If you dread the idea of working with 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 with the SSA on your own.

But the truth of the matter is simple: a lawyer experienced with disabilities claims 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 benefits claim, we always offer a free case review. 

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. You’ll have direct access to your lawyer. In addition, your lawyer 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.
