East Tennessee Social Security Disability Attorney

With Offices In Athens And Cleveland

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits is a very complicated and often discouraging process for individuals and families. The majority of people who file disability claims receive denials, and many of them give up because they do not know where to turn for help.

At the law office of Douglas W. Hutson, Attorney at Law, we have spent over 30 years helping disabled East Tennessee residents obtain their rightful benefits. We can help you, too.

In order to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, you must meet a number of strict criteria. The Social Security Administration must deem that you are disabled and unable to work due to injury or physical or mental impairments. And, you must have paid sufficient FICA taxes. If you have not been in the workforce long enough to pay adequate taxes, you may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Helping The Disabled Receive Social Security Disability Benefits Since 1983

Our founding lawyer, Douglas Hutson, was born and raised in Athens, Tennessee. Since earning his law degree from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville in 1983, he has upheld a commitment to helping people with disabilities get the benefits they need and deserve.

Our firm does not charge clients any fees until we win benefits for them.

He has achieved an outstanding record of success during his many years of practice. To put it simply, Mr. Hutson knows disability law and he will use that knowledge to support your case.

You do not need to hire a non-lawyer disability representative or a national, faceless law firm that you may have seen on a television commercial.

When you hire our local law office, Mr. Hutson and his small staff will work closely with you and your doctors to prepare your case. You will enter your disability hearing with an experienced and accomplished attorney by your side, who will understand your needs and your rights, and has the confidence to fight for them.
