Social Security Disability Attorney Ogden

Filing a Social Security Disability claim can be complicated…Here are a few things I do to help

I am pleased to announce that I will now be accepting clients with Social Security Disability claims from Logan to Provo, including Ogden.

I will continue to work with people with family law matters, but I am expanding my practice to include those who are disabled and cannot work.

As always, I provide a free consultation for people to help explain the qualifications for disability and to educate them on the process for being approved for benefits.  The process for being approved for benefits is generally broken down into three phases: 1) the Application phase where the person initially applies for benefits; 2) the Reconsideration Administrative Hearing where an applicant who has been denied benefits seeks to be reconsidered for benefits but is denied again.  A hearing is then requested to determine whether the denials were proper; and 3) the Appeal where the applicant appeals the decision made at the administrative hearing.  I will work with people at any phase of the process to ensure the application is presented in the most effective manner.

If you are unsure whether your family, friend, client, or acquaintance will qualify for Social Security Disability, here are a few basic guidelines for determining if they might have a valid claim:

  • Cannot work due to a disability
  • Have been (or are expected to be) disabled for at least 12 months
  • Are under the age of 65
  • Have worked at least 5 of the last 10 years (SSDI) or have limited income (SSI)
  • Have a doctor that can provide medical evidence to support the disability claim

I promise to provide each social security disability client with the same high quality representation I provide to my divorce and custody clients.  If you have questions about Social Security Disability, or know someone who does, please have them call me at 801-668-2490 or check out my website at
