Please contact our Chicago Social Security Disability law firm online today, or call 847-299-0008 to schedule a free initial consultation.

We work on a contingency fee basis as approved by the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Significant SSDI And SSI Experience On Your Side

We are familiar with the process and have the necessary skills to successfully advocate on your behalf. If you have hesitated to obtain legal counsel to help you file your Social Security Disability claim because you can’t afford the fees, then hesitate no longer!

In Social Security Disability cases, attorneys’ fees are regulated by federal statute and are paid only when you get paid. We work on a contingency fee basis — that means no money up front, and no hourly fees. The Social Security Administration must approve our fees, and we file our fee agreement with SSA in every case.

How Do I File For Social Security Disability?

There are a number of ways to start a Social Security Disability claim. You can contact our law firm for a free brochure describing the application process. If your claim is only for SSDI, you can file on the Social Security Administration’s website at www.ssa.gov. If your claim is for both SSDI and SSI or for SSI only, you must either go to your local Social Security District Office or call SSA at 800-772-1213.

Our lawyers prefer to be retained as soon as you have filed your application. Statistics show that people with quality representation have a greater chance of having their applications approved. Our experience shows that the earlier in the process we get involved, the stronger the claim.

We urge you to contact us online or call 847-299-0008 now because the backlogs are lengthy at all levels of the application and review process. The severity of the backlog varies nationwide. While the Social Security Administration is working on this problem, it can easily take as long as 18 months to go from initial application to an administrative law judge hearing. Time is of the essence if you are to receive benefits.
