When you need a social security disability lawyer, finding one in Southern Louisiana and Mississippi shouldn't be difficult. You can opt for one of the many large law firms that exclusively focus on disability claims. Most of them have thousands of clients to handle at a time, and if you choose one of them, you likely won't have the full attention of your attorney before your hearing. The people handling your case may be familiar with the situation, but you're likely to speak to a different person every time you contact them.
Alternatively, you can choose a local law firm that effectively understands social security disability claims and is ready to give your case full attention until you get your benefits. At Leavitt & Meunier Law, you're not a case number — you are human.
At the office, you'll meet your lawyers, Melanie and Adam, who will consider every aspect of your case with the care it deserves. You'll have their full attention as they understand the facts of your claim to ensure they file a strong case.
If an ad uses the word "Advocate," they aren't lawyers and may not handle your case effectively. Don't be fooled into picking an advocate from one of the big lawyer referral sites online. In many cases, even inexperienced advocates pay to feature more frequently and rank higher on sites.
In addition, advocates have limited knowledge and experience of law and are not even licensed to practice law. However, the nature of social security allows them to represent clients and earn money like actual attorneys.
Melanie and Adam are trained and experienced lawyers with more than two decades of experience representing social security disability clients in Mississippi and Southern Louisiana. They specialize in working with these jurisdictions' social security and disability systems for people looking to get their disability benefits as fast as possible.
If you're trying to get your social security benefits, you probably now understand the many challenges of working with inexperienced lawyers. It's difficult to get your claim approved if your attorney lacks the expertise and knowledge to deal with the complexities of the legal system.
Quality representation is key to getting your claims approved. At Leavitt & Meunier Law, full-service social security disability lawyers provide quality hands-on local representation to clients with cases like yours. We are a local law firm with an adequate understanding of the local Social Security Offices, disability examiners, hearing offices, and judges across Southern Louisiana and Mississippi.
In addition, our lawyers have been personally involved in presenting multiple clients before judges in Baton Rouge, Alexandria, Metairie, Hattiesburg, Houma, Gulfport, and Hattiesburg for over 20 years.
In many large law firms, Social Security Disability claims are bundled collectively and addressed through the same process to avoid waste of time on one claim. When you make the first call, you often speak with a call screener who analyzes the information you provide to determine whether the report merits a case. If they aren't satisfied with the information you provide, your call will be cut even before you speak to an actual attorney. Even if your claim merits a case, it will be put in an assembly of other social security benefits claims by an assistant attorney who doesn't have any information about you apart from your name and the claim presented.
However, at Leavitt & Meunier Law, we understand the importance of providing individualized services to our clients. Every claim is different, and each client deserves personalized attention to understand the facts of their claims. Our experienced Leavitt & Meunier Law lawyers will guide you from the beginning to the end. Either Adam or Melanie will closely monitor your medical records and work with you to resolve any problem before scheduling a hearing. This ensures everything is in order when it comes time for a judge to hear your case.
In addition, we set time to answer any questions and work with you to develop a winning strategy for your case. You can visit our offices in Mandeville, Metairie, and Baton Rouge to begin the legal process.
