Social Security Disability can be a long, confusing process, but our legal team has the knowledge and experience to help you successfully navigate your claim. Whether you need to file your initial application or appeal a previous denial of your claim, the Kirkendall Dwyer Social Security Disability lawyers are ready to help you fight for your benefits from beginning to end.

Application Specialists

There are over 60 questions on both the Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) applications, so we have our trained Application Specialists guide our clients through each question to make sure every question is answered fully and accurately. Once an application is filed, it usually takes 2-4 months before receiving a decision.

Case Managers

Each of our clients are assigned a Case Manager at the beginning of his or her claim to use as a direct point of contact throughout the application process. We can communicate with our clients over the phone, through text messages, and email, making sure contacting our office is always easy and convenient. Our Case Managers make sure you have all the information you need every step of the way. Your Case Manager will also speak to the Social Security Administration on your behalf and request any medical records that may be needed to prove your disability.


Over 70% of applicants are denied on their first try, which means most claims require filing an appeal. Our Case Managers have filed hundreds of appeals for Disability claimants and know what to do to fight the government’s decision on your behalf.

Experienced Hearing Representatives

Most Disability claims are ultimately decided after a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge. Attending any type of court proceeding can be scary and intimidating, but hiring Kirkendall Dwyer means you’ll be represented by someone that has fought for hundreds of favorable hearing decisions. We make sure all our clients are fully prepared and as comfortable as possible when appearing before the judge.

Free Consultation

We offer a free consultation for anyone that would like to know if they have a viable disability claim. There is never any type of payment upfront, as we represent our clients based on a contingency fee. Our firm does not collect any type of payment unless we win your case. Our fees come from the lump-sum backpay settlement we recover on your behalf. Contact us today for your FREE Disability Consultation.
