Why Use an Attorney?

Many people think that if they simply explain their situation to Social Security, someone there will understand and award them disability benefits.

Unfortunately, that's not the way it works.

The Social Security disability system involves thousands of rules, regulations, and procedures. You can be denied benefits if your doctor doesn't understand Social Security procedures or definitions, or if Social Security isn't given enough information about your condition. Your case can be dismissed if an appeal is not properly handled.

Do I really need an attorney to help me?

Technically, you can do every step of your disability claim on your own – without an attorney.

However, statistics show that claimants with an attorney have a much higher rate of success than those without representation.

Collecting, reviewing, and submitting hundreds – even thousands – of pages of evidence can be time-consuming and frustrating. Attorneys and their staff do this every single day. Let them do it for you too.

A hearing before a judge and vocational expert can be intimidating and confusing. An attorney can help you prepare and reduce some of the anxiety by letting you know what to expect.

Relying on yourself and the internet to prepare for your hearing can be risky. The attorneys at Stiller Disability Law have a combined 70+ years of experience researching the law and preparing legal arguments.
