Social Security Disability Attorney in Spartanburg, SC
In the complicated process of obtaining disability benefits, our professional and experienced lawyers will give you a great advantage in the fight to access what you deserve. Our main headquarters in downtown Spartanburg is conveniently located, and our attorneys there will partner with you by learning about your disability, researching your medical files, and developing a strong case or appeal. The process to obtain SSD can be tedious, but having our lawyers help with the process will move it along more quickly. You can place your trust in the competent hands of McChesney and McChesney.
We Help You Win Your Spartanburg Social Security Disability Case By:
- Investigating and researching your unique medical case
- Learning what specific limitations you have
- Giving evidence in court for your physical and/or mental limitations using your doctor’s opinions, statements from other sources, and objective tests such as X-rays, MRIs, and EMGs
- Reviewing your previously-filed case if it was denied at the hearing level, searching for legal errors that an administrative law judge (ALJ) may have made
- Appealing your denied Social Security case to the Appeals Council level or Federal District Court level, if needed
How We Successfully File Your SSD Claim
The unfortunate fact is that most SSD claims are denied the first time they are filed. This creates a significant financial and emotional burden on people living with disabilities. You will have greater success if you hire a lawyer before filing the first time, or after you’ve been denied. Our attorneys at McChesney and McChesney are happy to talk with you about the process. We know the steps to take to increase your chances of winning and can develop a case that can more likely be reversed on appeal.
We handle these appeals for our own clients in the Spartanburg area and assist other lawyers with whom we join forces on denied claims. Other lawyers send us their cases because they know we are effective, trustworthy, and will go to bat for their clients.
Please call us to make an appointment. Appointments need to be made in advance, and we look forward to meeting with you and helping you with your disability case.
Although we believe your chances of success are greatly improved by having our lawyers work on your case, if you want to file a claim on your own the Spartanburg Social Security office is located at 1835 Assembly Street, Columbia, SC 29201 on the 11th floor of the Strom Thurmond Federal Building.
