Worthley, we are prepared to counsel those whose claims have been denied.

If you suffer from depression, bi-polar disorder, or another mental health disorder and received an initial denial of your Social Security claim, contact the Law Office of Todd R. Worthley, in Portland, Oregon, today. We will provide legal guidance based on extensive, successful experience.

Social Security Disability Attorney Helping Clients Obtain Benefits

Attorney Todd R. Worthley has extensive experience dealing with Social Security disability matters for those who are seeking benefits based on a mental illness, such as:

  • Depression so severe that it significantly compromises a person's ability to function in daily society
  • Bi-polar disorder that prevents a person from being able to work while in the extreme depression state
  • Social anxiety, causing the sufferer to have panic attacks or other dangerous effects when around a lot of people, such as in an office
  • Schizophrenia, preventing someone from distinguishing between illusions and reality

Mr. Worthley will carefully assess your situation and determine why your claim may have been denied. He can help gauge your likelihood of success in resubmitting the application, and assist you in properly documenting your illness if it is in your best interests to apply for Social Security benefits again.
