Charlotte Social Security Disability Attorneys

Helping You Seek Benefits in Mecklenburg County & Throughout North Carolina

If you have been turned down for Social Security Disability Insurance, you may feel as if you are out of options. In reality, you should not be discouraged. The majority of people who apply for SSDI are turned down initially. Our Charlotte SSDI lawyers have a successful track record of helping our clients obtain benefits through the appeals process.*

At Jetton & Meredith, our attorneys represent people who are unable to work due to a disability. We offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights and answer your questions about Social Security Disability.

To request your consultation, give us a call at (704) 931-5535 or contact us online. We represent clients in Charlotte and throughout North Carolina.

Social Security Disability Appeals Process

Working with an attorney when applying for benefits and appealing a decision regarding SSDI can make the process a lot easier. Jetton & Meredith can help you at every step.

Applying for SSDI is usually a three-step process, including:

  • Initial application: You can apply for Social Security Disability Insurance online or at your local Social Security Administration office. You will need to provide medical documentation of your disability.
  • Reconsideration: If your initial application is denied (as is the case with most applicants), you can file a Request for Reconsideration. Unfortunately, the majority of claims that are denied initially are also denied at reconsideration.
  • Hearing: If your request for reconsideration is denied, you can request a hearing before an administrative law judge. This is the stage where most people are successful in obtaining benefits. It’s important to have an attorney represent you at this hearing.

    Our lawyers will review your medical records and help you document your disability. While the process of obtaining benefits can be time-consuming, we strive to answer your questions and keep you updated about your claim. We charge no attorney fees until and unless we obtain disability benefits for you.
