Gardberg & Kemmerly handles children's disability claims for Supplemental Security Income. These claims are filed by concerned parents who worry that their child is struggling in some particular area and hope that increased income could get them the help they need - for example, additional or specialized medical treatment or additional school tutoring. By far, one of the most common impairments I see is ADHD. Many parents want to know if their child with ADHD can qualify for SSI.
Many clients ask me why I became a Social Security Disability Lawyer. I think this is a good question as I fear much of the general public gain their understanding of who lawyers are via the news, television shows, and movies wherein lawyers have big egos and represent infamous or glamorous clients in high profile and dramatic cases. My simple answer to the question is that I have always wanted to assist and fight for deserving people who need legal help and do not have the money, resources, or knowledge to take the steps necessary to obtain the help they so desperately need.
There are plenty of reasons to file for Social Security Benefits. Unfortunately, most people are usually turned away or discouraged after they have been denied. However, do not let that deter you from either appealing or reapplying.
