A Local Law Firm Dedicated to Personal and Attentive Service
While our law office does offer advice regarding filing an initial application, we also help in filing appeals for individuals in the Douglasville, Columbus and the West Georgia areas whose claims have been denied. If you are having trouble getting the work comp, SSD or SSI benefits you need, trust our firm to gather the appropriate information in order to persuasively present your case.
Many people require assistance with their Social Security claim. A majority of initial applications are denied, often due to technicalities such as failing to provide the correct documentation. Additionally, the emotional stress of how you are going to pay your bills and support your family, when you are unable to work, can take a heavy toll.
At our firm, we strive to ease your burden. Attorney Ellene Welsh has experience dealing with workers’ compensation, Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income claims. She understands how the process works and has worked with the people in the system for more than two decades.
Highly Accessible Legal Advocacy
Technically, Social Security claims can be handled by lawyers on a nationwide basis. However, since the process often takes approximately two years per case, and is complicated, it helps to have a local attorney you can visit with face to face. The same principle applies to workers’ compensation claims. Our firm offers a small, comfortable office where you can discuss your situation in detail. Your attorney will patiently listen to your circumstances and answer your questions, pursuing the benefits you need.
Because we are a local firm, we are able to represent you at hearings, maintain close contact with you and be actively involved in your case. We also know the physicians, clinics and other medical providers in the Douglasville, Columbus and throughout the West Georgia area. We will advise you about available resources for free or reduced-cost health care treatment or prescription medications. We know what you are going through, and we have the information to help you get the assistance you deserve.
