or Supplemental Needs Trusts. 

We can walk you through the steps for gathering the necessary information and documentation needed to apply for Social Security disability benefits.

Complete and submit an application for the claimant, apply for reconsideration if the application is denied at the initial stage, and represent the claimant at an appeal hearing in the event that the application is denied following reconsideration. There is no charge to meet or speak with our attorneys regarding your Social Security disability case. If you decide to retain us for your Social Security application, and we decide to accept your case, we enter into a contingent fee agreement, where we only get paid if the application for benefits is successful and benefits will be paid. This fee agreement is regulated by Social Security and is equal to 25% of any back benefits owed to the disability claimant, up to a maximum fee of $6,000.
