Social Security Disability Attorney Fort Myers 

If you are suffering with an injury or illness that keeps you from working, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits. If you cannot stay gainfully employed and it is affecting your life negatively, it is a good idea to check into receiving disability benefits. Millions of Americans are faced with the hard choice of filing for disability. We understand that this is not an easy choice. President Roosevelt wanted to protect American workers and their paychecks by creating the Social Security Administration in 1935.
