Social Security Disability

Virginia Beach Virginia Social Security Disability Benefits Lawyer

Norfolk VA SSI SSDI Appeals Attorney

Living with a physical or mental disability is difficult. Every day you face a multitude of barriers affecting your daily needs. When a disability is severe enough to limit your ability to be gainfully employed, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits.

Unfortunately, the process of receiving Social Security disability benefits is not always easy. In fact, the majority of initial Social Security disability claims are denied, no matter the extent of a person’s disability. Filing an appeal and fighting the system may be the only way of securing the benefits you and your family so desperately need.

At Swango Law P.C., in Virginia Beach, we help individuals with documented disabilities file appeals for Social Security disability benefits. Setting our firm apart from many others is the distinctive experience of our founding attorney Jason Swango.

A Unique Blend of Experiences

Prior to beginning his legal career, attorney Swango worked as a radiologist for ten years in a trauma center’s operating room. His comprehensive understanding of the law and medical terminology related to various injuries and disabilities can be of great benefit in Social Security disability appeals. Contact us to speak with him during an initial consultation.

Appealing Social Security Disability Benefits Denials

It is not uncommon for people with significant disabilities to be denied Social Security disability benefits the first time they apply. It is important to know that anyone who has been denied these benefits has the right to pursue an appeal.

The appeal process is very complex, requiring an in-depth knowledge of the Social Security Administration’s many rules and regulations. As your dedicated legal advocates, we will assist you with:

  • Gathering necessary medical information and documentation
  • Preparing and filing your appeal
  • Representing you at hearings
  • Taking your case to federal court, if necessary

Taking Appeals on a Contingency-fee Basis

In general, disabled individuals who are unable to work must operate on a tight budget. At Swango Law, P.C., we understand this and handle all Social Security disability benefits appeals on a contingency-fee basis. This means you will not be responsible for attorney fees unless we are successful in appealing your denied claim. You do not have to worry about where the money to hire a lawyer will come from.
