Disability Appeals Lawyer


Tim Hamill: When you worked, Social Security took money from every paycheck. But now, when you can’t work, your claim for disability benefits has been denied. I’m Tom Bothwell. Whether you were denied, or need to apply, I have helped more people win Social Security Disability benefits than any other attorney in Central Washington.

If you’re denied Social Security Disability benefits,

don’t be discouraged. Most people who apply are denied. It’s a FREE call to talk to our local disability appeals lawyers. If you don’t win benefits, it costs you nothing.

Important! Once you’re denied benefits, the clock starts ticking. Don’t wait too long. You can miss the deadline to appeal.

Your hearing is the most critical stage in your case. Your disability appeals hearing before the Administrative Law Judge is your first chance to present evidence in person. It’s crucial that you and the evidence be well prepared. We strongly recommend you get a disability attorney specializing in appeals to help before and during the hearing to present the most effective case.

Our attorneys can:

  • analyze your Social Security file
  • prepare your case and set the strategy
  • gather additional evidence from your doctors and medical providers
  • make legal arguments, prepare your testimony
  • question witnesses (for your side)
  • cross-examine any medical and vocational experts who testify at your hearing.

Social Security often brings in expert medical witnesses to provide testimony. They can hurt your chances of winning benefits. We know how to counter these experts. We can fight for your rights, and we can win.

Most people win benefits with an experienced disability lawyer.

According to Social Security’s own statistics, people win benefits more often when they have a disability lawyer than when they don’t. Since there’s no fee if you don’t win benefits, the decision to get legal representation is an easy one.

Tom Bothwell can help at all four levels of Social Security’s appeals. Whether you need to apply for benefits or were already denied, contact us to talk about your case. If you don’t win disability benefits, there’s no fee to you.
