Sanford, Maine and Springvale, Maine Social Security Disability Lawyer

Goodall Worsted Co The hardworking residents of Sanford and Springvale have been trusting the Law Offices of Russell J. Goldsmith for their legal needs when it comes to their long term disability needs (whether it be a long term Social Security disability claim or Personal Injury claim) for more than 34 years. Unfortunately, dealing with the Federal Government or an insurance company can be quite stressful, but becomes even more stressful when you have your hands full simply attempting to get your family and you back on your feet following long term illness or injury. We understand that you have enough to worry about with your medical treatment and financial concerns, and with that in mind, we work with you each step of the way to ensure that everything which can be done, is being done, to obtain for you the best possible result. Likewise, we advise you of the medical resources and forms of state and local assistance available that can help you move forward in the right direction. Having the personal care and attention of a local Maine disability lawyer, such as Russell J. Goldsmith, who continues to manage all of his cases personally, will provide you the assurance that you will not be treated like a number. Assuming your case needs to go to hearing, Attorney Goldsmith will be the one preparing you for hearing and holding your hand each step of the way during the hearing process.

From the moment you contact our office, you’ll see that we do our homework. We will spend a good amount of time getting to know who you are and what you’ve been going through: we will explain as well what needs to happen next for your claim so your expectations can be properly set and me. Should it be that we are moving forward with an initial application for Social Security disability benefits we will work with you to ensure that your application is complete and appropriately addresses all issues that will be important to your case.

We will ensure that you are receiving the appropriate treatment for the severe medical conditions that are impacting your ability to function. There are a number of resources available in the community for free medical assistance, including through Southern Maine Healthcare so as to ensure you’re receiving the medical treatment you require both for you personally, as well as for your claim. Options do remain available for interim forms of assistance through the City of Sanford Transitional Assistance Office. As reflected on their website, the assistance is available to both Sanford and Springvale residents to assist them with basic necessities such as food, rent, utilities, fuel oil etc., as defined by local ordinance and state statute, 22 M.R.S.A., part 5, Chapter 1161.

Likewise, additional assistance in the form of food stamps and Medicaid assistance is available through the Maine Department of Health & Human Services. A DHS office is conveniently located at 890 Main Street in Sanford and can be reached at 490-5400.

Energy assistance is likewise available through the Citizens Energy Corporation at 1-877-563-4645. Another valuable organization to the York County Community is York County Community Action which has programs available to assist those in need with energy assistance, children’s services, housing assistance, transportation to those who otherwise have no manner of getting to their doctors or other appointments and medical assistance through the Nasson Health Care program (among other forms of assistance). One of their offices is conveniently located nearby at 15 Oak Street in Springvale and can be reached at 490-6900.
