If you or someone close to you is disabled/injured and considering applying for Social Security Supplemental Insurance (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), it is critical to take action that maximizes your chance of obtaining benefits.
Applying for benefits without the skill and advice of an experienced lawyer can all but guarantee rejection — the vast majority of initial claims are initially rejected and those who try to obtain benefits without skilled counsel are less than half as likely to secure benefits.
Maitland Disability Claim Lawyer
At The Law Office of J. Michael Matthews, we are ready to bring nearly 40 years of Florida Social Security claims experience to work for you, exclusively on commission. We do not collect any attorney's fees until you are able to obtain the benefits to which you are entitled.
In every case we put the utmost premium on personal attention. Since the beginning of Mr. Matthews' career he has worked with disabled and injured clients, and the team understands the stresses and difficulties with these cases. As such, head attorney Matthews always conducts his own initial consultations and works with clients through to appeals and beyond.
All too often we have had clients come to us from large or national firms that have stopped representing them when a case reaches a particular stage or when things become too difficult. We are tireless in our advocacy and will never abandon you if there is a possibility of obtaining benefits.
If there is a need for a hearing, Mr. Matthews will always brief you on what to expect and how to ideally answer questions to maximize favorable outcomes. This is unfortunately a rarity among nonattorney advocates and even larger firms — we believe in a hands-on approach and our attorney's conduct is accountable to a bar unlike many other SSI/SSDI advocacy groups.
We also do children's SSI work.
Our office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is conveniently located near Interstate 4. I am also available for after-hours appointments by request.
