When you were able to work, you paid Social Security taxes from every one of your paychecks. But now that you’re unable to work due to your physical or mental condition, you’re struggling. How are you going to keep the lights on? Put food on the table? Take care of your family? Get the medical care you need?
Because you paid into the Social Security Disability system when you worked, you can apply for Social Security Disability benefits. But beware of trying to win benefits by yourself; let the experienced disability attorneys at Lachman & Gorton help with your disability claim.
Attempting to take on the Social Security Administration (SSA) on your own may seem like a good idea, but in reality, when you do it by yourself, your odds of winning benefits go down. Disability attorney Peter Gorton has 23 years of experience winning disability benefits for New Yorkers. Let us help you take on the SSA.
The attorneys and staff at Lachman & Gorton focus on how best to develop and present your case before the Administrative Law Judge or, if appropriate, the Appeals Court or Federal District Court to give you the absolute best chance to succeed in your case. In every case, the lawyer from our firm will accompany you to any hearings.
If you can’t work due to your physical or mental condition, call us for a free telephone consultation.
If you’re in the process of trying to get Social Security Disability benefits, I would highly recommend Lachman & Gorton. I was initially denied benefits, but I knew there was no way for me to work a full-time job with my health issues. After appealing the decision, I went to Lachman & Gorton for help.
The lawyers at Lachman & Gorton had the expertise to know what information the judge would be looking for. One quick meeting to get some facts from me and they did all the rest.
Lachman & Gorton did a fantastic job and were very helpful in winning my case.Michael Orlousky
