Social Security Disability Lawyer


Social Security lawyer Gordon Gates helps people with Social Security disability and SSI claims in Maine and New Hampshire.

The Social Security Disability Insurance program (SSDI) and the Supplemental Security Income program (SSI)
are federal programs intended to help people who are unable to work due to their medical condition.

Unfortunately, many people in Maine and New Hampshire are initially turned down when they apply for disability benefits, even though they actually do qualify.

If Social Security has denied your application for disability benefits, don't give up!

If you are applying for Social Security disability or SSI, or if you have been denied benefits, you should consult a lawyer who specializes in Social Security law.

A Social Security disability case is very different from other legal matters. The laws, regulations and procedures for Social Security disability and SSI claims are extremely technical, and require detailed legal knowledge.

Talk with a Social Security disability lawyer who knows the process, the paperwork, and the very specific Social Security disability rules and regulations.

There is no "up front" cost for Gordon Gates to take your case. There is only a fee if and when you receive Social Security disability benefits. Again, there is no fee unless you win your case and receive benefits.


I frequently assist clients who have been out of work 6 months or more with the initial application for disability benefits. This process can be done over the telephone, with the assistance of a lawyer, or in person in my office - whichever is more convenient for you.

You can telephone or email attorney Gordon Gates, or ask for a free Social Security claim evaluation.
