You’ve paid into Social Security Disability (“SSDI”) all your working life. If you become disabled, you may be entitled to a monthly insurance payment until you are able to work again . . .

Virginia Beach Social Security Attorney

If you cannot work, the first step is to talk with your doctor, gather your medical records, and apply for benefits. And the sooner you do this the better, because it can take some time to get there, and the benefits do not start to accrue for you until you file. You will breathe a big sigh of relief when you are awarded if you start now. Because the money you and your family needs will arrive just in time.

The second step is if you are denied your benefits, to contact Virginia Beach Attorney Daniel Rodgers. He can appeal your case, and argue it up through several layers of government bureaucracy, until your case gets a hearing in United States District Court. (In appeals to the District Court, you do not have to attend.)

For this appeal, you pay no attorneys fees, unless we win, and in that case you still pay no attorneys fees out of pocket. They come from a portion of the award that is capped by law to a small amount relative to the award total.

As noted above, your appeal is heard in United States District Court. Virginia Beach Attorney Daniel Rodgers clerked for a U.S. District Judge after law school where he dealt with the broad range of cases that come before a federal court. And during law school, Daniel clerked for a U.S. District Magistrate Judge.

One of Daniel’s responsibilities was reviewing the many Social Security Disability cases presented to the U.S. District Court. Then he would research them, and draft an opinion for the Judge. Frequently the Judge adopted Daniel’s opinion. Alternatively, the Judge at times departed from it, but explained why.

This time in a U.S. District Court as a law student, and later as a law clerk, let Daniel see and experience the inner workings of the process. Virginia Beach Attorney Daniel Rodgers brings this strong U.S. District Court experience to your aid, and stands with you and your family in your time of need.

If you are unable to work, consult with your doctor, apply for Social Security Disability at your local Social Security Office or online, as soon as possible. Sometimes all goes well. But if you are denied, Virginia Beach Attorney Daniel Rodgers is here to help.

Don’t get discouraged. Many Social Security Disability cases initially denied by the bureaucracy are overturned on appeal with the help of a good attorney.
