WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ADVOCATE AND A LAWYER?

Non-attorney disability advocates may have training in the Social Security process, but they do not have law degree. They can help you file your initial claim, but if you’re denied (and most people are) you want the help of a disability attorney to appeal your case to the next level. If your appeal goes up to Federal Court, you must hire an attorney.

If you have any questions about whether or not you qualify for disability benefits, you should work with a disability attorney.

If you don’t win you claim, you pay no legal fees so it’s an easy decision. Let Yarmouth Disability Lawyer Dan Emery help you. Call 800-310-7771 or fill out the form to contact Dan Emery for help with your disability claim.
