Honesty and Integrity
Lisa Douglas' office was amazing in helping me walk through the Social Security process. There are not enough words to describe how thankful I am for Kristy. She walked with me step by step. This team worked with respect and integrity.

Excellent service
This firm is the best! They kept in contact with me, kept me updated, and won my case. Everyone I talked to was very polite, professional, and always had an answer, or took the time to find one. I highly recommend this firm, and wouldn't hesitate to hire them again. Thanks again, and thanks for winning for me!

Professional, Communicative, and Caring
As a family going through the disability process for the first time, we were prepared to have to fight every step of the way. Because of Ms. Douglas and her team, we merely had to complete the requests on time and we didn't feel stressed as expected. Ms. Douglas and her team kept us updated, they were professional, patiently answered our questions, and cared about us. She is clearly a 5-star attorney and her team is incredible. You are on this site, most likely, to find an attorney. I'd tell you to choose Lisa Douglas--you will not be disappointed! Outstanding work, communication, preparedness, and fight. I highly recommend her.

I tried in 2019 on 2 different times, to try and get disability and was turned down. I was very frustrated, because I was giving them all the information that was ask for, so I had given up, because that’s a lot of work. I saw an advertisement that stated, if you have been turned down we can help you. I called the office, and started the process again. I am very proud to say I was approved!! The paralegal you will speak with is fantastic!! You stay on top of your part and let them do the rest. Highly recommend. They helped me greatly.

Awesome Disability Lawyer
I had been denied disability twice and a friend recommended Lisa Douglas. I am so thankful for all of their hard work on my case. Kristy in her office helped me get all updated doctor records. Lisa herself prepped me for my court case. She was wonderful with her opening statement and basically covered everything they needed to know about my case. I was finally approved my disability. I couldn't have done it without them. I highly recommend Lisa Douglas Law Firm for you disability case.

Social security attorney extraordinaire
After my injury, i was floundering. My Doctor’s advice was to “file for disability because you will not likely work again “. That was tough to swallow, but I realized that he was right and that I needed help. Google gave me a range of attorneys, so I talked with a few. Lisa Douglas was easy to talk to and didn’t try to shine me on about anything, which was refreshing. She was professional and walked me through the steps. The scary interview with a judge was made easy due to her prep and presence. I would recommend her and her team anytime. On a scale from 1 to 10, she gets an 11.

YOUR BEST CHANCE !
Social Security Disability applications should be handled by a knowledgeable and experienced attorney from the very beginning and the FIRST time you apply! I can't stress this too much! Legalese is a language that they speak fluently. And you need that. Don't waste your time trying to do it yourself. Let them do it for you the FIRST time in order to get your best chance of succeeding. You can actually hurt your chances by doing it yourself and not letting them do it the FIRST time. AND you are wasting your time even if you do speak legalese. Because there are many factors involved. You will benefit greatly from their experience and have the best chance to succeed. This word to the wise should be sufficient!

Best Lawyer who know both sides of the field
Lisa and her team didn’t miss a beat! They had all the answers when I felt defeated and they made sure I got what I deserved after waiting for so long! She wasn’t afraid to take on the courts not the medical teams. This is who you want to fight for your case!

Lisa Douglas
Lisa was very sincere and understanding about my medical disabilities, she never allowed me to feel like a client or insecure. From the moment she took on my case she fought hard to win, she didn't stop there, even though the judge granted my disability the ss office denied me. Even though we were in the middle of the covid19 pandemic she continued to fight to prove them wrong. I am very pleased with her and it is an honor to have had her on my side!

Wonderful group of people. Absolutely the best.
I found the law office of Lisa Douglas on line after I was turned down on my SS disability. The reviews and ratings were great and I felt that they could help. My wife and I called and gave my information, within a few minutes they returned my call and said they believe they could help. We were told from the beginning that this could take time. Thanks to them getting all information from my doctors (with which I was having trouble getting) I was approved. We are so relieved. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs help getting SS or any other services they offer.
