For most Americans, the disability process takes way too long and can become so discouraging they just choose to drop their claims. We use our experience with Social Security's five-step evaluation process to advocate for our clients and fight for their legal rights.
Medfield, Mass (PRWEB) May 3, 2010
Keefe Disability Law, a Massachusetts-based law firm serving clients throughout New England, is celebrating its 15th anniversary of practicing in the field of Social Security disability law.
Keefe and Associates was founded in 1989 by highly regarded disability attorney John Keefe and experienced Social Security disability paralegal Alison Rodin. In 1994, the firm began practicing in the burgeoning area of Social Security disability law, and later formed Keefe Disability Law to focus in this niche.
"We're proud of our 15-year track record of aggressively representing clients with their claims for disability benefits from Social Security," said Rodin. "For most Americans, the disability process takes way too long and can become so discouraging they just choose to drop their claims. We use our experience with Social Security's five-step evaluation process to advocate for our clients and fight for their legal rights."
According to Rodin, the firm emphasizes ongoing professional education for its five attorneys and six paralegals in order to ensure they are providing the most current advice to their clients. Next month, the firm will send a contingent of paralegals to the annual conference of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives in New Orleans.
"In general, Social Security disability benefits are for workers who are unable to perform full time work for at least 12 months," said Rodin. "It is also available to those with a terminal illness, without regard to 12 months. If your physical or mental condition prevents you from full time work, you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits."
The lawyers of Keefe Disability Law serve clients in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire. For 15 years, the firm has worked in the area of Social Security disability law. Keefe Disability Law has helped thousands of people in New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Massachusetts win the Social Security disability benefits they deserve.
