Attorney vs. Representative

Do You Need A Lawyer?

Yes. Although you can apply without a lawyer, more than two-thirds of people who apply for disability benefits are DENIED by Social Security.

Social Security’s own statistics show that benefits are awarded far more frequently to people with representatives than to those who handle their own claims.

TALLAHASSEE SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY REPRESENTATIVE VS. ATTORNEY

Make Sure You Choose a Licensed Disability Attorney.

Not everyone who says they will help with your Social Security Disability case is actually a lawyer. Some are non-attorney representatives, "advocates" or paralegals.

If you aren’t sure, just ask them before choosing them to help you.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CHOOSE AN ACTUAL DISABILITY LAWYER?

Only a lawyer has an actual degree to practice law. That means only attorneys have training and education for complex legal matters, such as administrative law – the type of law used by the Social Security Administration. A disability attorney is trained in preparing and presenting evidence, cross-examining witnesses and writing complicated legal briefs about your disability claim.

NON-ATTORNEYS CAN’T FILE ALL THE APPEALS FOR YOUR CASE.

If Social Security denied your disability benefits – and more than half of the people who apply are denied – you are entitled to a number of appeals. At some point, you may have to file an appeal to the United States Federal Court. Only a lawyer can file that appeal. Advocates, representatives and paralegals are not allowed to practice in Federal Court.
