We’ll handle your case from start to finish

If you dread the idea of working with disability lawyers, don’t worry — that doesn’t offend us. There are a lot of less-than-flattering stereotypes out there about law firms, and we completely understand why you’d prefer to settle your case all on your own.

But the truth of the matter is simple: an experienced legal professional can mean the difference between winning or losing your case. And, if a firm has your best interests at heart, they’ll work on contingency — meaning they won’t charge you a dime unless they help you win. That way, you pay nothing out of pocket and only need to give them a small portion of your payout once your case has concluded. Jackson Law Firm, PLLC, disability lawyers always work on contingency. Whether you are considering applying for disability for the first time or appealing a social security disability claim our disability lawyers always offer free consultation. 

At Jackson Law Firm, PLLC, not only do we work on contingency, but we also actively choose to work with a limited amount of clients at any given time. What does this mean for you? Simple. It means that you’ll have direct access to your attorney. In addition, your social security disability attorney won’t be distracted by a bunch of other cases and will be right there with your from the moment you reach out to the moment your case is resolved. We’re in this with you every step of the way.
