Lexington Social Security Disability (SSD) Attorneys

Federal law states that you must be off work for a year or be expected to be off work for a year to qualify for social security disability benefits. If your disability claim has been denied, Gilbert Law Group PLLC (formerly Denney, Morgan, Rather & Gilbert) can help guide you in the next steps.

The federal government recognizes various impairments that are severe enough to prevent work. If your disability is not listed, a judge can make an exception. Our firm has successfully represented clients with impairments on and off this list:

  • Work injury, such as a back injury or repetitive strain injury
  • Mental impairment, such as depression or retardation
  • Physical impairment, such as a deformity
  • Heart disease
  • HIV / AIDS
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer

Whatever your impairment, our attorneys can help strengthen your disability claim. We can direct you to physicians who can file detailed reports about your condition. Our skill and experience helps us move your claim quickly and efficiently through the appeals process.

Denied Claim? We Guide You Through the Appeals Process

After your initial claim is denied, you need to get an attorney involved to confidently move on to appeals. If you have received a Notice of Denial from the Social Security Disability Administration, contact us as soon as possible. We can assist you through the Reconsideration, Request for Hearing, and Appeals Council levels of appeals, as well as make sure you meet the deadlines for filing.

Whether your disability claim is resolved early or must ultimately proceed to hearing, we are your advocate in the appeals process. We can also help determine if you are qualified to receive supplemental security income (SSI), Medicare benefits, and/or Medicaid benefits.

We Don’t Get Paid Unless You Get Paid

Our firm offers a free initial consultation, and we work on a contingency fee basis. It is our goal to not incur any additional costs when handling social security disability claims. We don’t collect attorneys’ fees unless we collect benefits for you.*
