Tallahassee Florida
Social Security Disability Attorney

Representing Disability Clients in SSI and SSDI Claims Throughout Tallahassee and North Florida

Denied Disability?  Free Consulation

    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

     Whether 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

     I 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

    Nationally, 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:

  1. Develop a complete understanding of all conditions, symptoms, and impairments that prevent you from working;
  2. Formulate 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;
  3. Gather 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;
  4. Prepare and present a persuasive case to the Judge.
