Welcome to Hardy, Duff Moore, & Lerway, LTD, LLP, a law firm that cares enough about you to fight for your rights. Our staff and team of attorneys are dedicated to helping you work through the bureaucratic process.

At Hardy, Duff Moore, & Lerway, LTD, LLP, you’re not a CASE…you’re a person. We help you keep your dignity as we assist you in proving your disability. Though our practice is primarily in ARKANSAS and TEXAS, we accept clients out of those areas. With over 50 years experience in our attorneys we have represented thousands of clients.

Proving disability can be difficult because you are dealing with the government and all of its red tape. Though we can step in at any level, we prefer to assist you from your initial application through the denials and appeals that most applicants must endure. Because of our experience, we KNOW what is required to get your application approved. Most people are denied on their initial application and usually on their appeal from that denial. The third step after the first two denials is a hearing before a judge. We make the request for a hearing, gather your medical records and ensure they are sent to the judge.

We don’t solely represent your CASE in court; we help you to prepare for your hearing by providing you with information on:

What To Expect At Your Hearing
Rules About Answering Questions During Your Hearing
What To Do After Your Hearing

There is NO CHARGE FOR CONSULTATIONS and NO FEES ARE CHARGED UNLESS YOU WIN. We represent you before the judge and help you prepare for the hearing. If you should be denied by the judge, there are still further appeals that can be made to Social Security's Appeals Council. Our firm has also filed civil actions in U.S. District Court and appealed to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in select cases.

If you are unsure about your legal rights, let Hardy, Duff Moore, & Lerway, LTD, LLP take your complicated issue and explain it in an easy-to-understand manner. Contact our offices in Houston or Austin today. Call today at:
