About Nolan & Shafer, PLC 

Social Security Disability Lawyer in Muskegon

Unlike many law firms that have offices across the nation, we work, live, and are based in West Michigan. Nolan & Shafer, PLC has a physical location in Muskegon. We often make house calls for housebound clients. We are always available to set up in-office appointments, and we will meet you face to face. As your representative, there will only be one lawyer handling your case from start to finish. Also, we only handle a limited number of cases to make sure each one gets the full time, effort, and attention it deserves.

Many other disability advocate law firms that are nationwide have lawyers who work out of their homes and are not allowed to have face-to-face contact with clients prior to their hearing. Even more firms do not have lawyers who are located in Michigan. With a majority of these firms, you will not even speak to the attorney until 15 to 30 minutes before your hearing. You deserve better.

Whether you retain Nolan & Shafer, PLC or another law firm, you are much better off hiring a local lawyer to handle your case. There is a wide variety of fine Social Security Disability attorneys in Muskegon who handle these types of cases.

To ensure your case is properly handled, we suggest you ask the prospective attorney the following questions:

  • Is your primary area of focus in Social Security cases?
  • How many Social Security cases have you handled throughout your legal career?
  • Will I have the opportunity to meet you in person before my hearing?
  • How frequently will you review my case to ensure all required steps are being taken?
  • Do you have a physical location in Michigan?
  • How many cases do you handle concurrently?
  • Will we be able to prepare for my hearing in advance?
  • Will my case only be handled by a legal assistant or paralegal?
  • If my hearing is unsuccessful, will you appeal my case?

If the answer to any of these questions is, “no” or if the answer is unsatisfactory, you may want to speak with another law firm.
