Social Security Disability First Step; Find A Lawyer?
I Need To Apply For Ssdi For An Elder Family Member. I'M Confused If I Should Just Get A Lawyer Right From The Start, Or Fill Out The Application Online And Supply All The Information Myself..
What Is The Benefit Of Getting A Lawyer To Begin The Process?
There is no benefit to having an attorney unless a person is at the hearing level. People who have filed a request for a hearing have a greater chance of being approved if they have an attorney who is knowledgeable about social security law as it applies to disabilities. They can have valuable insight as to the vocational aspects of the process.
A person should file their own claim, the reconsideration and the request for a hearing and only THEN get themselves an attorney. Before the hearing it is simply a matter of filling out forms which only the disabled person knows the answers to. NOTE: About 35% of initial claims are approved so obviously not everyone gets denied. About 40% to 60% are approved who go to a hearing - on the higher end with an attorney.
So go to ssa.gov and file the disability claim online. However, if denied I strongly suggest that you and your disabled family member go to the office to file the appeals and do it as soon as you get the denial letters - if that is the case. The process is long enough without a person dragging it out even further by waiting until the last minute to file appeals (you have 60 days in which to file an appeal) and taking care of the appeals via the mail drags the process out even further. At least if you go to the office to file the appeals you know when the processing of the appeal begins - the day it is filed. Otherwise who knows how long it will sit on the claims reps desk before they have time to work it and get it moving to the offices it needs to go to for processing.
And for your information here is social security's definition of a disability - A person who has a medical condition so severely disabling that they are incapable of working and earning $1040 a month in ANY type of work activity (not just what they've been doing) and is expected to last for at least 12 months.
If it is necessary to file appeals social security is open 9am-3pm, Mon-Fri except Wednesday afternoons (9am-12pm) and national holidays.
Do Attorneys Issue And Sell Title Insurance Or Simply Buy It On Behalf Of Their Clients?
I Understand That Attorneys Perform Title Searches And Make A Title Judgment/Title Assessment. I Also Know That They Would Have To Hold An Insurance License In The State They Are Located, Be Backed By An Insurance Company(I.E. Be An Insurance Broker/Rep), Or Have An Actual Insurance Company,But All Of These Are Possible To Do. What Is The Normal Situation With Real Estate Attorneys And Title Insurance?
the attorney has to be approved to do title opinions for title insurance companies. there are required classes and seminars and insurance the attorney must have before they are cleared to do the title check and opinion for the title insurance company. Then the title company issues the policy.
Help Attorney Needed?
Crackerjack Discrimination Attorney For A Kennesaw, Ga., Case Is Needed. Time Is Of The Essence. Thank You In Advance For Your Assistance.
Oh, don't you wish finding a good attorney were really this easy? Sorry, it's not.
Your phone directory probably has a yellow pages section for attorneys. If it covers a large enough area, they will probably also be broken down by specialty. Lawyers are almost as specialized as doctors these days, you know.
However, Kennesaw is probably not a very large town, and chances are there is no more than one attorney who would even be willing to accept a particular case. So if it is important that your attorney live where you do, you probably don't have many choices. Call all the attorneys in the book, and you may find one.
The more likely scenario is that you will need to go to the county seat (or is Kennesaw a county seat?), or even the state capital to find a large enough concentration of attorneys for your purposes. The good news is they tend to advertise with a good bit of information in the yellow pages, and also on the Internet.
How To Find Out Someone'S Place Of Employment? I'M An Attorney And Have Several Clients That Haven'T Paid Me?
I'M Planning On Suing Them But Am Trying To Prioritize Who To Take To Court First. I Figure It'S Best To Take The Ones That Actually Have Jobs First But I Need To Know How To Find That Out. Anyone Out There With Any Suggestions On Debt Collection?
Proceed with caution. The problem with debt collection if you're an attorney is they may turn around and claim that you committed malpractice in handling their matter. If they report you to the bar you may have to deal with an investigation. Even if their claim is frivolous, it'll be a major headache to deal with and will take time away from your practice. Next time, get a retainer up front to prevent this type of problem.
To find a place of employment, gather as much info about the person as possible to help you on your search. Do a Google search (sometimes the employer lists staff members on their websites). Also, Yahoo! actually has a free people search that sometimes shows updated employment info (go to Resources). Check with LinkedIn and other professional network places where the person's info might pop up. If all else fails, you can pay a company to do the search for you. Or better yet, just go ahead and sue them and find out the employment info during discovery. There are certain databases out there that can show employment info for a person if you have their ss# but i'm not familiar with them. Good Luck!

What Is A Felony Charge?
A Lot Of Laws Means Felony Or Something They Come Up With,
I Don'T Understand What It Means, I Need To Know.
A misdemeanor is a more minor crime that is punishable by up to one year in jail.
A felony is a crime that is punishable by time in state prison.
A felony charge will have a much greater impact on a person's life than a misdemeanor will.
Among other things, a convicted felon cannot ever purchase a firearm, will be much more highly suspect if there is a crime in the area, and will find it very difficult to get a decent job in the future.
There are various classes of misdemeanors and felonies, and the exact classification varies from state to state.
For example, here in Texas:
Class-C Misdemeanor = fine only, up to $500
Class-B Misdemeanor = Fine up to $2,000 and/or up to 6 months jail
Class-A Misdemeanor = Fine up to $4,000 and/or up to one year jail
State Jail Felony = Fine up to $10,000 and/or 180 days - 2 years in a state jail facility
(A state jail facility is basically a minimum security prison, regardless of the "jail" name)
Third Degree Felony = Fine up to $10,000 and/or 2-10 years in prison
Second Degree Felony = Fine up to $10,000 and/or 2-20 years in prison
First Degree Felony = Fine up to $10,000 and/or 5-99 years or life in prison
Capital Felony = life without parole or death penalty
