Southern California Social Security Disability Claim Lawyers
Was Your Disability Claim Turned Down?
The process of applying for disability benefits can be challenging for someone who is not familiar with the system. More than 80 percent of the people who start the process on their own have their initial claims turned down. A California disability claims attorney can improve your chances significantly by presenting your case in the most favorable light.
At the law firm of Judith S.

When necessary, we consult medical specialists and other experts in building and supporting our clients' cases. We have represented numerous clients at all levels of appeal and are intimately familiar with the burden of proof requirements involved.
Our California disability claim lawyers have had success in disability cases at all stages of the process: initial application, reconsideration, hearing and appeals. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case at one of our convenient office locations in Downey, Orange and Ontario in Southern California.
