Do I Need A Lawyer When Applying For SSDI?

These days, it seems like you can find the answers to everything online. Whether you're looking for home improvement videos or do-it-yourself legal forms, you can probably find it online. But what are you losing by doing the work yourself?

With some legal matters — like applying for Social Security benefits — you won't save money by trying to work through the process yourself. Moreover, you could ruin your opportunity to receive the benefits you need by making mistakes on the application or the timeline.

At the North Bay Disability Law Group, we help individuals in Santa Rosa, San Rafael and throughout Northern California receive the benefits they need.

What Are The Benefits Of Working With An SSDI Attorney?

Experienced lawyers are trained to use all the information they have available to build strong cases. As soon as you contact a lawyer, he or she should begin developing your case. Because we have experience helping other people through the process, it's unlikely that we'll make a mistake on the application or miss a deadline.

Plus, if your initial application is denied, it's absolutely critical to work with an experienced lawyer. The appeals process is full of judicial procedure. Cases are influenced by rules, evidence and cross-examination. If you don't know what you're doing, it can be easy to make mistakes at every turn in the process, especially as it gets more complicated.

Our firm's founding attorney — Brian Barboza — became a lawyer so he could help people. The individuals at our firm are trained advocates, and they are here to help people like you find the solutions you need and help you file SSDI claims.
