First, health problems sidelined you from work. You applied for Social Security Disability benefits to get financial relief. But then you were denied.
A Social Security Disability lawyer can help you appeal that denial—and finally win benefits.
In fact, one government study found that people who had representatives with them in their disability appeals hearings are almost three times more likely to be approved.
But your financial future, your stability, your peace and happiness are on the line.
With medical conditions and money worries, this situation is highly personal.

When you’re looking for a Social Security Disability appeals lawyer, it can help to look at reviews from their past clients and details of their education, experience and professional involvement.
Look for these qualities:
The Becker Law Office has helped thousands of people in Wisconsin win disability benefits. And it has focused intensely on this kind of law. For years we said: Disability Law Is All We Do.
You can start out with our disability attorneys by talking to us for a free consultation about your case.
You’re not required to have a lawyer for a Social Security Disability claim, but it could be best if you get one.
Especially when you’ve been denied for benefits and you’re appealing the decision, the process gets much more complicated than when you first applied.
Your lawyer takes on the burden of your claim for you, so you can focus on your own well-being.
A lawyer does all of this and more for you:
When you reach a hearing with a disability judge, your application for disability benefits becomes more like a legal case. And it gets more intense from there if you ask for a Social Security Appeals Council review, or you take your case to federal court.
In fact, in federal court, you will be required to have a lawyer registered to practice in that court.
But no matter where you are in the process, a primary reason to work with a disability lawyer is so you won’t be alone.
Your lawyer can provide the personal attention you deserve at a difficult time in your life and when you’re trying to navigate a system that can be impersonal.
If you’ve been denied disability benefits, and you want another chance at assistance that can make your life easier, reach out to us at Becker Law.
