Estate Planning, Social Security & Veterans Benefits
At Jackson & MacNichol, we believe that a law firm can achieve the best results for its clients by focusing on a narrow set of legal issues. As the saying goes, a jack of all trades is a master of none. If you want to resolve your legal case quickly, it’s best to find a lawyer whose practice is centered on the areas of the law most relevant to your case. Many people who are facing legal issues often call a lawyer who is a personal friend or relative, but unless they are experienced with cases like yours, these acquaintances probably won’t be the best legal counsel for you.
More about what we do
The lawyers who work for our firm have strong academic backgrounds, extensive legal experience, and a proven dedication to helping others. We have built a team that is able to provide our clients with unparalleled expertise in the following areas:
- Social security benefits–Many people pay into the social security for years, only to get denied their benefits when they need them most. We are passionate about fighting against the social security bureaucracy to get out clients the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to which they are entitled. If you can no longer work because of a disability, our team of social security lawyers can help you get you the disability compensation you need.
- Veterans benefits–When you make the choice to dedicate years of your life to serving your country, you expect your country to give something back to you. But the Veterans Administration (VA) frequently denies benefits to deserving veterans. If the VA has rejected your application for veterans disability compensation, we may be able to successfully appeal on your behalf. We’ve helped veterans get compensation for a wide range of disabilities, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression.
- Estate Planning–It’s never too early to start planning for how to provide for your loved ones as you age and eventually pass. From writing your will, to setting up trusts for your beneficiaries, to designating medical power of attorneys, we have your estate planning needs covered. We also assist Maine families with asset protection, elder law issues, probate administration, and other issues that frequently come up in the estate planning process.
By focusing our practice on these three areas, our legal team is able to nimbly and effectively investigate, plan, research, and litigate our clients’ cases. Our offices are located in South Portland, but we have a proven track record of taking on veterans compensation and social security disability cases throughout the country. If you have legal needs in the social security, veterans benefits, or real estate planning areas, we are able to help you today. Call us at 555-555-5555 for a free consultation about your case.
