Social Security Disability And Supplemental Security Income Benefits

People seldom get Social Security Disability benefits on their first tries. It often requires getting an experienced and skilled lawyer on your side. Even if you have been denied once or denied for years, Howard M. Hyman, Attorney at Law, may be able to fix your problem and get you the benefits you need and deserve.

We have nearly 40 years of experience and a high rate of success in reconsideration appeals of Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims. Attorney Howard Hyman has handled hundreds of claims for residents of Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

You can meet with us at our offices in Philadelphia, Jamison or Cherry Hill. We can come to your home, hospital or nursing home if you cannot travel. Evening and weekend appointments are available. You can reach us at 215-725-1950 or you can contact our firm online. Free consultation.

Effective Applications And Appeals

Many people who have been denied benefits thought they could do it themselves, had help from a well-meaning friend or first hired a lawyer who is not familiar with Social Security Disability claims. Howard M. Hyman is familiar with the Social Security Administration and its complicated application process. He is also well-known and familiar with the judges who handle Social Security reconsideration hearings, and he knows from experience what they want to hear in your appeal.

Applications are denied for many reasons, from incorrect or incomplete forms to an emphasis on unimportant issues to problems with the applicant's mental illness. We are well-versed in medical treatments, psychiatric treatment, and common diseases and disabilities, including back injuries. In addition, we have experience with claims for people over 50. We will help you draft or redraft your application for the greatest chance of success.

Helping War Veterans

We have a special practice assisting war veterans and former POWs who are having trouble with the Social Security system and veterans benefits. Howard Hyman is known in the military community for his skilled work with Social Security Disability and SSI claims. We have handled many claims and appeals for clients with war-related disabilities, including combat injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Howard M. Hyman is active in war veterans groups, including the VFW, USO and Vietnam Veterans of America, and is proud to help veterans in any way he can. He can help veterans not only with Social Security, but also with other areas of law, including real estate, estate planning, immigration and business formation.

Vietnamese Refugees And Non-English Speakers

There is a strong Vietnamese refugee community in the Philadelphia area, and our lawyer works hard to help them with Social Security Disability matters. For clients not fluent in English, we have ready access to interpreters in Vietnamese, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese.

We will not charge any attorney's fees for our services unless we are successful in obtaining disability benefits for you. In the rare instance that we do not win your case, you would be charged only for our actual costs, usually less than $100. Even if we are denied on the first or second application, we will not give up on your case. We will file additional appeals as needed to obtain a victory.
