What can we do for you?

What is my role of the attorneys at Freeman & Freeman? We are at your side assisting you every step of the way in what can be a very long, drawn out process. You will deal with us and not a staff member. While we have very capable legal assistants with whom you will probably speak from time to time, all meetings which you have in my office will be with attorney Stephan Freeman or Bonnie Freeman.

Most people are extremely frustrated and/or intimidated by the government bureaucracy of the Social Security Disability claim process. While most individuals can handle some aspects of the claim process, most often need assistance in with some of the steps along the way. This is how we can help you. We are there to assist you with the process described on our web page.

To go over what we do for you: WE gather all of your medical records and obtain certain types of other records, such as employment records, school records, personal statements from friends and reports submitted to your doctor by us and filled out for your Social Security Disability claim by your doctors. We continuously monitor the process to make sure that it is being handled by the Social Security Administration in as timely a manner as is possible. While we cannot control how fast they do things at the Social Security Administration, nor can we make them process your application any faster than anyone else’s claim, we can check on the status of your claim to be sure that it has not gotten lost along the way. We are also available for the Social Security Administration employees to contact should they feel that they need something additional which you might not have provided them.

In some instances, we try to persuade the Social Security Administration to decide in your favor at the first two levels of the application process. At the hearing level, we do our best to persuade them to decide in your favor without having a formal hearing, where appropriate.

If a formal hearing is necessary, you will meet with us before the hearing to prepare for the hearing. We are available for transportation purposes for attendance at the hearing (which can be in St. Petersburg, Tampa or Clearwater). The transportation is helpful to be sure that you are able to get to the right place at the right time.
