I was referred to Riddle & Brantley, by a friend who had filed for Social Security. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had heard so many bad stories about filing for Social Security benefits.
When I talked to Susan Riley, Paralegal at the Raleigh Office, she made me feel comfortable from the onset about the filing process. I submitted all the paperwork to her and she even requested all records needed to proceed. Scott Scurfield was the attorney assigned to the Raleigh Office.
Susan kept me posted frequently as the process went on. If I called or e-mailed her, she replied quickly. She reassured me that the process takes time and I put my trust in her. That trust was valued! I can honestly say that the aggressive work of Mr. Scurfield and Ms. Riley was the major factor in my benefits being awarded.
I would recommend that if you are trying to decide whether to hire an attorney or handle the process yourself, the answer is clear: hire an experienced law firm! My choice clearly is Scott Scurfield and Susan Riley of Riddle & Brantley!
