We handle many Social Security cases nation wide but if you want to
find a lawyer who has handled Social Security Disability cases closer to you, feel free to click on any state below and
I will help you find a lawyer who has handled many SSDI and SSI cases near you. It is important to remember
you will want to find a lawyer who has handled many cases and has a strong understanding of both the process and what you
need to win your benefits. Most attorneys get paid on a contingency basis. They get paid only if you win and the
standard amount is 25% of past due benefits not to exceed $5,300. There are exceptions were lawyers will file a
fee petition for the time spent on the case but contingency fee agreement is by far the most common method of payment.
If you find a lawyer on your own make sure to ask how many Social Security Disability cases he or she has handled. You
will want someone who is experienced. If you want to know more about how a lawyer can help with your SSDI claim and
why it is important to have lawyer at application

There are many options when looking for help with your claim from a Social Security Disability lawyer. There
are big national firms with many lawyers covering many states some of these handle just SSDI claims and others cover many
areas of law. There is also small firms that handle cases locally, some that do just SSDI cases and those that
handle many different types of cases. You also have many solo practitioners who usually handle claims in their geographic
area. There is also non-attorney firms both big a small that just represent SSDI claims. I think all of the different
types have there advantages and disadvantages. Big firms have many lawyers and resources but will probably not have
that personal touch a smaller firm or solo practitioner may have. Many people who e-mail me who have large firms
often complain they feel like a number and that their phone calls are not returned. A positive thing about large
firms is that you usually know if they handle many Social Security Disability claims but don't expect to see the
person whose name is on the firm to see you or be at your hearing. I believe from the responses I have seen
in my e-mails that smaller firms or solo-practitioners tend to be more personable and return phone calls but many
of the smaller firms may handle different types of cases and have less experience with SSDI cases. When it comes to
deciding between local representation or a representative that handles cases nationwide there are several things you
can consider. Many people like to have a local lawyer because they can make an appointment and meet the attorney
in person. If you have a representative that is not local most of your interaction will be by phone, mail and e-mail.
I handle cases for clients who are both close to me and others that are across the country. In my experience doing
this I have found that other than the initial meeting of the client there is no difference in how the claim is handled
because even with a local lawyer most interaction with the client is by phone and mail.
I will now tell you a little
bit about my firm and how we handle these claims. We are a family law firm that started with my father
Lawrence Kazmierczak, Esq. about 30 years ago. I am Karl Kazmierczak, Esq. I am a partner in the firm
and my wife Robin Kazmierczak, Esq. is the other partner. I am a Board Certified
Social Security Disability Specialist by the National Board of Social Security Disability Advocacy. My mother
has been the office manager for 30 years and my administrative assistant has been with the firm for 20+ years. I
have found that their experience is a huge advantage to our clients. We also have additional staff including a
Spanish interpreter who before working for us was an interpreter for SSDI hearings. Our philosophy is to win as early
in the process as possible. It does not matter at what point the client is in the process we start to develop the
case right away. I am the author of this website and I have handled every one of my clients hearings for about the last
13 years and I have recently hired an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer to help with our growing practice.
I understand that some people like to have a local representative that is why I offer to help those who want a
local social security disability lawyer to find one experienced in these claims. I only find lawyers who are in
the same organization I am for Social Security Representatives called NOSSCR or that are Board Certified Social Security
Disability Advocates. This insures the attorney you get handles SSDI claims regularly.
