As we all know, the federal government sometimes is a complex and slow moving process. Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration is not an exception to that. You need an attorney that knows the law, that knows the regulations and knows what your rights and obligations are under those laws.
Social Security often times has a habit of telling clients one thing when the law says another thing. They also have a habit of telling clients that they have a certain amount of time to do something, but in reality they have much more time. So it is important to have an attorney tell you really what you have to do, and [who] really knows the law and can navigate through the complex process of social security.
Another reason you need an attorney is because there is a lot of medical evidence, and you need an attorney that can look at the medical evidence and know what is important and what is not important to build your case, to put on the best case possible to get you disability benefits.
Thirdly, you probably need a lawyer, because a lot of times your case will go to a hearing. A hearing is more or less like the courtroom, so you need to have an attorney that knows his way around a courtroom, knows how to speak to a judge, knows how to put on testimony, and knows how to really show the judge all the facts that are needed to put you in the best position to get disability benefits.
