Hiring the Best Social Security Lawyers in Anaheim –
Finding a Lawyer for an Anaheim Social Security Case
A Social Security Disability applicant is not required to hire a lawyer to represent them in a Social Security Disability case. Recent studies show, though, that SSDI applicants using an attorney have a far greater likelihood of approval for Social Security. Having an attorney in your SSDI case is especially important at the hearing level – where having legal counsel can substantially increase your odds of collecting the maximum benefits.
If you are injured, ill or disabled and you are thinking about hiring a lawyer for your Anaheim Social Security Disability case, here are some important factors to help you select the best SSDI attorney for your case.
What to Look for in an Anaheim Social Security Lawyer
Hire a Lawyer Who Offers a Free Consultation & Answers Your Questions For Your Anaheim Social Security Case
Social Security Disability attorneys should not charge an SSDI claimant for the initial consultation. The lawyer you are interviewing should also devote enough time to the consultation to carefully explain your options and address your concerns. He or she should always take as much time as necessary to completely answer all of your questions about your case.
Our compassionate and experienced lawyers offer a free consultation to clients in any Social Security Disability case. At the law firm of Cantrell Green, our lawyers care about every disability client – and have dedicated their careers to representing disabled individuals. We guarantee to listen to your concerns and patiently answer any questions you may have.
Hire a Lawyer Who Only Collects Attorney Fees if You Win
Your Anaheim Social Security Case
The laws governing Social Security determine how much SSDI lawyers can charge in a case. An attorney is only allowed to collect a fee equal to 25% of the “back pay” (i.e., the past due amount) collected by their client – up to a maximum of $6,000. And, in situations where no past due benefits are awarded to the claimant, the lawyer does collect a fee.
Always ensure that your SSDI attorney only charges you the fees that are allowed by Social Security regulation. If an attorney whom you interview tries to collect more than this amount, they are acting unethically should not be hired.
Hire a Lawyer Who Handles Only Disability Cases
For Your Anaheim Social Security Case
A lot of lawyers say they are Social Security lawyers, when actually they are “general practice” lawyers who take a variety of cases. At Cantrell Green, we believe that to be the best Social Security law firm, lawyers should only handle disability cases – and not handle criminal defense, bankruptcy, probate or other types of cases.
Social Security benefits are determined by a huge and complex set of laws and regulations. SSDI laws also change regularly. Only lawyers who commit their entire legal practice to disability law will be able to keep up with all the latest SSDI regulations – and ensure that every applicant gets the maximum benefits they deserve in their Anaheim Social Security Case.
