Yes, I represent people in Children’s SSI cases.

Not many lawyers do these type of cases.

They are difficult cases to win.

Maybe because Judges do not like the cases, or they are used to seeing adult cases that focus on ability to work.

In a child’s case you must prove marked limitations in 2 areas out of 6, or extreme limitations in 1 area out of 6.

The areas cover physical limitations and mental or emotional limitations.

Just being in special education classes is not enough.

You must show that the child is at the extreme end of the spectrum within the special education grouping.

Examples might be extreme classroom problems, serial suspensions, extreme drug abuse, several hospitalizations for mental problems, or severe asthma.

Questions about children’s SSI cases? Feel free to call Illinois Social Security Disability Attorney Dirk May at 309-827-4371.
