Serving You on a Contingency Basis
You do not have to be concerned with how you are going to pay for your disability legal services.

Some of the services I offer include:
- Denied Claims & Appeals
- Social Security Disability (SSD)
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Disabling Conditions
- Dependents & Children Disability
- Age 50+ Claims

From our Clients
I went to Evan’s and Evan’s when a friend had told me that they had won her disability case for her. I had already been denied disability twice and I appealed for a hearing, I had been trying for about a year and a half at this point. I was extremely sick and unable to work any longer, I was losing my apartment and on the verge of being homeless and the bills just kept coming in and piling up I had no more money and no way of getting anymore.
I was really scared and desperate and didn’t know where to turn, I called and set up a time to meet with Richard Sly, very laid back kind of guy . I explained my situation to him and he agreed to take my case, he never promised or sugar coated anything and when I left I wasn’t really sure how I felt or what the outcome would be, but I at least had someone in my corner now and all I could do was hope for the best and pray for a miracle. They did all the leg work for me and I didn’t hear much from them unless they needed something like a signature or permission to get medical records.
Fast forward to the hearing day, I was extremely nervous and scared because if I don’t win my case I don’t know where I will live or what I will do because I am still extremely sick and unable to work. I met with Richard Sly about a half hour before the hearing was set to begin we went over a few things about my case and then it was time. We were in front of the judge for maybe 15-20 minutes and then it was over. I had no idea what had just happened to be honest, I just felt like I couldn’t hear or understand anything that was being said, Richard and I walked out into the hallway, and I asked him okay what now, how long until I find out if I am approved or denied? He did a little chuckle and said you just won, the judge approved you for disability. I was in shock, I wanted to scream, hug him and cry all at the same time, the instant relief that I had felt from those words I cannot explain.
I am so very grateful and thankful for Richard Sly and Evan’s and Evan’s for taking my case and everything that they did. I’m still going to be sick, but at least now I don’t have to worry about having a place to live and how I’m going to pay my bills. I don’t think they know how much of an impact they make to someone’s life, this is something they do everyday, but for me it is life changing a miracle for me. Thank you Richard Sly and Evan’s and Evan’s, I am forever grateful, Evelyn M.
