Glen Allen Social Security Disability Lawyers

SSD Lawyers

Are you unable to work because of a debilitating condition or injury? Then you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. To qualify for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration, you must provide medical documentation that demonstrates a severe mental or physical disability that has kept you from working over the last 12 months.

Our Glen Allen Social Security Disability lawyers provide a full range of services to residents seeking disability benefits they desperately need to cover daily expenses and make ends meet.


Our firm takes a hands-on approach to help clients understand their options, navigate the SSD application or appeals process, and seek the full benefits they are entitled to.

Compassionate Lawyers

Did you know?

You must have paid taxes for at least five of the last 10 years to apply for Social Security Disability (SSD), and prove that your condition or illness makes it impossible to hold down a job.

Without knowledgeable legal counsel, it can be challenging to get a disability claim approved. In fact, more than 63 percent of SSD claims are denied the first time around. That’s where Rutter Mills can help.

Our Glen Allen lawyers for Social Security Disability will assess your eligibility, gather pertinent documentation to strengthen your claim, and help you navigate the application process. If you live in Glen Allen and need sound legal advice, we invite you to reach out for a free case review.

How is disability defined by the SSA?

The Social Security Administration works under the assumption that families can depend on insurance coverage, workers’ compensation, and savings to help make ends meet when a breadwinner is disabled for short periods.

Social Security Details & Requirements

The SSA only pays benefits for total disability, not partial or short-term impairments. There are strict criteria that must be met when seeking SSD.

  • You must have a severe impairment that restricts your ability to do basic tasks such as standing, lifting, sitting, walking and remembering
  • You have proven functional limitations that make it impossible to perform your job
  • You are unable to perform other work because of your condition
  • Your disability has lasted continuously for 12 months or is expected to result in death
  • OR your condition is considered ‘medically equivalent’ to criteria outlined in the regulations

In our experience, certain medical conditions and impairments are more likely to get approval for SSD than others.  If your doctor believes your condition or illness will limit your long-term prospects for gainful employment, get in touch with Glen Allen Social Security lawyers at Rutter Mills as soon as possible.

Our Glen Allen Social Security lawyers help clients obtain the medical documentation needed to increase the chances of SDD approval on the first try.

If your claim is rejected, don’t despair. You have the right to appeal within 60 days of receiving the denial notice. Our attorneys can help prepare you for the hearing process before an administrative law judge, taking the burden off your shoulders.

I was injured in a accident & was rejected by 2 law offices that said it was my fault even though I was hit from behind. Rutter Mills got the job done. They had police testify and a witness. I was impressed with how thoroughly they got results. If you want a true dedicated firm that get you results this is it - hands down - Rutter Mills!

Nena A

Rutter Mills law firm did a wonderful job with my case. Attorney Porcaro and his paralegal, Kamilah White, assisted me a great deal, kept me informed and optimistic about my case. They helped me feel prepared and confident to testify at trial. Another plus was I did not have to pay anything until my case was won. I highly recommend this law firm for any one else who may need assistance.
