Maryland Social Security Disability Lawyers
Help When You Need It Most
If you have an injury or illness that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to monthly disability payments from the Social Security Administration. Tens of thousands of Americans apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) every year. Unfortunately, more than half of these claims are denied. Our Social Security disability lawyers at LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton understand that these benefits can be a financial lifeline for those who cannot work because of a disability. That is why we dedicate ourselves to helping individuals and families struggling to get the financial support they need.
Obtaining benefits or appealing a denial can be a difficult and frustrating process without the assistance of qualified legal representation. At LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton, our Maryland Social Security disability lawyers will provide you with the information and resources you need to improve your chances of having your application approved sooner. Don’t delay – contact us immediately if your Social Security disability benefits have been denied.
At our very first meeting, we will review your case and answer your questions so that you understand that you now have a zealous advocate. Some of the questions we will answer include how the Social Security disability system works, what types of health conditions are covered and what benefits you may be qualified to receive. We hope that the information we provide during this first meeting will prepare you for the appeal process and give you confidence in knowing that you have a zealous advocate on your side who will fight hard to get you the benefits you deserve.
Coming to terms with the fact you are unable to work can be humbling, but it doesn’t have to rob you of your dignity. At LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton, our clients are always treated with the utmost care and respect. We build personal and lasting relationships with our clients based on trust and confidence in our abilities.
In addition to sharing our knowledge and experience of successfully handling Social Security disability claims in Maryland, our attorneys can:
- Help with gathering necessary documents. To determine your eligibility, the Social Security Administration considers such factors as your medical condition, your age, your education and your past work experience. It is essential that the information you provide to support your claim is accurate, complete and submitted on time. This can be a challenge when you are struggling with a physical or mental health condition. That is where we can step in to help.
- Monitor the progress of your case. The time during which you are waiting to find out if your claim has been approved can feel like an eternity. Our attorneys will work to keep your claim moving toward a favorable outcome by maintaining constant contact with the SSA.
- Review notices of denied Social Security claims. The vast majority of Social Security Disability claims are denied after the initial application has been filed. We will guide you during the Appeals process from Reconsideration through the hearing and even to the Appeals Council if necessary. We will work to correct any mistakes or misunderstandings that may have led to the denial of your claim.
