Wilmington Disability Lawyer
Get the Social Security Disability Benefits You Deserve
Our disability lawyers represent clients living in the Wilmington North Carolina area who cannot work due to injury, illness, or a disease or disabling condition.
If that describes you, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits, and our disability attorneys may be able to help you get them.
The consultation is free and you won’t pay any attorney fees unless we win your case and you receive disability benefits from the government.
Call (910) 889-4064 for a free case review with a Wilmington NC disability attorney.
We can help you whether this is your first time applying, or if you’ve previously been turned down because the Social Security Administration has not yet concluded that your problems are severe enough to keep you from working.
Our North Carolina Social Security disability team of lawyers, paralegals, and case managers may be able to help, whether you live in Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Leyland, or anywhere else in Southeastern North Carolina.

According to a recent survey, only 34 percent of those who did not hire an attorney were ultimately approved for benefits, but 60 percent of those who did hire a lawyer were.
