Utah Social Security Disability Benefits Lawyer
At the Salt Lake City law firm of Ward Harper, Attorney at Law, we help people throughout the north half of Utah, including Salt Lake City, Ogden, Provo, Orem, Logan, Vernal and Price, to establish their right to benefits under disability benefits programs run by the Social Security Administration. Contact our office for a free consultation about your case.
The Social Security disability claims process can present many hurdles for people trying to establish their eligibility for benefits. Most initial claims are rejected. Most applications for reconsideration of that decision are also denied. We represent individuals throughout the process. At the third stage of the process, we represent claimants in hearings before administrative law judges to prove their disabilities and right to collect payment. We usually win by the administrative hearing stage.
Success in SSDI and SSI Appeals
Our law firm has won 99% of our cases handled between 2001 and December 2008, about 782 claims in all. Usually, we win at the administrative hearing stage, but we have had to appeal a few cases to the Social Security Appeals Council or U.S. District Court. Attorney Ward Harper will personally represent you before the judge and make the decisions in your case, not an associate or paralegal.
No Legal Fees Unless We Obtain Benefits for You
We charge no attorney's fee while we are working on your case. Our standard fee is 25 percent of past-due benefits when we collect them on your behalf, up to a maximum of $6,000, if we win before appealing to federal court, as we usually do. Future benefits are all yours. You therefore pay nothing up front to benefit from our experience and skill.
Ward Harper has focused on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) cases for his entire career as a lawyer — even longer, counting his years as a law clerk for Utah Legal Services in the 1980s. With more than 20 years of experience and a proven record of success in Social Security benefits litigation, he can help you collect the benefits you need.

Every legal matter is different. The outcome of each legal case depends upon many factors, including the facts of the case. An attorney's success in past legal matters should not be relied upon to predict a successful outcome in your own case.
