The disability claims process can prove to be a long and painstaking one, even more so if you are not assisted by a competent disability attorney Salt Lake City, Utah. Not only are there a lot of eligibility requirements, but not all disability attorneys are experienced enough to convince administrative law judges of their clients’ right to collect payment. And yet there are a lot of disability attorneys and firms parading their services. How can you effectively choose among them?
A disability attorney Salt Lake City, Utah who offers free consultation already has an edge among those who don’t. Always you should try to seek as many counsels as you can and not rush to a decision. Among the firms/attorneys who offer this service in Salt Lake City are David W. Parker, Kenneth P. Dobbs, Burridge and Tillman, BohmMatsen etc.
Disability attorneys need to be aggressive front-liners who have actually managed to win Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims with transparent success rates. It is also notable to consider the years they are in practice, in the field of disability claims. For example, Ward Harper, a disability attorney Salt Lake City, Utah, boasts of a 99% success rate in Social Security benefits litigation since January 2001 and more than 29 years of practice in the field. He is also clear in what he can do to his clients, and these are to: explain eligibility for benefits, aid in satisfying criteria for disability evaluation, and establishing the right to these benefits through appeals and hearings.
A period of disability lasting for at least a year is required to apply for disability claims. It could be from physical, chronic, or mental impairments. It can be difficult to establish rights to these claims since the law does have strict criteria that are implemented. A good disability attorney Salt Lake City, Utah would make your rights as well as your responsibilities in filing for disability claims clear to you; and there are a lot. The most important thing is to gain sound legal counsel and assistance of a competent professional in organizing your extensive files that would serve as evidence during court hearings.
Getting representation from the best disability attorney Salt Lake City, Utah that you can afford is not only a luxury but a necessity in applying for disability claims. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to prepare a huge sum even before you get your benefits. Many firms offer a contingent fee basis and many appellants opt for this. Many lawyers offer services so that you don’t have to pay any legal fees until the time that they could obtain a settlement for you.

Hello and welcome to this week’s National Right to Work legal action update regarding employees forced to fight both the NLRB and the UAW to exercise their rights to be freed from unwanted workplace representation.
Earlier this week, Brenda Lynch and Anna Marie Grant filed a motion to intervene with the National Labor Relations Board in an ongoing case involving a United Autoworkers union that formerly represented employees in their workplace. Lynch and Grant are receiving free legal aid from NRTW Foundation staff attorneys.
Previously, majority of the factory workers, at a Florence, South Carolina battery manufacturer, presented their employer, Johnson Controls, with a withdrawal petition declaring that they no longer wanted the union’s “representation. ” Afterwards, the employer withdrew recognition of the UAW.
In response to the employer’s withdrawal of recognition, UAW requested, and received from NLRB General Counsel, a formal complaint against Johnson Controls for its acquiescing to the employees’ wishes.
In response to these developments, Lynch, who with several other employees helped to organize the withdrawal initiative, submitted a decertification petition for a secret ballot election to formally remove the union to the NLRB.
However, the NLRB, at the UAW’s urging, blocked any secret ballot vote that would determine employees’ true desires giving its own issued complaint as the reason.
After the denial of their decertification, Lynch and Grant moved to intervene in the formal complaint case against Johnson Controls, and are seeking full participation in that case to protect their (and all other employees’) workplace right to refrain from union representation.
The case has been set for trial on November 16, 2015. If granted intervenor status, Lynch and Grant will have the power to testify, call and examine witnesses, and present legal and factual arguments to protect their and other employees’ rights.
Thank you for watching this news update. Video Rating: / 5
