Welcome! This site is written for Social Security disability claimants, for their legal representatives, and for the network of people involved in the Social Security disability claim process. I hope you find it helpful.

When I first talk with prospective clients, there is often some confusion about the benefits of having an attorney's help with their disability claim. Obviously, I believe that disability claimants are much better off with an experienced Social Security lawyer overseeing their claim, but I sometimes need to explain why to prospective clients.

I have added a page to my Maine Social Security lawyer website to address the issue. The new page discusses 7 ways that a Social Security lawyer can help. They are: 

  1. Develop a winning theory for your claim.
  2. Obtain the necessary evidence.
  3. Keep your claim moving.
  4. Help you tell your story.
  5. Represent you at the hearing.
  6. Ensure that you are paid correctly.
  7. Be your guide.

Check out the how a lawyer can help page for an explanation of each. I think it is a good list. Any thoughts on items that might be added?
