Getting approved for Social Security Disability benefits isn’t easy when you try to do it on your own.
The process involves thousands of rules from the Social Security Administration (SSA), getting information out of the health care system and sometimes even talking to a disability judge about why you should get help.
It can leave you feeling buried under deadlines, documentation and complex forms to fill out.
This is additional stress on your shoulders at a time when you’re already dealing with health problems and financial struggles.
For hardworking people in Green Bay—whether you work in manufacturing, shipping, transportation, warehousing or any other of our local industries—help is here.

Once you decide to apply for disability benefits, your attorney can make it easier for you, lifting the burden of phone calls, forms, legwork and compiling evidence.
An attorney in the Green Bay area is well equipped to help you navigate local Wisconsin Social Security offices, disability judges, health clinics and doctors.
Geary Disability Law has helped thousands of people for over two decades.
If Social Security denies your application, they’ll likely inform you by mail. If you disagree with their decision, you’ll need to file an appeal within 60 days of the date you received their notification.
The first level of appeal is a hearing in front of an administrative law judge, and you’ll want to have an experienced disability attorney representing you—someone who can set a solid strategy for your case and present it in a clear and compelling manner with all the supporting documentation required.
