Arizona Social Security Disability Attorney in Phoenix
The U.S. Social Security Administration receives hundreds of thousands of Social Security Disability applications each month. When a disability prevents a person from working, Social Security Disability (SSD) is an essential financial source of help. Unfortunately though, recovering these funds without the help of a Phoenix disability lawyer can be rather difficult.
Contrary to popular belief, a large percentage of social security disability claims are denied by the government. In fact, the majority of applicants are turned down upon their first attempt to file a claim. With this in mind, Arizona residents should seek the help of a legal professional in order to put themselves in the best position to successfully be approved and receive the monetary benefits.
If you or a loved one has been denied SSD on your first try, a Phoenix disability lawyer from Phillips Disability, P.C. is here to help. With office locations in several states, Phillips Disability, P.C. is able to provide services to clients across the nation.

Our Phoenix Disability Lawyers Help You Get Benefits
If you are unable to work in Arizona due to any combination of significant injuries or illnesses, you may have rights to government-administered Social Security Disability payments under the Social Security Act. However, most applications filed without the assistance of experienced disability lawyers are denied, usually forcing an extended disability appeal which can last for two or more years.
Meanwhile, a successful application represented by a SSD attorney will result in disability payments being disbursed to you in the form of a U.S Treasury check starting with the sixth month of your extended disability (there is a five month waiting period during which the government does not pay for your disability).
For guidance throughout this complex process, contact Phillips Disability, P.C. at your earliest convenience.

You Need a Phoenix Disability Lawyer for Your Disability Hearing
If you have a hearing that has already been scheduled, call our SSD lawyers immediately, 24/7 with the date and time of your Social Security hearing. Understand that if you appear at a hearing without a disability attorney, the judge will request that you consider adjourning your hearing in order to allow an experienced Social Security lawyer to provide you with a better chance of winning.
The judge may even just require one adjournment so that the record is clear you have been given every last opportunity. Then, if your hearing is adjourned, the delay may cost you several more months of waiting before you get the judge's initial decision. Appearing without experienced counsel can also result in waiver of rights or failure to recognize what objections should be raised or preserved in the process.
