Have you filed or even considered filing a claim for disability benefits with the Social Security Administration? If so, you probably already know that the Social Security process can be very complicated, confusing, and frustrating for disability applicants. To receive benefits, you must convince the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you meet their strict definition of total disability.

You also need to present evidence sufficient to convince the SSA that:

  • You cannot do the work you did before
  • You cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition
  • Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death

In order to give your claim the best possible chance of satisfying the SSA’s definition, you need to present compelling medical evidence and comply with a complicated set of procedures established by the SSA.

At the Allen Law Firm, our competent disability lawyers are experienced at gathering and organizing the medical evidence you need and can guide you through the Social Security maze. The firm’s disability law practice represents clients throughout Monterey Bay Area in seeking and obtaining disability benefits. In our 20 years in dealing with the SSA, we have known that the SSA rejects the vast majority of claims the first time they are presented. If this happens to you, our skilled lawyers can also help you through the process of appealing the SSA’s initial rejection.

As soon as you even begin to think about filing a disability claim, it is never too early to have one of our disability attorneys evaluate your claim. We can help you get all your “ducks” in a row, as well as make sure they all “quack” the way they should to put you in a position to recover disability benefits. Some claimants come to us just before their hearing in front of a judge, asking for us to represent them. Often, we recognize their case file is too thin for the judge to decide favorably for them, so we may try to get their hearing postponed until we can get more substantial evidence to solidify their claim.


Our Monterey disability lawyers take the time to explain your rights and answer your questions. Since you are the one who ultimately has to make the most important decisions about your claim, it makes sense that you be as educated about the process as you possibly can be. You can rest assured that we will stay involved with you and be available to answer your questions in a timely fashion. Though this is not the practice of some lawyers, we promise to be diligent as your representation.

At the Allen Law Firm, our lawyers are not paid unless you win and their fees are capped by the Social Security Administration. Furthermore, when you receive a favorable decision, SSA pays our legal team directly, so you do not have to pay even a cent.

We also provide a free consultation to discuss your case when you call (831) 901-3901!
