How a North Carolina Social Security Attorney Can Help:

  1. Tackling Bureaucracy — There can be a lot of paperwork involved in a Social Security Disability claim. Qualified attorneys can help ensure that all regulations are followed and that no paperwork is overlooked or deadlines are missed.

  2. Freeing Your Time — It is difficult to adjust to life with a new illness, injury or disability. An attorney can focus on the legal aspects of your situation, freeing you to focus on healing — physically and emotionally.

  3. Highlighting Information — An attorney who is certified by the North Carolina State Bar as a Board Certified Specialist in Social Security Disability Law can highlight the most critical aspects of a case — which might increase an applicant's chance of success at the earliest stage possible. This is important because it typically takes less time for an application to be reviewed at the earlier stages of the process. For example, it takes, on average, three to five months to get an answer about the initial application, but more than a year to gain a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge.

  4. Providing Courtroom Experience — It will be very difficult for an applicant with no legal experience to understand the best way to gather and index medical records, question witnesses and interpret the complex rules and regulations that govern both a court of law and the various Social Security programs.

  5. Increasing Odds of Success — Statistically, claimants who employ an attorney to represent them are much more likely to win at the hearing stage than those who do not employ an attorney to represent them. (Source: National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives)
