How We Can Help You

Share

Have you thought about filing for disability?

Have you filed recently and received a denial?

Have you worked at least 10 years in your life?

Filing a successful disability income claim can be a challenging process, especially without the right legal representation. According to the SSA’s published database*, from January 2014 to June 2015, disability applications were denied on average 67.532%* – that is almost 7 out of 10!

According to a recent article on Nolo.com it was said, “the most important reason to hire an attorney to help with your disability case is that your chances of being approved are significantly increased. While it’s certainly true that some people who apply on their own are approved for benefits, statistics show that, everything else being equal, Social Security is more likely to approve an applicant who’s represented by legal counsel than one who isn’t.”

AJM Disability Advocates has the experience and training to help you with:

Filing Your Disability Claim

Presenting Your Claim in the Most Favorable Manner
