Avard Law Offices employs two Board Certified Social Security Disability Advocacy Attorneys, certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. It is the only law office in the state of Florida that employs two board certified social security attorneys. Why is it important to hire social security attorneys who are board certified?

That dedication to achieving and maintaining a high standard of practice and to leveling the playing field for clients is shared by those who obtain National Board of Trial Advocacy certification.

Looking for a social security disability attorney in Cape Coral Florida?
Suffering from a disabling condition can be a detriment to your happiness and rob you of your ability to provide for yourself and your family. Fortunately for the residents of Cape Coral, Florida, people who are not able to work due to a disability have options. You may be eligible for disability benefits administered through the United States Social Security Administration (SSA) depending on your disability, income, and work history. In the alternative, you may be eligible for disability benefits depending on your disability and need, regardless of your income and work history. Such benefits can be a necessary lifeline.
Statistically, the vast majority of Social Security Disability (SSDI/SSD) and SSI claims are denied at the initial claim, and this typically happens regardless of whether or not the claimant is represented by a non-attorney disability advocate or even an actual attorney.
For this reason, the majority of SSD and SSI claims will need to go to a hearing in front of an administrative law judge (ALJ) before a claimant can hope to receive their disability benefits. It is at this level (an ALJ hearing) that having a disability attorney or non-attorney representative (or advocate) can really help win a claim. While a disability attorney or non-attorney representative can’t guarantee that a claimant will be awarded Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, a Social Security lawyer can ensure that a case will be handled properly prior to your hearing.
Two of the many benefits Avard Law provides to our clients are our knowledge and understanding of the Social Security application and appeals process, and our ability to develop and present medical evidence in support of your claim. Our principal attorney, Carol Avard, is an experienced trial attorney and the NOSSCR Board of Directors Eleventh Circuit Representative. Further, we are trained in SSA practices and procedures, and we understand the language that the SSA recognizes when evaluating a claim for disability benefits.
Need help with a personal injury case in Cape Coral?
Personal injury involves injury to an individual. This area of law allows a person who has been injured to sue in a private action, referred to as a “civil action” and also known in the legal community as a “tort action”. A “tort” is a wrong against a person. Any accident or injury against a person can constitute a tort – whether it be in a car accident, the use of a product, or the negligence of a professional.
Consulting experienced Cape Coral personal injury attorneys like those of Avard Law Offices can provide information on whether to pursue an action in court. If a loved one is killed in an accident or through negligence, the surviving family members would pursue wrongful death litigation, which is similar but separate from personal injury litigation. Personal injury can require attorneys from a personal injury-focused law firm to develop a strong case.
