It's hard to get approved for Social Security benefits, even if you really are disabled. And Ohio is the fourth most difficult state in terms of obtaining SSD or SSI benefits.
If you've been denied benefits — like 70 percent of all applicants — don't get discouraged. Get a Social Security lawyer at Shifrin Newman Smith Inc.

There is no risk involved with hiring our law firm. There are no attorney's fees to pay unless we help you obtain benefits. We will even advance costs for necessary copies of your medical records. We are passionate about helping clients get the benefits they need.
Grateful for the opportunities we have been given, we feel compelled to give back to our communities. In 1998, we received the Ohio Legal Assistance Foundation's Pro Bono award for our efforts to help disabled children who had been cut off from SSI benefits.
We won't turn you away.
Some Social Security and Veterans' Benefits firms brag about having high "success" rates. But their rates are only high because they turn away clients who don't have strong cases. In other words, they "cherry pick." We don't. We do our best to help every single person who needs our help.
And we have a reputation for doing the impossible. Maybe your case isn't very strong and you were turned away by another law firm. That doesn't mean you should give up without a fight. Especially not when our firm may be able to get you the benefits you need.
Every client is unique. Including you.
Experience has taught us that no two people and no two cases are exactly alike.
With that in mind, we make sure that each person we help receives the individual treatment they deserve. We'll learn about you and your history, and then we'll come up with a solid strategy based on the facts. You might not always like what we have to say. But at least you can trust that we're telling you the facts you need to hear to plan effectively for your future.
