✓ “Inside” Knowledge
Mr. Hynes has the distinct advantage of having worked five years with retired Social Security Administration executives, disability adjudicators and Vocational Experts. In other words, he learned from those who worked “on the inside” of the system. This gives him a rare and unique understanding of the methods and processes of the SSA.
✓ Specialized Disability Experience
We are experts in Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and that is all we do. With over 16 years of experience, we have helped hundreds of fellow Georgians get the benefits they deserve.
Although we take many cases from the initial application, we specialize in handling appeals and hearings. In addition, we have extensive experience working with older workers (over age 50) and the special Medical-Vocational guidelines that are applicable to their claims.
✓ Personal Service
Unlike many large organizations, we have the ability to give your case the special attention it deserves. Mr. Hynes handles each case personally and makes it his priority to be available to you. We are able to offer this level of personal service because we only handle a small number of cases at any given time. We take the time to get to know you and your case; you are not a number to us. We will always treat you will respect and dignity.
✓ Local Representation
You benefit from our “home-field” advantage. We live and work in North Georgia and have been serving our regional neighbors for more than a decade. We have been working with the same SSA offices and judges for years. If your case requires a hearing, Mr. Hynes will likely have seen your judge many times and know how to best prepare you and your case.
✓ Affordable Fees
All fees in relation to a Social Security are regulated by the SSA. Virtually all advocates and attorneys charge the same fees. Most cases are handled on a contingent basis. There is never a fee unless you get approved and there is back pay. If you do not win your case, you will not owe anything. There are no upfront fees. Unlike many other organizations or law firms, we won’t charge you for obtaining your medical records and this can potentially save you hundreds of dollars. In fact, some advocates and attorneys may require you to reimburse them for medical records expenses even if your case is not successful!
