Why Hire a Disability Lawyer?

A disability lawyer from Parmele Law Firm will have the necessary experience and knowledge of disability law to lead you through the process properly and effectively. Your lawyer will be extremely familiar with the applications and appeal process and know exactly what is required to achieve the desired outcome.
If you are denied SSI/SSDI, your disability lawyer will help you through the reconsideration and appeals process. Additionally, if you have not yet applied and don’t know where to begin, we can help with that too.
Your attorney will be your disability advocate, ensuring the severity of your disability is clearly communicated, as well as the extent of your needs. Additionally, the lines of communication will always be open. So you can ask as many questions as you need to, knowing that your disability lawyer will have all the answers.

Since our disability attorneys are well versed in the application and appeal process for SSI/SSDI, they can help expedite the process.

This saves you valuable time.
5. Contingency Fees
You will not pay any fees upfront. Instead, your disability lawyer will work on a contingency fee. This means you will not owe us any money until we get you the SSI/SSDI benefits you need. In that case, our final fee will be based on your total financial award.
