In a city with a high cost of living, most people cannot afford being unable to work due to a long-term disability. Taking on the Social Security system often feels like a daunting task. However, at LaPorte Law Firm, we focus on opportunities as opposed to challenges. We know that done correctly, your disability claim has a good chance of being successful. Notably, the San Francisco hearing office has a 50% approval rate, which is 4% higher than the California average and 6% higher than the national average, so a claim for disability benefits filed in the San Francisco area has an advantage. The judges in San Francisco hold fair hearings, consider your medical evidence, understand the SSA regulations, and ask thoughtful questions to elicit important testimony.
Give your Social Security Disability claim the absolute best chance for success by being represented by our seasoned disability lawyers. With our excellent legal advice and insight into the local legal system and judges, you’ll soon be on your way to receiving the disability benefits you deserve.
