Filing a Social Security

Disability Application?

We can help!

The number one thing you need to know is that meeting the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) strict definition of “disabled” can be difficult.

The SSA will only consider you “disabled” if:

  • You can no longer perform work you used to;
  • A doctor or other medical professional deems you unable to perform other work because of your medical condition(s); and
  • Your physical or mental condition has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.

Let disability attorney Frank Hanley and his legal team help prove your disability to the SSA.

Need To Appeal

Your Denial?

Contact our office right away! Under Social Security’s rules, you have only 60 days to file your appeal. Getting denied on your first attempt is normal, so don’t be discouraged.

The process to appeal can be very complicated and time-consuming, but it’s still possible for you to win benefits. The clock is ticking so don’t delay in filing your appeal if you’ve received a denial letter. Call us today for a free consultation of your disability claim.

At the Law Office of J. Frank Hanley II, we know the process and can file a Request for Reconsideration on your behalf. If your Request for Reconsideration is denied, we can request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). If an ALJ denies your case, we can present your case before the Social Security Administration’s Appeals Council.

Need Help Preparing

for Your Hearing?

If you know you have a hearing scheduled, you should start preparing immediately. This is also the best time to get experienced help from a disability representative.

Frank Hanley and his staff have helped thousands of people in Indiana with their disability cases. He has over 45 years of knowledge and experience in Social Security Disability law and will:

  • understand your impairments
  • analyze your Social Security file
  • prepare your case
  • obtain important evidence such as medical records
  • prepare your testimony
  • question witnesses
  • make helpful legal arguments before and during the hearing
  • cross-examine any medical and/or vocational experts who testify at your hearing
  • file appeals in a timely manner  (if necessary)
  • represent you at each stage of  your claim

Don’t risk going to your hearing alone. We’ll meet with you face-to-face before your hearing to help you to prepare. Social Security’s own statistics show you have a higher chance of winning benefits if you get help from a disability representative.

What Does It Cost?

The Law Office of J. Frank Hanley II doesn’t charge you any legal fee unless you win your case.

The Social Security Disability system is designed this way to make sure you can afford help during a difficult time. Mr. Hanley and his team believe strongly that the system should give you free access to representation up front.

When you do win benefits, the legal fees you pay come out of past-due benefits starting from the date you officially qualified as having a disability under Social Security Administration rules.

The most you will ever pay is 25% of those past benefits, nothing out of your pocket.
