During the more than 25 years I have been practicing as a West Virginia disability lawyer I have helped many men and women obtain Social Security disability benefits. I became a lawyer because I wanted to help ordinary people, and I am committed to the belief that there should be equal justice for all. I represent people from all walks of life who need assistance in getting the Social Security disability benefits they deserve.
I have prepared this website to provide you with information about many aspects of applying for West Virginia Social Security disability benefits. To learn more, please explore the articles and videos available here.
If you have applied for Social Security disability benefits and your claim has been denied, you are no doubt feeling distressed. But a denial of an initial claim is not the end of the story, and you should not give up at this point. Why? Because if you pursue your claim until you have a hearing before an administrative law judge, you significantly increase your chances of a successful outcome. Social Security denies about two-thirds of the initial claims it receives, but it awards disability benefits in well over half the claims that are appealed to the hearing stage.
