Our law office recognizes that any number of mental health conditions, even when properly treated, can be debilitating and leave a resident of Kissimmee or other parts of Central Florida unable to work in gainful employment that suits their skills, no matter how much they really would love to have and hold a job.
For over 25 years, we have represented people who struggle with a variety of mental illnesses with obtaining disability benefits through the Social Security Administration, either through the Supplemental Security Income or Social Security Disability insurance programs.
In addition to conditions like PTSD, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder, we also represent people who experience things that may be less obvious mental conditions, like depression or agoraphobia. We also represent people with ongoing neurological issues like ADHD or Asperger’s or other forms of autism, as these conditions can also keep a person out of the workforce despite their best efforts.
With any mental health case that we take on, our first step is to make sure we have a full understanding of our client’s condition and that condition, as well as its debilitating nature, is properly documented. We also take steps to organize a patient’s medical information in to a case the Social Security Administration will understand and, hopefully, be persuaded by.
Although of course we do everything we can to accurately document and present our clients’ cases so that they can get the benefits they need, we also recognize the importance of handling these sorts of cases with compassion and sensitivity to our client’s needs. After all, we recognize the last thing a person struggling with mental illness needs is stress, and we see it as our job to remove as much of that stress from the process of getting Social Security benefits as is possible.
