Chicago Social Security Disability Attorneys

Jonathan Pearson

Lawyers for Social Security Disability Assistance in Illinois

If you are unable to work because of a disabling physical or mental condition, Social Security Disability benefits may be available to help you through this difficult time. The application process can be frustrating, however, and the majority of claimants are not approved after their initial application. To ensure you receive the benefits you are eligible for, it is essential to have an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer by your side to help you navigate through this complex process.

Attorney Jonathan L. Pearson, managing attorney at Pearson Disability Law, LLC, has helped thousands of individuals in the Chicago area and throughout Illinois become approved for Social Security Disability benefits. Mr. Pearson practices disability law exclusively and has a passion for helping those who are unable to work gain the benefits they deserve. He is a Chicago Bar Association member and a member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR).

Mr. Pearson understands the difficulty in gaining approval for Social Security Disability, and he puts his experience to work to aggressively advocate for your interests. He handles each case personally and is with you during each step of the process. From gathering your medical records to effectively arguing your case upon appeal, you can count on him to do everything possible to ensure a positive outcome.

The Social Security Disability Application Process

If you have just stopped working because of a disabling condition, we can help you get started on your Social Security Disability application. There are several forms to fill out and a lot of information to gather. It is important for your application to be as thorough as possible and present all information as best you can. This helps avoid unnecessary delays and increases your chances of approval during the initial application. Attorney Pearson has handled thousands of applications for disability benefits and can ensure that yours is complete and includes all relevant information.

Denied Social Security Disability Benefits? There is Still Hope

A denial of Social Security Disability benefits is merely a setback and does not mean you cannot receive the benefits you need. In Illinois, approximately 70% of claimants are denied in their initial application, so you are not alone. An even higher percentage of claimants are denied in their request for reconsideration, so it is important not to give up at this stage either.

If you are awaiting a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge, this is a crucial stage wherein success or failure will depend strongly on the strength of the legal arguments presented. Your chances are greatly increased with a skilled lawyer in your corner. Whatever stage you are at in the process, we can help keep your claim moving forward.

You Only Pay If We Win

We understand when you are unable to work, finances are very tight. For this reason, we offer free consultations and never charge upfront attorney fees. Bottom line: if Mr. Pearson believes he can help you, you will only pay if we win your case. If you or someone close to you needs help getting approved for Social Security Disability benefits in Illinois, contact Pearson Disability Law, LLC today at 312-999-0999312-999-0999 for a free case evaluation.
