How Our Attorneys Help People with Disabilities in Lansing, Michigan

Many law firms try to cover a lot of practice areas. Our firm focuses solely on helping people who need disability benefits. We help our clients by:

  • Applying for Social Security disability benefits. When you meet with us, we will explain what you should expect from the SSD benefits application process and determine what types of disability benefits you may need. We will take the time to ensure your claim is thoroughly documented, which will improve your chance for approval.
  • Pushing claims through the process. Many applicants spend months or years waiting for their SSD benefits claim to be processed. We focus on providing claims reviewers with every bit of information they need. We want to prevent your application from hitting a snag. We will also keep track of your claim’s progress and push for updates every step of the way.
  • Appealing claims that have been denied. The majority of SSD benefits claims are denied the first time, including valid claims. Our attorneys can help you to navigate the complicated appeals process and fight for the benefits you deserve.
  • Standing up for veterans. Many veterans do not realize that they may be entitled to SSD benefits in addition to VA benefits. We will pursue every possible source of compensation for you. We have extensive experience with appealing denied VA benefits claims and low disability ratings.

“My daughter suffers from severe Bi-Polar disorder and other forms of mental illness. She initially applied for disability and was rejected. Ms. Erika Riggs gathered significant supporting information to represent us in my daughter’s hearing and provided additional support as requested by the judge. In court, Erika fought hard to win my daughter’s case and I believe her extra effort on our behalf resulted in the judge understanding the truth in my daughter’s case and gaining her disability benefits that are sorely needed. Without Erika’s knowledge of the process, outstanding presentation to the judge and required supporting information for my daughter’s case, we would not have succeeded. Erika has always kept us informed of pertinent issues and has been totally responsive to any of our requests for information. Thank you Erika you did a great job!!!” – Dennis.
