When should I get an attorney involved?

You can engage legal counsel at any point in the process of applying for Social Security disability. Some claimants want to engage legal counsel as early in the process as possible to ensure that things are done right from the start so as to maximize their chances of winning as soon as possible. Others prefer to wait to see if they can win on their own.

Although Marasco & Nesselbush prefers to be involved from the beginning so we can maximize and optimize your results, there is really no “right answer.” At Marasco & Nesselbush we are happy to represent clients at whatever stage they feel comfortable. However, in our opinion, clients should NOT attend an administrative hearing at the Office of Disability Review and Adjudication without an attorney.

Marasco & Nesselbush is extremely helpful and successful in obtaining Social Security disability benefits for disabled claimants. National statistics show that claimants with legal representationhave a substantially greater likelihood of receiving an award of disability benefits than claimants who proceed without an attorney.

Applying for Social Security disability benefits can be a difficult, daunting and overwhelming process. A missed deadline may mean that you have to start the process over again. A missed deadline or unfavorable decision after your “date last insured” has expired may mean that you are forever precluded from applying again. Do not let this happen to you. Do not be a victim of the system.

Marasco & Nesselbush can and will ease your way during the application and appeal processes. In addition to obtaining your medical records, we at Marasco & Nesselbush have developed effective strategies to obtain important medical opinion evidence to support your disability claim. We will communicate with your physician(s) to obtain helpful medical and legal evidence of your disability. Over the years, we have developed valuable physician questionnaires to enable your doctor(s) to meaningfully and easily support your claim for disability benefits. We will advise you regarding the application process, we will appeal a denial, if any, we will review your case to determine if you qualify for an expedited decision, we will prepare you and accompany you to your hearing before the Administrative Law Judge and, once approved, we will continue to advocate for you until you receive your retroactive and monthly benefits.

Without Marasco & Nesselbush, you may be unnecessarily denied, your case may take longer than it needs to, or you may not receive all the benefits to which you are legally entitled. Do not let any of these things happen to you. Call us for a free consultation. We make a difference.
