Timothy E. Fairbanks, A.D.R. understands that when people hire a representative, they are often experiencing a very stressful situation. These people need someone who cares about them. Fairbanks Disability makes sure our clients not only receive high-quality legal representation, but also the support and resources they deserve. Stop by or call our office for a no-cost consultation and case evaluation. Even if you don't hire us, we may be able give you information that can help guide you down the right path. Just because a case can't be won right now doesn't necessarily mean that it can never be won. Some claimants re-apply several times before getting a favorable decision. It could be something simple that is keeping your case from moving forward. There are technical (non-medical) reasons and procedural errors that could be holding your case back. We can spot these issues and help correct them.
Tim belongs to a highly specialized class of legally trained professional non-attorney reresentatives.
