Across the country, the majority of Social Security related claims are denied during their first application. It’s a long and complicated process, often slowed down by various hoops and obstacles confusing to most applicants. Having an attorney by your side helps you navigate the world of claims for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSID) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) better and more thoughtfully. An attorney can guide you away from common application mistakes that often lead to denial. Time is of the essence for Social Security matters and our attorneys will make your experience smoother, less disheartening, and have a greater chance for success.


There are four different types of Social Security Disability you can claim for: Physical, Mental, Workers over 50, and Children’s Supplemental Security Income. Each comes with its own qualifications and specifications unique to its category. To make sure you are building a case for the correct disability category, our attorneys can help guide you through the process of deciding where your specific needs and history line up with the possibilities of claims and the benefits possible from each one.


The hearing and appeals process can be a long, tough road. It is extremely important you have a steady knowledge of where your case is taking you and the possible results that can come from it. Having an aiding attorney acting as a mentor, guide, and champion, you’ll be able to maneuver through the process as steady as possible. As for the basics, you can complete the initial application process with or without guidance. Moving forward through appeals is where our attorneys can assist. In Columbus, there are four steps to the disabilities’ appeals process: the application, first appeal (the reconsideration), second appeal (the Social Security Disability hearing), and the third appeal (an Appeals Council review).
