Applying For Disability Benefits? You're Not Alone.

We know you’re struggling. We know how frustrating the Social Security claims process can be. The good news is you don’t have to go through it alone.

We’re on your side. The disability attorneys at Penar Law have helped thousands of people in the same situation. Whether you’re applying for the first time or you’ve already been denied, we’ll help you win the Social Security disability benefits you deserve.

Be aware that there are out-of-state or distant Social Security lawyers who advertise in our area, and we advise you to ask any attorney where their home office is located.

With our firm we do it all, and more.

If Your Claim Has Been Denied By Social Security

It’s not necessarily over. Social Security can be proven wrong. They’re a bureaucracy, and your application may have been denied unfairly. You can appeal their decision, but the Social Security Administration has a strict time limit of 60 days for filing appeals. It’s important to promptly pursue any possible appeal in a timely manner. Contact us right away. We know the process, we know the pitfalls, and we’ll help you prepare for your appeal and we’ll help you win.

If You Have A Hearing Scheduled

If you filed for a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge, it’s extremely important that you and the evidence be thoroughly prepared beforehand. We strongly encourage you to get legal help at this point. Disability lawyer Eric Penar will analyze your Social Security file, prepare your case, obtain important evidence, help you prepare your testimony, make key legal arguments, question witnesses, and cross-examine any medical or vocational experts who testify at your hearing.

This is a crucial phase in your Social Security case. Contact our office right away so we have enough time to work with you to build the strongest case.

How Much Does A Social Security Disability Attorney Cost?

If you don’t win benefits, there are no attorney fees. As your case gets closer to a hearing and Social Security gives us the final version of the records they’ve collected, we’ll work with you to find out what important records they missed, then do the necessary legwork to track them down. If your medical providers charge a fee for the collection of these records, we’ll pre-pay it and bill you for the actual costs at the end of your case. We do not charge you for our time to gather those records from your doctor.

If you do win, and only if you win, our fee is 25% of the back benefits awarded, with a maximum fee of $6,000, if there is an exceptionally large amount of back benefits. Contact our office today.

You Only Have 60 Days!
Once you’re denied benefits, the clock starts ticking. You only have 60 days to appeal. Don’t wait too long to contact a lawyer. You can miss the deadline to appeal.
