Criminal Defense & Social Security Disability Law

When Is It Necessary To Hire An SSDI Lawyer?

Filing for and receiving Social Security benefits or Supplemental Security Income benefits should not be a complicated process. It is, after all, your money that you have paid out of your paycheck for years or decades. It is not uncommon, however, for individuals to be denied their benefits at the initial application stage. When this happens, it is wise to have an experienced attorney on your side.

At Lawrence, Smith and Gardner, we have extensive experience providing legal advice and representation to clients throughout Virginia. Many individuals ask, “When should I hire a lawyer?” In short, the earlier the better. An experienced attorney can carefully examine your situation and give you an honest assessment of what obstacles you might face.

Our knowledge of the law and our experience in a wide range of Social Security Disability matters allow us to properly guide our clients through even the most complex issues.

When To Contact A Lawyer

It is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced attorney at the beginning of your case. If you choose to discuss your case before you file, you can gain a clear understanding of the process and any hazards you might face. If your application for benefits is denied, we can appropriately gauge our level of involvement. Most often, we become personally involved if there is a denial of benefits at the second stage of the process. Rest assured, however, we are prepared to answer any questions you might have.
