Public Benefits & Social Security

When should I contact a Public Benefits Lawyer?

  • I am not able to work and need to apply for Social Security.
  • My child or someone in my family has a long-term disability.
  • I need help with food, healthcare, and daily expenses.

Why should I hire a lawyer?

Applying for public benefits can be challenging. A lawyer who is familiar with all the forms and procedures can help review all your documents and can make sure your case is filed correctly. If your case is not filed properly, you may lose your right to government benefits. A qualified lawyer can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case and protect your rights.

How do I choose a Public Benefits Lawyer?

Because applying for public benefits can be complicated, it is best to have an experienced lawyer help you with your case. You may have to file important applications and prepare for court hearings. The Boston Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service can help connect you with a qualified lawyer to suit your individual needs.
