Nationwide Social Security Disability Attorney

When You Cannot Work Because of an Injury in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, or Nationwide We Are Here to Help You

If you are unable to work because of a mental or physical disability - such as heart disease, respiratory illness, neurological illness, HIV, depression or anxiety - you may have filed a claim for Social Security Disability Income benefits (SSDI) with the Social Security Administration, only to be denied.

While you may feel frustrated, it is important to remember that the vast majority of social security disability applications are denied, and persistence is the key. Contact an attorney who will be right by your side throughout the whole process at the Law Office of Patrick Flanigan.

Patrick Flanigan is an experienced employment benefits lawyer who will provide focused and effective assistance in challenging the denial. He will file an application and supporting documentation, including medical reports, for a hearing before the administrative law judge. He represents clients in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware at Social security disability appeal hearings on the administrative law judge level.

We will argue on your behalf at the hearing that you are in fact unable to perform substantial and gainful activity. If the claim is still denied at that level, you can rely on us to take the appeal through the entire administrative process and into court if necessary.

If you are awarded Social Security disability benefits, it will be based on your past earnings, plus an additional amount for treatment, prescription and continued medical coverage.
