How a Local Merrillville Disability Attorney Can Help

Although Social Security is a federal program, getting approved for disability benefits is a fairly local matter.

The Disability Determination Bureau (DDB) may review applications at the state level, but after a couple of denials, applicants have the opportunity to make their case at a hearing in front of a judge. These hearings are held in only a few cities across each state, funneling an entire region of applicants into the offices of local judges.

That’s one reason why hiring an attorney with an office in Merrillville can be so beneficial. A Merrillville disability attorney has experience with your local judges and knows the ins and outs of the disability application process. They can guide you through the specifics with their local experience.

Hensley Legal Group has had an office in Merrillville since 2014, but we first began serving disabled individuals in Merrillville long before that. Our Merrillville disability attorneys have the strength and experience to make a difference in your claim. Call our local office today or contact us online for a free conversation about your case.

A Risk-Free Guarantee from Your Merrillville Disability Lawyers

Filing for Social Security disability benefits can take months, even years. Those who apply for benefits are essentially telling the government that they cannot work or cannot work enough to make ends meet.

So how can disability applicants afford to hire a disability attorney?

At Hensley Legal Group, you’ll never have to worry about paying upfront fees or retainers. Instead, we work on contingency.

Working on contingency means that you won’t owe a single penny unless and until you get approved for disability benefits. It means if you don’t get paid, neither do we.

That’s how we can offer a risk-free guarantee to our clients. If you hire us and don’t get approved for benefits, you won’t owe us any payment for our services. If you do get approved, we’ll only get paid out of your past due benefits. Social Security even regulates our fee, so we won’t take more than 25 percent for a normal case, capped at $6,000 total.

You won’t have to pay for our services unless and until you’re in a position to be able to pay. If you have questions about our fees, give us a call or contact us online. We’re happy to walk you through our process.

If you’re interested in applying for Social Security disability benefits, don’t delay. Hearings for Merrillville residents are funneled through the Valparaiso office, where it currently takes an average of 18 months to get your hearing scheduled. That doesn’t include the time spent filing the initial application, getting denied, filing an appeal, or getting denied again.
