Social Security Disability

All Social Security Disability matters are handled on a contingent fee basis,

Meaning you will never be charged a fee until your claim is won.


Donna Simpson has worked with disabled people in Tennessee to receive the disability law benefits they deserve since 1979. She not only knows the law, she is familiar with the different Social Security judges to whom your case may be assigned for a hearing. She is a sustaining member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimant Representatives (NOSSCR), chair of the Social Security Disability Section of the Tennessee Bar Association, and past secretary of the American Association for Justice Social Security Section. As a lawyer familiar with Social Security cases, she knows how to appeal a denied claim and is skilled in evaluating your disability and counseling you on how the law applies to your condition. She knows how to decide what medical proof is needed for your case, and she knows how to get it. She will prepare you before your hearing, so you can explain your disability to the judge in the strongest way possible. She will explain all of the government’s decisions, and help you with any problems that come up about your payments if you are approved.


The Law Office of Donna Simpson has helped hundreds of disabled claimants collectively obtain millions of dollars of benefits they deserve. Additionally, clients have had a continuing income stream and continuing medical insurance from the favorable decisions I help them obtain. A reputation for success is something our office is proud of. Yet, all of the above means little unless you can show your results. Just ask our past clients. They will tell you how we were able to help them.

Disabled Workers Are Entitled To Social Security Disability Benefits

Donna Simpson wishes to convey to all potential clients the important truth that Social Security Disability benefits are not a government handout. Rather, they are a payout for workers who have made insurance premium payments to the government throughout their careers. When disability occurs, Social Security Disability is available to act as a safety net for people who are no longer able to work as they did before. Our staff is trained and can guide applicants through the appeals process and give an individual his or her best chance at approval.


Donna Simpson has an excellent reputation. Both her legal peers and satisfied former clients frequently refer new clients to her firm. The Social Security judges and the local State Court judges and Chancellors know her and respect her ability and professionalism.
