Houston Social Security Disability Attorney • Long-Term Disability Insurance & ERISA Claims • VA Disability Benefits
With a population of 2.31 million people, Houston is the largest city in Texas and the fourth largest in the United States. It is the most ethnically diverse metropolitan area in the nation, with at least 145 language spoken by residents and 90 nations with consular representation in the city. The city is home to many cultural institutions and exhibits in its Museum District, which draw millions of visitors every year. Known as Space City thanks to its prominent role in the history of space exploration, the city is home to NASA’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center.
The energy industry plays a large role in the Houston economy; however, health care, biomedical research, and aerospace and manufacturing are also big business in the metropolitan area.
Unfortunately many Houston residents struggling with disabling conditions are unable to take advantage of the economic opportunities offered by the city. Houstonians who suffer from disabilities that render them unable to work are often instead fighting an uphill battle against private companies and government entities to obtain the disability and social security benefits they are entitled to — and need to survive.
The Houston disability attorneys at Marc Whitehead & Associates help victims of denied disability claims. Our law firm provides superior legal services to disabled workers in the greater Houston area and throughout the Texas Gulf Coast.

Board Certified Texas Social Security Disability Attorney
The Social Security Administration denies 70% of disability benefit applications the first time around. In most cases, these applications are denied because they simply lacked the information the SSA needed to make a correct determination.
Our Houston Social Security disability attorneys have extensive experience handling Social Security disability claims. We know the requirements to get the Social Security Administration to approve disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income. We help disabled workers win their claims at all stages of the Social Security Disability appeal process.

Houston Attorney Marc Whitehead Answers Disability Claim FAQs
Clients often ask us this question. Are there lawyers who specialize in representing people in disputes with insurance companies and government disability benefit programs? Who can represent individuals who have been wrongfully denied or delayed benefits because of disability?
This depends on the kind of disability claim one has:
— For long-term disability (LTD) claims, you need a lawyer who is skilled in disability insurance law with a solid background in personal injury law and deep understanding of disabling medical conditions.
— A Houston lawyer who is Board Certified in Social Security Disability Law would be your best option if you are seeking Social Security Disability (SSD). Since most LTD applicants must file for SSD benefits as well, your lawyer should be familiar with both areas of law.
— VA disability claimants are advised to hire a lawyer who is an accredited veterans claim attorney and can represent them at all levels of the VA disability system, including the VA Regional Office, the Board of Veterans Appeals, and the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
The good news is that Mark Whitehead & Associates has experience in handling all three types of disability claims, as well as the right people to handle the job. Our Houston-area attorneys can fully assist you in any disability case.
Yes! Our Houston law firm provides professional application and filing services for both private long-term disability claims and group claims sponsored by employers. You probably have questions about your application for LTD benefits if you have started it. The claim form itself is often the biggest problem with many claims. You may be failing to provide enough information, or you may provide incorrect information, almost guaranteeing that your claim will be denied. Do not risk a denial because of an incomplete claim – too much is at stake. For your best chances of a successful outcome, we can help you build the strongest possible claim. To learn more, visit the long-term disability claims page.
Often, our Houston clients cannot make it to our office. We can work with you as well remotely as we can in person. Please be assured that we will still be able to assist you to the fullest extent possible.
No matter where you live, no matter what your disability is, we can help with disability applications, appeals, and any part of the process that is confusing or frustrating for you.
A Strong Adversary Against Unfair Insurance Claim Denial
