Applying for disability can be overwhelming
Full Representation For
If you are suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, currently being treated and ready to apply for social security disability, Cooper Law can help.
We handle initial applications, reconsiderations and hearings.
Whatever stage you are in with your social security disability claim, we’ll take it from there. Whether you are just starting the process, or you have already applied and been denied, contact us for an initial consultation to determine next steps.
Applying for disability with attorney representation increases your chances of approval by 48%.
For those receiving public assistance, we may be able to offer representation for free. We also partner with the Department of Human Services (DHS) to provide SOAR advocacy for clients experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.
What is SOAR advocacy?
SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) is a national program designed to increase access to the disability income benefit programs administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA) for eligible adults and children who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness and have a serious mental illness, medical impairment, and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder.
*SOAR-eligible clients are represented for free.
How it works: the application process is the same as our other Social Security Disability claims, but we spend a little more one-on-one time with each client to understand your personal story and the unique challenges you’re facing. Trained advocates from Cooper Law will walk you through the application process.
A: The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program pays benefits to you and certain family members if you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) pays benefits to disabled adults and children with limited income and resources.
All clients apply for both at the same time, to get you the best possible result.
A: You can work, but there are strict limits on income once you receive disability benefits. Working above the limit can result in losing your benefits.

Very pleased with both the communication and quality of service that I got. Nothing was sugar-coated, and it turned out well for me.
Working with Cooper Law was great. They did everything right and everything they should have.
