Localized Focus For SSDI Cases

Many law firms throughout the country tout their ability to handle Social Security disability claims on a nationwide basis. At Crowe & Shanahan, we focus only on SSDI claims for clients in St. Louis, southern Illinois and eastern Missouri.

Personalized Service, Experience And Results

Personalized service and a local focus should be the criteria in selecting an attorney to handle your SSDI or SSI claim. Experience is a necessity, and we combine for more than 80 years of experience. A reputation for success is something that we pride ourselves on. Yet, the above means little unless you can show your results. Just ask our past clients. They will tell you how we were able to help them.

No one is required to have a lawyer represent them on a Social Security case, but most people do have a lawyer by the time of the hearing before the administrative law judge. People can consult a lawyer at any time, even before filing a claim. The government’s own figures show that people who have representation are more likely to win.

A lawyer who is familiar with Social Security cases will know all the details of how to appeal. That lawyer should be skilled in evaluating the disability and giving counsel about how the law applies to a person’s particular situation. They should know what medical proof is needed and how to get it. They will prepare the client to testify, describing the disability to the judge in the strongest way possible. That lawyer should also be able to explain all of the government’s decisions and help with any problems that come up about your payments.
