Lincoln, Nebraska Social Security Disability Lawyer

We can help

We’ve helped hundreds of disabled Nebraska residents navigate the lengthy and frustrating appeal process and to fight for their disability benefits. Whether you are applying for the first time, are reapplying after a denial, or are appealing a rejected claim, we’re here to provide the guidance that you need to get approved for SSD. Let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you.

Areas of expertise

We can represent you in matters involving Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income, and Social Security hearings. We’ll assist you in every step along the way, acting as a resource to answer your questions as your claim moves through the complicated Social Security disability process, and providing you with compassionate, competent representation.

No fee unless we win

We understand the financial and emotional hardship of having a painful, debilitating illness or injury that forces you to stop working. As your attorney, we will represent your case on a contingency basis. That means that we do not charge an attorney fee unless you win your case and obtain the back benefits that you need and deserve.

Knowledge and experience

Filing for Social Security Disability can be frustrating and confusing, and many applicants are rejected on the first application. But an experienced attorney can make a real difference. Brett McArthur practices almost exclusively in the area of Social Security hearings and appeals. With over 20 years of experience in this field, he will work with you to find the best strategy and will stay with you until your case is successful.

What our clients say

The advantages of working with the Law Office of Brett McArthur

We offer knowledgeable, experienced assistance >

Besides the stress and difficulty of navigating the maze of Social Security policies and regulations by yourself, the process of submitting a claim can be a long and arduous one. But since we handle Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) cases every day, we are thoroughly familiar with the procedures and rules of the Social Security Administration’s Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR), and we can give you assistance during every step and can even help speed up the process.

We're a local law firm >

We are familiar with the Social Security offices in Lincoln and Nebraska, and with local doctors and medical providers. We even know the concerns and proclivities of individual judges in the area, which is something regional or national law firms may lack.

We'll prepare you for your hearing >

We will explain the disability hearing process and let you know how you can accurately describe your disability and its effects to best assist your case. We may even walk you through a mock hearing so you know what you can expect when you enter the hearing room.

We provide comprehensive legal services >

If you are on workers’ compensation or are receiving some type of short-term or long-term disability benefits, you may also be able to collect Social Security Disability benefits. We’re skilled at navigating the relationships between Social Security, workers’ compensation and long-term disability plans, because it’s important to coordinate benefits between systems—such as SSD, WC, and long-term disability policies—in order to avoid possible offsets or credits.

We don't quit >

We provide aggressive representation at all stages of the legal process and, upon mutually agreement, we can appeal your case to the Appeals Council and, if appropriate, to Federal Court.

We charge no fees if you don't get benefits >

Our representation is on a contingency basis, which means that if you do not win your case, you will pay no fee. The risk is ours, and our intention is to make certain that the benefits you deserve flow to you.


We can guide you through the

entire process of

social security claims and appeals

We are committed to providing experienced and aggressive legal representation to help you obtain the Social Security benefits you deserve, regardless of what stage of the application or appeals process you may be in.

The process for obtaining Social Security disability benefits can be a long and confusing one, but we will work by your side through the entire proceedings, answering your questions, preparing you for your hearing, appearing with you to represent your interests and present your disability case to the judge, and doing everything we can to ensure you get your benefits.

Have you been denied?

Don't despair!

Many disability claims that are initially denied ultimately get approved with a little persistence and diligence on behalf of your lawyer. However, if your Social Security Disability claim has been denied, it is important to act quickly. Don’t get discouraged and give up, because there is only a 60-day window during which you can appeal after your claim is denied.

If you need to apply for disability benefits, reapply for benefits, or appeal a decision, we will give you a free no cost and no obligation evaluation. Fill out our contact form or call us now at 402-421-8333 and we can begin assisting you immediately. Don’t delay! It could cost your benefits if too much time passes.

You can rely on us to determine what you are eligible for and to be your strongest advocate. We understand how to best deal with the Social Security Administration, and you can rely on us to navigate through the bureaucracy to ensure you receive the full benefits you need to maintain your quality of life despite your injury or disability.
