Get Your Social Security Disability Benefits As Quickly As Possible

You’ve worked hard all your life and paid into Social Security with every paycheck.

Now you’re ill or have been injured, you can’t work and you need your benefits. The problem is that 60 to 70 percent of all Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims are denied, even when applicants are legitimately entitled to receive compensation. Every New York Social Security Disability lawyer sees this happen on a daily basis.

Worse yet, it can take up to two years, or even longer, to go through the entire process of appealing and winning your case. The financial devastation that results from having no money coming in is more than most people can handle, especially in this economy. Many lose their life’s savings, have to ask relatives for help or go on public assistance.

All this trouble stems from the difficulty in getting the benefits you deserve in enough time. That’s why you want an SSDI attorney’s professional representation for your case.

Stephen Jackel is an experienced and successful Social Security Disability lawyer. He has a proven track record of helping clients get the financial support they’re entitled to and can assist you in getting the benefits you’re due.

This is what one grateful client said after Stephen won Social Security Disability benefits for him:

“… We won! I just got the letter notifying me that I will be receiving my Social Security Disability benefits … I just wanted to express my gratitude for meeting you and having you as my lawyer. I really appreciate all your efforts on my behalf. I felt as if I was your only client. All my calls were returned promptly and you had so much patience with all of my questions and concerns … congratulations on a job well done.”

— Julian D.

  • Drafting special documentation such as a “dire need” letter if your circumstances require it, which can speed up the process of qualification, and correspondence to stop harassing bill collectors

  • Thorough, personalized one-on-one preparation for your hearing, so that you know what to expect and are ready to respond appropriately to the judge’s questions
  • Diligent tracking and notification of developments in your case, keeping you abreast of any changes and information crucial to gaining your benefits and protecting you against possible misinformation from Social Security personnel

Here’s a case that clearly illustrates the importance of having professional representation on your Social Security Disability case:

Stephen won substantial benefits for a man who worked as a clerk at a law firm. After the World Trade Center attack, he’d volunteered to help by driving debris out to the Staten Island landfill. Unfortunately, being exposed to the trauma of viewing body parts triggered post-traumatic stress disorder. Additionally, the client developed breathing difficulties from working at the WTC site. As with many cases involving mental illness or impairment, this man was initially denied benefits.

When Stephen was retained, he thoroughly reviewed the entire file. He quickly compiled a complete treatment record from the client’s doctors and had them complete special questionnaires that proved his disability. With all of this new medical evidence in hand, Stephen was able to deliver a convincing argument at the client’s hearing. The administrative law judge was persuaded to render a favorable decision, awarding the client back payments of over $20,000 and ongoing monthly disability benefits.
