Right now you may be watching every penny. Your income has disappeared or has been substantially reduced because of your medical condition or injury. You are careful about what you spend and you are trying to cut costs. You may even consider trying to apply for Social Security disability benefits on your own instead of hiring an attorney to help you with the process.
However, applying for Social Security disability on your own can be risky. You may be denied benefits that you deserve because you make a mistake on your application or fail to provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) with complete information. If your application is denied you will have to decide whether you are going to live without the benefits, appeal the decision, or ask that the decision be reconsidered.
You Don’t Need This Stress
Instead, you can hire a Texas Social Security disability lawyer to help you even if you have limited funds with which to hire an attorney. Before you meet with a potential lawyer you should know that we:
- Provide free, no obligation consultations. We invite you to meet with us, free of charge, to determine whether we may be of assistance to you. We will answer your questions and help you decide what next steps to take.
- We only get paid if you recover benefits. If you do not get Social Security disability benefits then we do not get paid.
- Social Security disability lawyers have their fees regulated by the Social Security Administration. Thus, most lawyers charge about the same amount of money for their services.
We also offer useful information free of charge. You can start accessing this information now by reading our FREE Social Security Disability Fact Sheet and watching our free videos.
