Social Security Disability Lawyers vs. Advocates

Social Security Lawyers vs. Social Security Advocates-

In this article our Anaheim area lawyers explain the difference between Social Security Disability Lawyers & Social Security Disability Advocates.

Most people do not realize that many of the Social Security Disability “firms” that they see advertising on TV and the sides of buses are “advocates,” and are NOT lawyers or law firms. So it is important to be careful and informed when choosing a “firm” to assist you in collecting or appealing your Social Security Disability benefits.

What Is a Social Security Advocate?

“Advocates” have not gone to law school, and they are not licensed attorneys. Advocates are also not licensed by the California Bar Association like true Social Security Disability lawyers are. Advocates are just lay people who speak for you in court.

Social Security lawyers have gone to law school and have at least 2 college degrees. They have studied the law and passed the California Bar Exam. They are also supervised and accountable to the State Bar Association.

Additionally, since Advocates are not lawyers, they cannot appeal your case in federal court if necessary. However, lawyers CAN appear in any Court on your behalf.

Are Social Security Advocates Cheaper than Lawyers?

No! Social Security Disability Lawyer and Advocate fees are set by the Court – and are the same. Stated another way, non-lawyer “advocates” will cost you the same amount as an attorney when representing you – but have less education and qualifications than a real lawyer!

As experienced Social Security lawyers, we wonder why someone pay a “non-attorney” to handle their Social Security case when they could hire an experienced and specialized disability lawyer for the exact same fee!

If you hire the disability lawyers at the law firm of Cantrell Green you will be represented by a specialized Social Security Disability lawyer, located in the Los Angeles / Anaheim area – NEVER an advocate.
