Finding the right lawyer for your case is very important, and there are many choices. Fortunately, BenGlassLaw can help you find the best lawyer to have a successful claim. Without proper legal guidance, many people pick the most convenient option. Due to the specialization of Disability law, the right lawyer may not be so close to you. The best option is to find the most qualified and competent lawyer available, not the closest.
Call your local Social Security office and ask for a list of experienced disability law attorneys, or you can search up “Virginia Social Security Disability attorney” and create your own list. Visit their websites and look at what information they offer. You can also ask family and friends for recommendations on attorneys if they have ever been in a similar situation. Word of mouth is often a good way of finding qualified lawyers due to the satisfaction of their clients, but the reputation of incompetent lawyers can spread as well.
Be sure to meet face to face with each attorney on your list, and test how comfortable you are with them. It is important to be comfortable with your lawyer or else you will most likely not share all the information they need.
National Disability Law Firms vs. Local Law Firms
It is important to know the differences between local law firms and those of bigger ones. National law firms exist that specialize in Social Security Disability claims, but the relationships are not as personal due to the high number of cases attorneys are involved in. On the other hand, local law firms will know your name, case details, and it will be more personal. You must decide if you want a strong relationship with your attorney or not.
