Bowman Disability Law and the O'Neil Disability Group are combining to form the O'Neil and Bowman Disability Group

Social Security Attorneys in Norfolk, VA

We have represented thousands of disability claimants throughout Virginia and North Carolina for over 25 years.

When you go to work every day, you’re paying into the Social Security System. However, if you become disabled, you may not be able to earn a living wage. In these situations, it’s important you have something to rely on so you can take care of your health and everyday expenses. This is why Social Security Disability benefits are made available, although it can be difficult to obtain them.

At O’Neil and Bowman Disability Group, our Norfolk Social Security Disability lawyers are committed to assisting people through every step of the claims process. For more than 25 years, Erick Bowman has worked extensively on filing and submitting disability claims to the Social Security Administration (SSA). In that time, he’s proven to be one of the most effective disability lawyers available.

What are Disability Benefits?

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are federal funds that are distributed to individuals who cannot work due to a disability. SSD benefits include Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Obtaining these benefits makes it possible to lead a healthier, happier life. Our compassionate legal professionals are qualified to represent clients through every step of the SSI or SSDI process, including appeals.

Attorneys for SSDI in Norfolk, VA & North Carolina

SSDI is a benefit program funded by the Social Security System. You may receive SSDI if you become disabled and meet the criteria put forth by the SSA which determines eligibility. SSDI is only awarded to individuals who have earned work credits by paying Social Security taxes on their income.

Lawyers for SSI in Norfolk, VA & North Carolina

SSI is distributed to individuals who are ineligible for SSDI. SSI is a needs-based program funded by the U.S. treasury and is only awarded to those who have extremely limited income and resources. To qualify for SSI, you must be disabled, blind, or 65 years of age or older.

Why Hire A Disability Attorney

Applying for Social Security Disability is a notoriously long and complicated process, which results in most initial disability claims being denied. However, with a dedicated attorney on your side, you are more likely to be approved when you first apply for benefits.

Filing for either SSDI or SSI can be a daunting process. At O’Neil and Bowman Disability Group, our experience allows us to guide you through the many steps that come before you can receive payments.

The SSA has strict requirements for proving disability that all applicants must adhere to. If an application fails to meet even a single requirement, the SSA will deny the claim. With our help, you can rest assured that your application will include all of the information necessary to give you the best chances of receiving the aid you deserve.

We’ll Stand
by You

Most people aren’t accustomed to the stressful experience of appearing before a judge. However, doing so is part of the process of filing for disability benefits. Still, national disability firms rarely prepare clients for this step, and also fail to provide the personalized attention that O’Neil and Bowman Disability Group guarantees. When you reach out to our firm, you WILL connect with a lawyer before the date of your hearing. During the meeting, our Norfolk Social Security Disability attorneys will guide you through the application process and explain what your hearing will entail. We are confident in the results we can deliver, and we’re happy to support clients any way that we can, even those with more complex cases.

Why Choose Us

When you work with our Norfolk attorneys to file a claim, we’re with you every step of the way. From the initial application process and gathering medical evidence, through to the Appeals Council if necessary. We understand how intimidating it can be to file for disability, and that’s because we’ve helped thousands of people just like you get the financial support they need.

We also offer FREE initial case evaluations. Our attorneys speak directly with clients during these evaluations and don’t rely on automated systems. It’s important for us to maintain open, clear communication with clients to gain complete understanding of their unique situations. We also pride ourselves on handling difficult cases other firms often turn away, such as children’s cases.

As a disability law firm, we’re also prepared to accommodate those with mobility issues and transportation limitations.
