Social Security Disability Attorney
Representing Disability Clients in SSI and SSDI Claims
Throughout Tallahassee and North Florida
Benefits denied does not have to be the final answer -- Living with a disability is a daily struggle. If you have been denied
disability benefits, it is unfortunate that you have to fight the
Social Security Administration (SSA) to get the disability benefits that
you need, but you do not have to fight alone. Call attorney James B. Countess
at 850-328-0301 for a no obligation consultation. The consultation is
free and you will not pay any attorney's fees
unless I win your claim!
A Lawyer Who Understands
you are struggling with a chronic condition, a newly-diagnosed disease,
or a serious injury, your condition is likely physically painful and emotionally
draining. In addition to your health concerns, you must continue to pay
your expenses and bills without your work income, which can be a daunting
task. You want to work, but you simply cannot. During your working years
you paid taxes into the disability insurance program (SSDI), and now those
benefits should be available to you when you need them the most. I call
it "walking in the client's shoes" and it is fundamental to
effectively representing a claimant in a Social Security disability claim.
A Lawyer Who Listens
understand that when people hire an attorney they are often experiencing
very stressful situations. Under these difficult circumstances you need
a lawyer that will listen and who will care about you and your issues.
Listening to the claimant is vital to understanding the mental and physical
conditions and assessing the limitations that these conditions create.
The Law Office of James B. Countess, PL is a Tallahassee, FL based law
firm committed to listening and understanding your situation so that we
can most effectively assist you with your case.
A Lawyer With Experience
more than 60% of all initial Social Security disability applications,
and more than 85% of all Requests for Reconsideration are denied. However,
more than 60% of the Social Security disability claims that are taken
to a formal hearing by a trained representative are granted. At the Law
Office of James B. Countess, PL your health, physical condition, and limitations
are closely evaluated alongside your medical record to find the strongest
arguments to demonstrate to the Social Security Administration (SSA) that
you are disabled. Typical steps include:
a complete understanding of all conditions, symptoms, and impairments
that prevent you from working;
a winning theory for your disability claim. Not all disability claims
can be won and, if your case falls in this category, we will provide
you with the important information so you can make an educated decision;
and assemble all medical documentation that supports our theory of your
case. The Social Security Administration (SSA) requires medical proof
that supports your claim and we use our knowledge and experience to
ensure your case is supported by the medical evidence;
and present a persuasive case to the Judge.
