I’m attorney Paul Harding with the law firm Martin, Harding and Mazzotti – the Heavy Hitters – here in Buffalo, New York. Social security disability claims can be complex and time consuming.

Sometimes a simple misinterpretation of procedure can result in denial of benefits.

Many attorneys will not help you with a disability claim unless you’ve already been denied.

That’s not us.

The experienced team at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti is here to help from start to finish. We take the time to understand your unique situation.

We can help you work through the process, fill out the paperwork and get your claim started. In many cases a disability claim will be denied with the first application, but hope is not lost. If you’re just applying for disability or you’ve already been denied…

We will defend your right to get the benefits you deserve.

Children that have been disabled may also be entitled to SSDI benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA) if they have a physical or mental condition that seriously limits their daily activities, and is expected to last a year or longer. Our Social Security Disability lawyers are available to assist you with any advice you may need. Call our Buffalo office today.

Claims must be filed with the federal government and SSA, and include proof of the nature and extent of one’s disability. Even if the initial decision comes back and you are told you do not qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, one always has the right to appeal the decision.
