Social Security Lawyers


Florida Social Security Attorney Serving Tampa Bay

(877) 831-2297

According to government statistics, the Social Security Administration denies more than 70% of first-time claims and 82% of claims that are appealed for reconsideration. However, more than half of the cases heard by judges are approved.

At Carlson & Meissner we understand how frustrating the Social Security appeal process is. Using persistence, knowledge of the system, and our experience, we pledge to work diligently to secure the benefits to which each disabled worker is entitled. If you have a Social Security Disability (SSD) claim, our Social Security Disability attorneys can help you get the money you deserve.

The process of applying for and appealing the denial of Social Security Disability benefits can be overwhelming for the average person, and if your initial SSD claim is denied, you only have 60 days to file an appeal. The experienced Florida Social Security Disability attorneys at Carlson & Meissner have the experience to successfully pursue your claim.


If you have questions, we have the answers. Learn more about the following Social Security topics below:

If an unfavorable decision is received from the Office of Hearings and Appeals, the attorneys at Carlson & Meissner are prepared to go forward with an appeal to the Appeals Council. If the council denies your appeal, you have the option to file an action in the United States District Court. During the lengthy appeals process we may request that the Social Security Administration expedite your claim if you qualify as being in dire need.

Our lawyers represent Social Security Disability and workers' compensation claimants on a contingency basis. This means that you will not owe us attorneys' fees until and unless your claim is approved.
