How can a disability attorney with experience in New Bern help?
Every case is different and whether or not you are approved for disability benefits depends on the specific circumstances of your situation, but a disability lawyer serving New Bern can help.
A recent survey shows only 34 percent of people who did not hire an attorney were ultimately approved for benefits. However, 60 percent of those who did hire a lawyer were approved.
This is a considerable difference.
Riddle and Brantley is committed to North Carolinians with disabilities and even has an NC State Board-Certified Specialist in Social Security Disability to help you win your benefits.
Many North Carolina disability judges are getting tougher. The SSA system is getting tougher. It’s extremely difficult, especially for a younger individual, to get approved for Social Security disability benefits.
Having an attorney on your side can increase your odds for a favorable outcome.
Attorney Scott Scurfield is a Board-Certified Specialist in SSD and is the leader of the disability law team for Riddle & Brantley. Scurfield earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and has been fighting for people with disabilities — including many in the New Bern area — for decades.
How does the process work?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects employees and applicants from discrimination in all aspects of employment. It also protects employees from retaliation when they seek to exercise their rights under the law.
The first step is to contact a Riddle & Brantley disability lawyer for a free consultation.
We have a convenient office in Jacksonville and frequently represent clients in New Bern and elsewhere in eastern North Carolina. We’ll even come to you if it’s more convenient.
Once the application process begins, you will talk to one of our paralegals or case managers to gather the information we need. We will then look at your case and determine whether we think you have a case for Social Security disability benefits.
We will gather information, including your medical records, evaluation forms and supporting letters from doctors, and provide that to the Social Security Administration and try to get you on track for a hearing as soon as possible.
In some cases, we can request an expedited hearing if the medical situation is very serious and life-threatening.

Can I handle this myself?
You’re not required to hire an attorney to help you seek disability benefits.
However, if you try to handle your Social Security disability case yourself, you’re statistically less likely to be approved.
It is worth considering hiring an experienced disability attorney to help you.
“To those people who are trying to get their disability, I hope they will look to Riddle & Brantley for help.”
