When you first meet an attorney to discuss your Social Security Disability case you should make sure you are prepared to help your new attorney help you.
- Any and all paperwork you have received or sent to the Social Security Administration;
- A list of any and all ailments, illnesses or conditions which cause you to be disabled from work;
- The names and addresses of all your doctors;
- A list of all your current medications and any side effects; and,
- A list of your former employers, including the date of your last day of work.
Unlike in some firms, at Venus Poe, PA you will meet with an attorney on your first visit. We will go over your case with you in detail to make sure we understand all aspects of your claim for benefits. We will file your appeals and make sure that we have all of your medical records to help prove your case. We will meet with you at different times during the life of your case.
Once your hearing is scheduled in front of the Administrative Law Judge, we meet with you two to three more times to make sure that you are ready and comfortable for your hearing.
When I am waiting on a social security hearing to start, I sometimes see other Claimants meeting with their attorney for the first time immediately before the hearing. That is not the way our law firm works. If we decide to take your case, we are personally invested in you and do everything we can to make sure you have a successful outcome. We know that our clients have been waiting on their hearing for a long time. We understand the time spent waiting for the hearing is usually one of the most stressful periods in someone’s life. Even if you do not choose our firm, we hope that you have a personal relationship with your lawyer who is there for you for the long journey through the Social Security Disability process.
