The Benefits You Need to Keep Going
You don’t want to be in this spot. But here you are.
Your health issues have forced you out of work, and now you don’t know how you’re going to pay all those mounting bills. Social Security Disability benefits can be a lifesaver for you.

Qualifications for Disability in Texas
Social Security’s Definition of “Disabled”
You went to your doctor and he said you were disabled. Yet, the Social Security Administration can still deny you. Why is that possible?
According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), you’re considered to have a qualifying disability if:
- Your health issues make working impossible.
- You can’t switch to another line of work.
- Your health will force you out of work for at least a year.
You’ll need to have ample evidence to prove each of those points, too. What to gather:
- Medical records
- Hospital reports
- Statements from friends, coworkers and doctors
If you don’t present any of that evidence, or even if you present it incorrectly, you could be denied.
The good news: our experienced legal team knows the process. We know what—and how—to present your claim in order to win benefits.
If you’re in Houston, or anywhere in Texas, and need Social Security Disability benefits, call us today.
Get a Lawyer Who Knows the System
The SSA operates its own legal system for decisions and appeals. It’s a complicated web of formalities, paperwork and hearings that can leave an outsider confused and stranded.
It’s why you need someone like Victor Makris on your side.
Victor and the attorneys at his firm have been fighting for the rights of his fellow Texans for decades. We’ve helped Texans win thousands of disability claims.
We make it a priority that a Makris Law Firm attorney will meet you face-to-face to discuss your case. Some lawyers will only meet you at your hearing, when they have to be there.
We know you’re going through a tough time. You wouldn’t be seeking legal help if everything was just fine. Let us take some of your burden away by sorting out your claim.
You focus on feeling your best.
