Knowledgeable Legal Help with Social Security Disability

Attorney Phillip Shell handles Social Security Disability cases at Atkin & Associates. Social Security Disability is available to those who have paid sufficiently into the social security system, and are unable to work for a period of one year. This means you could be eligible for Social Security Disability while recovering from a serious accident or series of surgeries. If you will likely be off work for at least a year due to an accident or illness, apply for Social Security Disability immediately. You can have the forms mailed to you by calling the national office at 1(800)772-1213 (7 am to 7pm) or complete the forms online at

Social Security asks that you apply at the first level without an attorney. This protects you from paying attorney's fees if social security is awarded without dispute. However, most people are denied at the first level. If your claim is denied, there is limited time to file for reconsideration or a hearing. Be sure to contact Phil immediately.
