Social Security Law refers to the series of laws and regulations that govern the Social Security program. It was establish to help protect, or secure, members of society from bearing too heavy a burden when catastrophic events occur. The intention was that no one individual would have to shoulder the weight of being disabled in such a way that they can no longer provide for themselves. It was also designed to help supplement the income for the elderly, who are also incapable of earning a full living wage past. Since Social Security began 80 years ago, it has evolved and changed. We here at The Law Office of Fred S. London, P.C. have been dealing with Social Security Law for the last 25 years, nearly one-third of the time that the system has been in place. Our expert lawyers and staff are here to help clients in the Baltimore and surrounding areas navigate the complexities of Social Security Law and get the assistance they deserve.

An Attorney is not required under Social Security Law

There is a high rate of initial denial, and not having your paperwork professionally prepared can increase the risk of being rejected at the first step in the process.
