Texas Social Security Attorneys
Applying for and receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits should be a simple matter. If you qualify for benefits, you should receive them.
It is rarely that simple.
Every day, people with valid Social Security Disability claims are denied benefits, leaving them unable to work and without a source of income. Don't let that happen to you. Contact the Social Security attorneys at Morgan & Weisbrod, LLP today.
Benefits Denied? Don't Give Up.

The Social Security Disability Pioneers
We are pioneers in the field of Social Security Disability law. Our six Social Security Disability attorneys have more than 70 years of combined experience helping disabled people in Texas receive the disability benefits they deserve. We'd like to help you, too. Please contact our law firm today for a free consultation.
You will not be charged any costs or attorney fees unless we win your claim. The Social Security Administration sets attorney fees in these cases. So it won't cost you more to be represented by experienced lawyers who know Social Security law inside and out. Why not hire a Social Security Disability firm that has been helping disabled people with all types of impairments for more than 30 years?
Even if you consulted another attorney and your application was denied, we still may be able to assist you. We are one of the few Texas law firms that represents clients at every level of the application and review process, from the initial claim, through four separate levels of administrative appeals plus two possible appeals to the Federal Courts. We have successfully represented former clients of mass marketing Social Security representatives such as Binder and Binder, Allsup and Associates, etc.
Dealing with a federal bureaucracy like the Social Security Administration is a challenge under any circumstances. When you are suffering from a disability, it can seem impossible. Our attorneys can take the worry out of the process. Let us make the system work for you.
