For The Disabled And Their Families
The Law Office of Teresa M. Meagher represents people who have made the difficult decision to seek disability benefits either from the Social Security Administration (SSA), the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) or from an insurance carrier.
Both the SSA and the VA administer disability programs. It is possible to receive disability benefits from both programs, but the criteria for receiving benefits is different with each agency and you must file separate applications. Also, the VA can pay benefits for partial disability while SSA only pays benefits to people with impairments so severe they prevent any kind of gainful work activity.
Unfortunately, the process of applying for disability benefits can be confusing because of complicated paperwork and difficulty communicating with agencies or insurance companies. The help of a skilled lawyer can make a big difference to your chances of success.
Cases are selected for representation based upon a careful evaluation of the likelihood of obtaining a successful result. Our office caseload is intentionally limited in order to provide the necessary individual attention each matter deserves. We treat all clients with compassion and give you personalized, professional legal representation.
