STEPHEN H. OLDEN: You should have representation for help with your claim. It's a complex system. There's a lot of regulatory law. There are medical records. It's a mix of both medical and legal practices. And we know how to make the medical fit with the legal and present a good argument to Social Security.

MICHAEL J. MOONEY: Everybody thinks if they get a letter from their doctor that says he can't work, then they're going to win their case. And Social Security routinely disregards those letters because it doesn't consider the doctor competent to say whether the patient is disabled or not. They say only we, Social Security, know that. Social Security likes to say people don't need attorneys. But the people who go into these cases without attorneys tend to lose. And the ones with attorneys tend to win.

STEPHEN H. OLDEN: Without an advocate, sometimes people get caught up in the complexity. And they don't understand what's needed. Or they understand it. But it's too late to put on the best case. We want to put on the best case for you. And that's why we're here.
