Social Security Disability

Birk Law Firm has handled countless Social Security Disability cases.

We can take care of all the red tape that comes along with a Social Security disability case, from initial paperwork to gathering all the medical information, to the everyday correspondence.  We also handle Social Security Income (SSI) cases, sometimes referred to as “income only” cases. Let Birk Law Firm handle your social security claim and you take care of yourself.

No Fee If You Don’t Win

The Social Security Administration denies most claims, regardless of their merit. You need to make sure your rights are protected and that you receive the best settlement or award possible. Birk Law Firm will fight for your rights and obtain the best result possible. You don’t owe us any attorney fees unless and until we win your case.

You can use our expertise and experience to your benefit by hiring us to obtain the proper medical documentation, prepare your case, and represent you before the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA claim process can be very confusing. Birk Law Firm has evaluated and prepared hundreds of Social Security claims. We know how to navigate the Social Security process to obtain the greatest amount of benefits for you.

We can represent you from the start (the initial application) or with an appeal if you have been denied. In fact, we specialize in appealing decisions that have been denied. The appeal process involves appearing before a judge, so it is usually better to let us do that for you. We can take over your case from the point you were denied, and you can let us take it from there and take care of it for you. When appropriate, we can appeal all the way up to the U.S. District Courts.

Social Security and the Culture of Denial and Delay

More than two-thirds of all Social Security disability applicants were denied last year — over 1 million people denied — and most of them simply gave up after being turned down the first time. Given how many claims are ultimately approved, that means hundreds of thousands of Americans are not getting the benefits they paid for and deserve. It is all part of a culture of denial.

During the whole process the SSA delays, delays, delays. The denial itself creates a delay.  Then they usually make you wait more then a year for your appeal hearing.  We can’t make them hurry, but we do know a few techniques to get your hearing as soon as possible.

Birk Law Firm can help you with your Social Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits application or appeal if you have physical injuries or mental disabilities. While Social Security denies a lot of people who ultimately should be accepted, you do not have to go it alone, and you should not give up.
