Social security disability is a Federal program administered by our national government in Washington, D.C. Because it is a national program, any licensed attorney can appear in any SSA field office for a disability hearing. The social security disability attorneys at MLF Legal handle these cases nationwide.
It’s important to be comfortable with any lawyer you hire. After all, they are your voice in a supremely important matter. Some people think they have to hire a local lawyer for a disability appeal. While that may be true with some areas of the law (like criminal defense), that’s not the case with social security disability. Most of your interaction with the SSA is over the phone. And in today’s world, the hearings are being done by judges appearing by video from all over the country. So, it’s not about who you know, it’s about how good you are.

At MLF Legal, our social security disability attorneys understand that communication is important. That’s especially true when dealing with long distance clients. Our attorneys and staff are able to provide a free consultation by phone or video. We can exchange documents by email and fax. We can even set things up for you to sign with a finger on your phone.
