Why Hire GDA?


People with disabilities are routinely denied.

It is easy to become discouraged and intimidated and give up after the first denial.  Don't let this happen!  According to Social Security, people represented by a disability advocate are more likely to receive benefits.  Guardian Disability Advocacy has won benefits for clients at the initial, reconsideration, and adjudicative law judge appeal levels.

No two cases are alike - each client is unique.

Services include a customized strategy to fit your case from the very beginning.  You are represented and advised throughout the entire process.  GDA works with your doctors to obtain the appropriate medical records and develop compelling arguments in support of winning you benefits.

Guardian Disability Advocacy is a small non-attorney firm.

Because our firm is small, you won't be treated like a number.  Clients deal directly with their representative at all times during the process of obtaining benefits.  GDA understands this can be a very stressful life-changing process.  You are important and can expect caring and compassionate service.

Helping you make it through the process.

Receiving Social Security benefits can be a lengthy process.  There are several organizations to help people both emotionally and financially that are listed in USEFUL LINKS.
