Do You Deserve Social Security Disability Benefits?
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides monthly income benefits to eligible disabled individuals who have been paying into the Social Security system for at least five of the last 10 years. If you have questions about your eligibility for Social Security Disability benefits, need assistance with filing a claim or are fighting a denial of your claim, consult with our experienced Social Security Disability Insurance lawyers before taking further action.
At Amick, Stevens & Gadness, we can help you get the appropriate benefits so you can provide for yourself and your family. It is daunting to take on the Social Security Administration (SSA) on your own, so consider enlisting the help of our experienced attorneys. Call 214-473-8383 to schedule a reduced-rate consultation.
We accept SSDI/SSI cases throughout the entire state of Texas.

If you are disabled and unable to work, you deserve Social Security Disability benefits. We will fight to get you the benefits you deserve. We can assist you by completing all the lengthy paperwork, gathering medical evidence, obtaining information for your claim, explaining the proceedings, and more.
The Social Security Disability claims process has five stages as follows:
- Application: The initial phase requires you to submit personal, employment and medical information. The information is then passed on to Disability Determination Services where a determination is made on your claim. More than two-thirds of initial applications are denied.
- Reconsideration: If your application is denied, you may apply for reconsideration within 60 days of receiving a notice of denial. The SSA approves only around 12 percent of reconsidered applications.
- Hearing: Presided over by an administrative law judge (ALJ), a hearing is the third stage of the process. This is an opportunity for you to present evidence and interview witnesses at a hearing, meaning that having an attorney can give you an advantage. We can offer you guidance and representation at this important point in time. We have vast experience with Social Security Disability hearings.
- Appeals council: If your claim is denied by the ALJ, you can appeal to the Appeals Council, which is again composed of ALJs who will review your case. Very few applicants succeed in their appeals to this body.
- Federal Court appeals
The Social Security Disability process can be lengthy and frustrating. We will provide knowledgeable, compassionate representation and fight on your behalf.
If your work history is not significant enough to qualify you for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, you may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income.
