The Social Security Administration gets a lot of applications for SSI and SSDI, so the disability determination service examiner and the disability determination service physician have the job of weeding out most claims at the initial stage of the process, much like an insurance adjuster’s job is to reduce or deny your claim.
However, if you (and your disability attorney) provide substantial proof that you do have a disabling physical or mental condition, they have to approve your claim. The problem is that you’re disabled, either physically or mentally ill, and may not be up to the challenging job of providing the right kind of evidence. For one thing, you’re an amateur, and you are not feeling well or you wouldn’t need the help.
It’s kind of like trying to represent yourself in court. Sure, you have the right to, but most people wouldn’t want to try it. Most people hire a lawyer because there is too much riding on winning their case.
How Can a Disability Law Firm Help Me Win My Claim?
An experienced attorney knows the ropes. Your attorney would know exactly what type and how much documentation the SSA is looking for. Your attorney could:
- Listen to your story
- Review your medical and financial evidence
- Analyze what is missing from your paperwork
- Discuss your documentation needs with your physician(s)
- Help you to file your initial claim
- Help you appeal your claim, if necessary
- Represent you at the hearing before the administrative law judge, if necessary
Lawyers that help with disability claims have the experience in filing claims to know what kind of evidence and how much evidence to provide to the SSA. They know how to present a case persuasively before the ALJ and how to help you to accurately describe the problems you are experiencing that affect your daily ability to function. Statistics show that people who have experienced claim advocates working with them are far more likely to win their claim.
How Am I Supposed to Hire a Lawyer When I’m Broke and Cannot Work?
Isaacs & Isaacs disability claim lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. If we don’t win your claim, we don’t get paid.

We are confident that, if you have a valid claim, we can represent you before the SSA and provide the evidence they are looking for to grant you your disability payments.
