I work at Heard & Smith, a national disability law firm with over 100 employees working to help thousands of clients get their disability benefits. We can work with you regardless of where you live, in the event you need a disability hearing we get you a local lawyer who knows your local judges.
My firm offers a great guidebook free to anyone through our website. The guidebook will help you learn if you are eligible for disability benefits, what you would get if you win, and how Social Security decides if someone is disabled.
I contribute articles over at Living with a Disability, a great online magazine dedicated to helping people live their life to the fullest. I write on topics like living with a disability, how to get Social Security Disability, and about disabling medical conditions.
