The Joyce & Bary Process:

Here at Joyce & Bary both of our experienced lawyers will work together on your case, but you will only be charged one fee if we win. After an initial telephone interview, you will talk to the lawyer who is going to handle your case. If you have filed a disability application, we will obtain a copy of your file and work with you to develop your case. During the initial stages of your case, you will interact with our expert team members to build the foundation of your case.

Jim and David understand the importance of developing your case in the early stages of the disability process. Our team includes Terry Newman an experienced vocational and disability consultant. Terry and our team members will help prepare and submit your paperwork to the Social Security Administration.

If your claim is scheduled for hearing, Jim and David will skillfully analyze your file and prepare you for the hearing. After this meeting our team will continue to gather your medical evidence and attempt to obtain opinion evidence from your medical providers. We use the same software and technology utilized by experts that offer testimony in disability hearings.
