You want to hire a lawyer to resolve your Social Security Administration (SSA) disability claim. You are no longer able to work and the bills are piling up. Perhaps you need help applying, or you have been denied and don't know what to do next. It stands to reason that an expert in disability should stand by your side in this difficult time, but what questions should you ask before hiring him or her?
Best Questions To Ask Your Disability Lawyer
Here are some suggestions:
- How long have you been practicing disability law?
- Is your firm nationwide or are you local?
- What experience do you have in disability law?
- Do you specialize in disability law or only do it on the side?
- How long will my case take to resolve?
- What are the outcomes I might expect in my case?
- How often do you contact me about my case?
- How soon can I expect to hear from you when I need help?
- How familiar are you with the Administrative Law Judges who decide cases in the area?
- Who will be working on my case?
- What are your fees and how am I billed?
- What is a reasonable estimate of how much my case will cost overall?
