Why Hire a Social Security Attorney

Why you should hire a local Social Security disability attorney to help with your claim

The pain, frustration and financial uncertainty that often come with a disability can be overwhelming to deal with on your own. Many disabled individuals worry about how they will be able to cope with their disability and how they will support themselves or their families. But you do not — and should not — have to face this difficult and distressing time on your own.

At Byron A. Lassiter & Associates, P.C., our Mobile, AL and Pensacola, FL Social Security lawyer and support team are here for you — to listen to your concerns, address your needs and offer our assistance. With more than 30 years of experience as a local lawyer, Byron Lassiter understands the Social Security system and what local judges are looking for during an appeal. Mr. Lassiter and our team work hard to guide you through the system to help you obtain the benefits you earned.

Why you need an attorney if your benefits are denied

Because the Social Security Administration (SSA) is overburdened by the number of applicants, it is quite common to receive a denial of disability benefits even if you are truly disabled. There are many reasons for denial:

  • Lack of medical evidence
  • Earnings or income
  • Problems regarding the date of disability
  • Problems regarding the date of insurance
  • Other issues

Understanding the reason why your application was denied is often a complex, but extremely important, issue. An experienced Mobile and Pensacola area Social Security attorney like Byron A. Lassiter can help you examine your application and notice of denial to determine whether you really are eligible for disability insurance benefits and why your application was denied. By determining what your claim is missing, we can help you gather the necessary evidence or witness testimony, including the testimony of medical and employment experts, to help you build a strong case to support your claim.

Complex appeals require knowledge and experience

The Social Security disability appeals process is highly complex and should not be handled without the help of an experienced Social Security attorney in your area who understands the complicated laws and procedures involved. As a board-certified specialist in Social Security disability law, Byron Lassiter has an in-depth understanding of the appeals process.
