I, Velma, had the good sense to have Mr. Harold Parker represent me with my Social Security disability claim. Mr. Parker and his wonderful assistant, Mrs. Miracle, helped me to complete disability forms and questionnaires. They were both consistently kind and helpful and most of all, knowledgeable. While the ordeal was lengthy and stressful, their assistance made it tolerable and worthwhile. I won my case in December 2011 after many months of waiting and I owe it to the diligence of Mr. Harold Parker. Thank you sincerely Mr. Parker.

I want to thank you for your help in securing and helping me get Social Security Disability benefits.You and your staff especially Connie always answered our questions on the many confusing letters I received from the Social Security office. Dealing with the Social Security Disability can be very frustrating, but thank you all for always being there to explain and unravel the many Social Security steps I had to go through. You all are a great legal staff. Again thank you so much for all you have done to help me get through this maze.

I was running out of strength when I found you and Connie.  You both saved my case!  Just getting through a day is hard for me.  My physical health is often unbearable. Your professionalism, sincerity, and kindness will never be forgotten.  I highly recommend your services.  I always search for the best in my endeavors and you delivered. Thank you for opening up and listening to my story.  I was never just a number with you.  I appreciate that so much.  May God continue to bless your practice daily, and your personal lives as well.

I would recommend Harold Parker to anyone in need of an attorney. He is very competent, knowledgeable and friendly. His fee was reasonable and I was pleased with the outcome of my case.


Murfreesboro, Tennessee Social Security Disability Lawyers Takes a Personal Interest in Social Security Clients

The Social Security disability claims process can be discouraging because the Social Security Administration can be a cold, faceless bureaucracy. Many people become confused and frustrated by the complex terminology and procedure. Our staff understand this frustration and we work hard to provide a personal atmosphere so that our clients feel comfortable and protected. We want to know and understand our clients, and we encourage them to call or stop by whenever they want. Some clients want us to handle everything; they prefer not to have to learn much about the system. That is fine with us, and we are happy to take care of them. Others want to be more involved and want to understand the Social Security rules and regulations. That is also fine, and we are also happy to explain the law and the issues.

How to Apply for Social Security Disability Benefits

Many people who have suffered a disability start by wondering whether it is worth it for them to apply for  Social Security disability benefits in the first place. Whether the Social Security Administration will grant your application can be a complicated matter that requires detailed analysis. But whether or not it is worth it to attempt the process will come down to whether or not you have an illness or injury that prevents you from being able to work, and this situation has either already lasted at least 12 months or is expected to last that long. Once you decide to go ahead with the process, you can either go straight to a Murfreesboro disability lawyer who handles initial Social Security filings, or you can start on your own by filing the claim yourself. If you want to file your claim yourself, you can either phone 1-800-772-1213 for an appointment, or complete your application on line at For suggestions about applying, see Tips for Applying.

What Happens If Your Social Security Disability Application Is Denied?

One of the important things that our disability clients need to know about the Social Security disability application process is that a high percentage of initial applications are denied. In fact, the Social Security Administration denies 65% of all initial disability applications nationwide. That means that the most important thing is not to give up when your application is denied. It is at the next step — the appeal hearing — that most cases are won. It is at this point that you definitely will be better served by having the help of a knowledgeable Murfreesboro disability lawyer.
