Why hire an attorney?

Because I want to get my claim approved…

There is absolutely no requirement that you retain counsel to represent you in your Social Security claim. You always have the right to represent yourself. However, self-representation usually not the best option. Claimants with experienced representation win their cases more often than those who are not represented.

Because there is no time for delay…

Get it right the first time.  Applying for SSDI and SSI benefits is a long and arduous process even when no errors are made.  If mistakes are made it can drag the process on even longer.  Don’t represent yourself and risk waiting longer than you have to get the benefits you are owed.  Call RLG today and schedule a free consultation with one of our experienced social security attorneys.

Because we get your family covered as well…

Yes. Your family may qualify for benefits based on your work. There are specific criteria that must be met before your family members are eligible to receive benefits.  For a free detailed consultation call RLG.

Because I don’t want to navigate through mountains of complex paperwork…

The application process for social security is complex.  The process involves a lot of dense legal work that is predicated on numerous eligibility requirements and federal regulations.  In addition, strict deadlines must be followed.  Even the slightest error can hold up the process or result in a denial.  Applying for disability benefits is a daunting task for a healthy individual; it is a nearly impossible endeavor for someone already battling severe limitations.  Let the Social Security attorneys at Romanow Law Group guide you on your path to approval.

Because we don't get paid unless you're approved…

No matter how long the process lasts, we do not collect any fees unless you are awarded benefits. This means that you will be represented by our legal team throughout the entire process without ever having to worry about paying legal fees. In fact, you never have to worry about paying RLG because once you are approved we are paid directly by Social Security. When you approved for SSI or SSDI benefits, the fee is 25% of the past due social security benefits. After the day you are approved, none of your future payments, not one single penny, goes towards paying your legal fees. All future payments are yours to keep. If you need help with your SSI or SSDI claim call RLG and get the assistance you need.

Because I am unfamiliar with the evidentiary requirements…

Medical evidence is the basis for the determination of disability.  Each person who files a disability claim has the burden of providing medical evidence supporting the position that he or she has a medical impairment(s) and that the severity of medical impairment(s) prevents the claimant from working.


The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a list of “acceptable medical sources” that may provide documentation of a claimant’s impairment(s) and the severity of the impairment(s).  The single most determinative piece of evidence in many cases comes from the claimant’s treating medical providers.  At RLG we will work with your treating physicians to put on the strongest possible claim for you.


Claimants who are unfamiliar with medical terminology, reviewing medical records and analyzing medical opinions face difficult challenges demonstrating their impairments.  That is just the initial stumbling block.  A far more difficult endeavor is fitting a claimant’s impairments into the disability criterion established by the Social Security Administration.


The social security team at Romanow Law Group has experience analyzing medical records and opinions.  We are familiar with the evidentiary requirements that must be met to prove your disability claim.  Romanow Law Group knows what SSA is looking for when evaluating your claim and will assist you in evidencing your impairment(s) and level of severity in a manner that highlights the key components required by the government for approval.
