Have you suffered an injury or developed a medical condition which prevents you from working? Does your child suffer from a medical or psychological condition which requires medical attention and support?

If you are unable to work due to a medical or psychological condition, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits.  If you are a Veteran, you may also qualify for Veterans Compensation if your inability to work is service connected.

Many Social Security disability claims are denied once, twice or even more times before benefits are finally awarded. Similarly, the application and appeal process for VA benefits can be quite lengthy and involved.  The application process, gathering of evidence, appeals, and deadlines can be difficult and confusing. Unrepresented claimants often give up on their claims after a denial or lose their chance to obtain benefits by missing important deadlines.

The Law Office of Aimee Dugas is available to assist you in your pursuit of disability benefits before the Social Security Administration and Veterans Administration.  With focused, personal, and professional attention, Attorney Dugas can help guide your claim through the application and appeals processes.

Ms. Dugas is available for a free initial consultation ( and, depending on the type of claim involved, often works on a contingent fee basis.  If you do not win, there is no fee.
