Our Mission

Our mission is to represent the disabled throughout Wisconsin and nationwide.

Why Hire Us?

The Social Security appeals process can be very confusing for someone unfamiliar with it. Our staff, however, sees the process as providing several levels at which a claim can be won. The attorneys in our office are familiar with the "administration" and we know how to obtain benefits. When you hire a skilled Social Security attorney, he or she will begin preparing your case for Federal Court review at the earliest possible step. Obviously, Federal Court review is not the path that we want to take, but, if we are able to convince the administrative law judge that he or she will be overturned at the Federal Court level (or the Appeals Council level) if they deny your claim at the hearing, then the judge will be reluctant to deny such a claim. The statistics are clear, claimants with attorneys are much more likely to receive benefits than those who go through the system without representation.

What is unique about Forward Disability Attorneys is that we are truly advocates for our disability clients. We are not only concerned with getting them benefits (and eventually Medicare), but we also do everything we can to get them necessary medical treatment while their case is pending. While prosecuting your claim we will provide assistance in obtaining all types of local, state, and federal medical assistance. We always provide this additional, vital assistance at no cost to our disability clients. If you have been denied social security disability benefits, then please feel free to contact our office for a free consultation.
