Questions to Ask a Michigan Disability Lawyer

Your Lawyer Could Make the Difference in the Success of Your Benefits Claim

A very high percentage of initial applications for Social Security disability benefits are denied. An attorney who knows the law, the system, and how to present the strongest possible evidence of your impairment can dramatically improve your chances of success.

Although Social Security is a federal program, eligibility for benefits is decided on a local level. Today, many large law firms advertise their representation nationwide — but it is important to realize that you will likely not meet the lawyer on the television commercial. At Babut Law Offices, PLLC, we believe working with a proven, local Michigan attorney is a better choice.

Some key questions to ask a Michigan disability lawyer include:

  • Will I be represented by an attorney exclusively focused on Social Security disability law?
  • Are you committed to staying on top of my case and keeping me informed through every phase of my case?
  • How much experience do you have obtaining benefits for your clients through the hearing-and-appeals process?
  • Are you familiar with the specific Social Security Office of Adjudication and Review (ODAR) that will decide my case — whether in Detroit, Flint, Lansing, Oak Park, Livonia or elsewhere?

The offices of our longstanding firm are established in Ypsilanti-Ann Arbor, Taylor and the Downriver area, Jackson and Adrian. A team of five caring, veteran attorneys is available to assess your needs on a face-to-face basis, and you will be represented in any hearing or appeal procedure by dedicated Social Security disability attorney J. Gregory (Greg) Frye.
