You’re a neighbor, not a number

If you live in Waukegan – or anywhere in the North Chicago suburbs – and get Nash Disability Law to help with your Social Security Disability case, you’re getting a lawyer with a deep commitment to our community and neighbors.

Not only did Tom and Ann Nash live in the northern suburbs for 20 years, three of our attorneys live here now.

It’s a real struggle when health problems make it impossible for you to work. We know your case isn’t just about your benefits – it’s about your life.

Your financial stability, your independence and your dignity are at stake. This is personal, so you deserve a lawyer who takes time getting to know you in order to help you win benefits.

At Nash Disability Law, this is our mission.

We opened our Chicago office three decades ago, and in all, we’ve helped thousands of people from the North Chicago suburbs get benefits. So whether you’re from North Chicago, Zion or Gurnee, the odds are we’ve helped a neighbor of yours.

Hard things happen to good people. But we Chicagoans are tough. We stand up for each other.

How having a local lawyer helps you

With some out-of-town firms, you’ll only see an advocate on the day you have a hearing with a judge. And sometimes, that person is not even a lawyer.

That’s not how we operate. We’ll meet you ahead of time so we can better understand your case – and help you get ready and feel confident.

When you work with a local law firm, you get the advantage of local knowledge.

At Nash Disability Law, we know how the local system works:

  • We know the people, neighborhoods and suburbs of Chicago.
  • We know the local clinics, hospitals, doctors, social service agencies and the people who work in the Social Security offices.
  • We know the job experts and medical experts Social Security pays to testify about you.

Give us a call.

Social Security judges in Evanston

The Social Security Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) in Evanston oversees appeals for people who live in Waukegan and across the North Chicago suburbs:

  • In early 2017, the administrative law judges in the Evanston office were approving benefits about 52 percent of the time.
  • The Chicago judges approved benefits 42 percent of the time.
  • The Illinois state approval rate was 44 percent.
  • Nationwide, it was 45 percent.

It should be simple to apply for Social Security Disability benefits, but it takes a lot of work and patience. It can take 17 months to get a hearing with a judge in Illinois.

When so many people are getting turned down, it makes sense to get a professional to help with your application or appeal.

Statistics from the Social Security Administration have shown your chances of winning Social Security Disability benefits are better when you have a lawyer.

You don’t pay any fee unless you win. If you live in the Chicago area and need Social Security Disability benefits, contact us today.
