SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY APPEALS

When a physical or mental disability keeps you from doing your job, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. Social Security routinely turns down valid claims after an initial application. If you’re serious about a claim, you can request a hearing within 60 days of receiving your letter. That’s a good time to have a lawyer on your side.

At the law office of Murphy, Butterfield & Holland, P.C., we have more than 30 years of experience helping people who can no longer work receive Social Security Disability. We can develop and secure the medical evidence necessary for your claim and prepare you for hearings.
