Social Security Disability Attorney in Greenville, SC
If you’re living with a disability, you already have a lot to deal with. You need a disability attorney who will advocate for you and make your life easier, not harder. At McChesney and McChesney, we are specialized disability lawyers who will help you get the benefits that will improve your life.
Unfortunately, in the Greenville area and nationwide, hearing-level disability court judges are approving fewer cases. Although that is a disturbing fact, our lawyers at McChesney and McChesney have the needed experience to give you the best odds for approval. They have helped many people with disabilities who have been turned down at the initial and reconsideration levels, and we will help you as well in your fight for benefits.
We Help You Win Your Greenville Social Security Disability Case By:
- Comprehensively investigating and evaluating your medical history and case
- Collecting your medical records and tests (such as MRIs, X-rays, and EMGs) to prove the impact disability has on your day-to-day life
- Gathering written opinions from doctors and other vital sources for the SSD judge to review
- Looking for possible legal errors that a judge may have made, if your case was denied at the hearing level
- Carefully and accurately completing the necessary paperwork
- Meeting all deadlines along the way
- Appealing your denied Social Security case to the Appeals Council level or Federal District Court level, if needed
- Filing an additional disability claim if needed
How We Successfully File Your SSD Claim
Our Social Security disability attorneys use their years of experience so that your claim has the best opportunity for approval. Since many cases are denied on the first attempt, we also write up your case specifically so that it is more likely to be reversed if an appeal is necessary. With good legal representation, your case can be easily appealed with well-documented proof – and SSD judges know that. Our lawyers will provide the necessary proof and be your advocates at every stage of your disability claim. You will never be alone in this process.
For the best outcome in your Social Security disability claim, we recommend talking to our attorneys before filing any paperwork. Losing your case because it wasn’t filed correctly only results in delays in getting your much-needed benefits.
Our satellite office is conveniently located at 505 A North Main St. in Mauldin. However, if you want to start the process on your own, you can file a claim at the Social Security Administration office at 319 Pelham Road in Greenville.
