Mental Disability Claims

Houston, Texas Mental Disability Claims Attorney

Mental disability is just as real as physical disability. Sometimes it is just harder to see. Because of this, applicants for Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) who file claims due to mental illness or disability frequently have a more difficult time getting approval for the benefits they need. At the law office of David Dopkin, Attorney at Law, we can support you through the SSD or SSI appeals process and advocate on your behalf.

Contact us today for a free telephone or office consultation to discuss your need for a mental disability claims lawyer in your appeal for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income. Attorney Dopkin has been handling these claims since 1991. He understands the challenges you are facing.

Committed to Getting the Income You Need

Mental disability covers a wide range of conditions, such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, brain injury and delayed learning. We thoroughly evaluate our clients’ mental health history and medical records to develop an understanding of how their mental disability has impacted their lives. We meet with friends, relatives and other individuals who can provide us with the insight and information necessary to persuade the Social Security Administration (SSA) to provide our clients with the benefits they need.

With such extensive experience handling mental disability claims, we know the necessary steps and information necessary to present an effective case for SSD or SSI benefits. We work with our clients to develop the pertinent information in such a way that they are comfortable presenting it to the SSA.

We also understand that your need for health care and support does not stop while your SSI or SSD appeal is pending. Our firm is able to provide referrals to a number of state or local mental health agencies that can provide you with free or reduced-cost treatment. We are able to make referrals for shelter or a place to stay if your disability and unemployment have put you out of a home.

If you or a loved one is suffering from a mental disability and needs SSD or SSI benefits, we can help. Trust our commitment to providing clients with the skilled advocacy they need throughout every stage of the appeals process. We will not back down in pursuit of the benefits you deserve.
