Social Security


Do I Have a Case?

Social Security Disability is defined as the inability to maintain gainful employment due to a physical or mental condition which is expected to last 12 months or longer.

Can a Lawyer Help?

You should initially apply for Social Security Disability on your own.  Because the initial process involves the completion of a simple application, a lawyer is not necessary at this initial step.  The reality is that in Wisconsin, nearly 67% of all applications are denied.  After a denial, you should immediately apply for reconsideration.  The reconsideration success rate is also -- less than 20%.  If your reconsideration has been denied, it is time to hire a lawyer.

Following reconsideration, you can request a hearing.  Once a hearing is requested, there are timelines that need to be heeded.
