The fact that the process for obtaining Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits is difficult is no longer news to you. To get the full benefits you need to make ends meet, it is in your best interest to find the best SSD lawyer in Wisconsin. With so many attorneys claiming to be the right choice for your SSD case, how can you separate the truly elite lawyers from those who are nothing but talk?

First of all, you need to come to grips with a simple truth: The best SSD lawyer for you may not be the best SSD lawyer for others in Wisconsin and that’s okay. You need to make a choice so that you can feel confident in them providing you with peace of mind as your chosen lawyer, as they set out to maximize the SSD benefits you need for yourself and your family. You need an attorney who has the right combination of skill, experience and personality.

Skills To Look For

A good SSD lawyer in Wisconsin should understand how SSD interacts with other areas of the law and how that can potentially affect your benefits. For example, SSD benefits can result in reduced workers’ compensation benefits. If you have multiple claims related to your injury or disability you need an attorney who is equipped to properly handle them all in a strategic way.

The right SSD lawyer for you will frequently present cases in front of judges. This ensures there will be no unwelcome surprises for the judge – or you – when your case goes before decision-makers. Speaking of surprises, the right lawyer for you will keep in regular contact with you about your case. Communication is key during such a complex process and you deserve to know where your case is at and what you can expect on the road ahead.

Knowledge of medical terms and a relationship with medical professionals can make all the difference in SSD cases. The best SSD lawyers have enough experience with SSD cases to let you know when it might be necessary to follow up with a doctor for further examination or treatment. They won’t give you a medical diagnosis but they can help you make sure you’re recovery remains on the right track.

What Are Their Past Clients Saying About Them?

Today’s legal consumers are blessed to have the reviews of past clients at their fingertips on multiple devices. Fire up your web browser or app and take a look at attorney reviews for SSD lawyers in your area of Wisconsin.

Are the reviews largely positive? Do any of the reviews speak to potential issues or concerns you have about your case or the attorney you’re researching? Taking advantage of online reviews is a good first step in getting a feel for any attorney in your area.

Other things to look at include:

  • Is the attorney truly located in your area? An attorney who understands how to navigate local courts and processes is critical.
  • What awards has the attorney received?
  • What professional organizations do they belong to?
  • Has the attorney ever been disciplined for ethical lapses or professional violations?

The answers to these questions combined with the rest of the helpful information in this piece should help you make an educated, confident choice about your SSD representation.
