who we are

​​​​The Law Office of Elizabeth Burton specializes in Social Security Disability claims. We handle SSD and concurrent SSD/SSI initial applications and appeals. We can assist you with your case, regardless of how unique your diagnoses or situation, and help you increase your chances of success. Whether you are starting the application process or received a denial letter, we can help you navigate the burdensome process. We will begin with a free confidential consultation, to evaluate your claim and plan a strategy that best suits your case. We thrive on the success of our clients.

What is important about having representation for a Social Security Disability claim? Statistics show that roughly 2/3 of all initial applications are denied. Furthermore, claimants who represent themselves before administrative law judges are denied twice as often as those who appear with an attorney. The decision to attain a representative is solely your decision, but there are many ways we can help make your claim successful, such as filing an appeal on your behalf and requesting a hearing with an administrative law judge. While waiting for your hearing, which can take up to 16 months, we will gather medical evidence from your doctors, analyze your file, review determinations made by Social Security, outline the strengths of your case for the judge, prepare you for your testimony at the hearing, and ensure you receive all the benefits to which you are entitled.

We take pride in our success rate, as we are sincerely dedicated our clients and their needs. We strive to work hard for you while being compassionate and understanding.
