How Our Disability Lawyers Help You Win SSD Benefits

The Help You Need.

The Benefits You Deserve.

If you're trying to win disability benefits, you're most likely struggling both physically and financially. The attorneys at Sackett and Associates are here to help you through the complicated Social Security Disability processes.

Filing an Application...

Applying for disability benefits is an overwhelming process. An application for Disability Insurance Benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) must be filed with the Social Security Administration. Many people are denied the first time, especially those who choose to act on their own without an attorney representing them. The staff at Sackett and Associates has the experience and know-how to not only make the application process go more smoothly, but to also increase your chances of winning.

We can help you apply online, by mail or in person. The earlier you get us involved, the better.


Appealing your Denial...

Don't give up! It is can be frustrating when you know you cannot work and your claim for disability is initially denied. The process to appeal can be long and tedious but success is possible. However, you have a limited amount of time to file for an appeal. It's important to call Sackett and Associates if your claim is denied.

A denial isn't the end of your claim. We know the process. We will file a Request for Reconsideration on your behalf. We'll help you prepare for your appeal hearing and we'll help you win.

If your Request for Reconsideration is denied, we can request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. If an Administrative Law Judge denied your case, we can present your case before the Appeals Council. Finally, it the Appeals Council denies your case, we have extensive experience successfully representing our clients in Federal Court.

If you have a Social Security hearing scheduled...

If Social Security has notified you of an upcoming hearing, it's very important to be prepared. You are strongly encouraged to get legal representation.

At Sackett and Associates, we've been helping people win Social Security Disability Benefits for 35 years. We'll use our knowledge and experience to:

  • understand your impairments
  • analyze your Social Security file
  • prepare your case
  • obtain important evidence such as medical records
  • prepare your testimony
  • make helpful legal arguments before and during the hearing
  • question witnesses
  • cross-examine any medical and/or vocational experts who testify at your hearing
  • file appeals in a timely manner
  • represent you at each stage of your claim

Attending your Social Security hearing alone is risky. At Sackett and Associates, your attorney will meet with you face-to-face before the hearing so we are best prepared to present your case.

What does it cost?

We will not charge you any fee, unless you win. The most we will ever charge is 25% of your past due benefits. We also ask that you reimburse our office for case expenses.

Se Habla Español

Many of our staff members are fluent in Spanish and are available to discuss your case with you in English or Spanish. Call our office today to discuss your case!
