If you have been denied by Social Security…

Being denied can feel devastating.

The Social Security Disability system is filled with red tape and complicated forms. The application process is long and complicated. Many times, a small detail of your application can negatively affect your outcome. If you have been denied, don’t give up. Learn how our Disability Lawyers can appeal your case.

Important: The clock is ticking on your time to appeal, so do not delay in contacting a Disability Lawyer.

At Bothwell & Hamill, PLLC, we have helped claimants appeal denied Social Security Disability benefits for years. Let our experienced attorney’s help you gather the evidence you need to properly appeal your case.

If you have a hearing scheduled…

If Social Security has notified you that you will have a hearing, it’s very important that you and the evidence are both well prepared. You are strongly encouraged to get legal representation, such as an experienced disability attorney from Bothwell & Hamill, PLLC.

Your lawyer can analyze your Social Security file, prepare your case, obtain important evidence, prepare your testimony, make helpful legal arguments before and during the hearing, question witnesses, and cross-examine any medical and/or vocational experts who testify at your hearing.

No matter where you are in the process, if your health is expected to keep you from working at least a year, allow us to help. Contact us today.

If all your appeals have been denied…

If you have been denied, appealed, and been denied again, exhausting your appeals with Social Security, the next step is to file an appeal in Federal Court. You will need an attorney to file such an appeal. Not every denial is appropriate for Federal Court, so you should schedule a consultation with a Disability Lawyer to discuss your case.

Both Tom Bothwell and Tim Hamill are passionate about working hard for their clients, about the importance of successfully winning disability benefits and about treating everyone with honesty, dignity and respect. They are experienced in translating “legalese language” into words that ordinary people can understand. They work to take the fear out of a sometimes scary system especially people with serious health problems, who are having financial problems because they are now unable to work.
