Not disabled? You still need to understand disability benefits

Social Security disability (SSD) is there for people who get hurt and can't work to bring in an income. It's a way to make ends meet when you truly have no other options.

Non-Adversarial Lawyering

In an adversarial system, two advocates represent the interests of competing parties before a judge or impartial tribunal. The tribunal observes the dispute from above the fray to remain impartial.

By contrast, the non-adversarial system used in civil law allows the judge to directly investigate and interrogate witnesses before rendering a decision.
