Our Social Security Disability Lawyers Can Help

Often, lawyers who represent Social Security disability claimants simply file their application for them. If the application has been filed, they merely submit forms to become the claimant’s representative and then do nothing else on the case until the hearing (typically a year or longer).

At the Skelton & Stevens Legal Group, however, we begin working on your claim as soon as the application is filed because that is what it takes to achieve a favorable outcome. Our goal is to get your claim approved at the earliest possible stage and, if your claim must go to a hearing, to get you that hearing as soon as possible.

From beginning to end, one of our attorneys will personally handle your claim. Other national firms or companies that represent Social Security disability claimants operate as call centers, where an attorney never looks at your case until shortly before a hearing. Some of these firms or companies even contract your case to a local attorney, who is paid a small amount to simply attend your hearing.

Based in central Arkansas, the Skelton & Stevens Legal Group prioritizes ongoing communication and delivers the personalized services of a local firm. In short, we will do everything we can to get the best decision from Social Security in the shortest possible time.

Our Team Can Help You Through The Bankruptcy Process

Bankruptcy is a legal option for those who are overburdened with debt. By including the right to make bankruptcy laws in the U.S. Constitution, the founding fathers recognized the importance of providing a means for the discharge of debts for those who are unable to pay.

The institution of bankruptcy is even emphasized in the Bible, in which all debt must be forgiven every seven years. Today, bankruptcy is the first step toward financial freedom for hundreds of thousands of people every year.

At the Skelton & Stevens Legal Group, we offer bankruptcy services because many of our Social Security disability claimants are experiencing severe financial hardship. We are deeply committed to developing comprehensive solutions to our clients’ legal and financial crises.

In short, we offer the services you need to overcome some of life’s most overwhelming challenges.
