Are you unable to work due to a physical or mental disability and wish to receive your Social Security Disability benefits?
Have you applied for Social Security Disability or SSI and received a denial or Notice of Disapproved Claim? Michigan Social Security attorney William Crawforth can help you get the disability benefits you deserve.
Securing your Social Security benefits is a complex process with many potential pitfalls that can jeopardize your appeal. Plus, the state of today’s economy and resulting lower Social Security tax revenues mean the Social Security Administration has less funds available for claimants of Social Security Disability Income benefits. This makes it even more important to get proper representation from a Social Security attorney or lawyer.
This is how William Crawforth can help you:
Securing your Social Security Disability benefits, after denial, requires expertise beyond that of a general practitioner. Mr. Crawforth will represent you every step of the way and help you with the important details so you have the best chance at getting your SSDI benefits.
Mr. Crawforth is a well-respected attorney who has a reputation for winning Social Security cases. Mr. Crawforth is a solo-practitioner, not a big law firm that has “junior associates” who have little knowledge of your situation nor the ability to handle your case properly. Mr. Crawforth will help you from start to finish to eliminate errors and help you win your case.
Mr. Crawforth has been helping people secure their Social Security benefits since 1979. Mr. Crawforth will personally make sure your Social Security appeal is handled properly from start to finish.
Mr. Crawforth has secured Social Security disability or SSI benefits for over 2,000 clients and rarely loses a case. He has obtained millions of dollars of benefits for his clients.
His fee is 25% up to a maximum of $6,000 from past due benefits the Social Security Administration owes you. You keep 100% of the monthly benefits thereafter. He only gets a fee when you win. If he cannot win your claim Mr. Crawforth’s services will not cost you a dime.
The earlier you get help from a qualified Social Security attorney to represent you with your appeal, the faster you can start receiving your monthly Social Security Disability or SSI benefits.
