    An SSDI Benefits Lawyer Who Really Cares

    Abbey Clarkson is an Alabama Social Security Disability lawyer who has helped thousands of people win disability benefits and get more stability in their lives.

    She has more than 13 years of experience as an Alabama benefits attorney and more than 16 years practicing law overall.

    Abbey went into legal practice on her own and created The Clarkson Firm so she could do things her way—helping hardworking people find financial relief when they’re up against bad health and hard times. 

    She’ll be straight and real with you. Talking to her is like talking to a neighbor, not a hard-to-follow, stiff-necked lawyer.

    Abbey grew up in a household that wasn’t wealthy. She understands how close you are to financial ruin when health problems force you to stop working.

    She doesn’t judge you for it. In fact, she wants everyone to know that Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is not a handout. It’s not welfare. It’s an insurance program you paid for with payroll taxes when you worked. 

    Going for your disability benefits is nothing to be ashamed of. This is economic protection you worked to earn. 

    But winning approval is difficult, so getting an experienced SSDI attorney like Abbey may be your best move.

    At a time in your life when it can seem like people don’t care, Abbey will truly listen and take time to understand your needs. 

    The Clarkson Firm is a family firm. Abbey works with her sister, Allison Humphrey, who’s a paralegal.

    In addition to helping with disability benefits, Abbey helps families hurting after disturbing episodes of funeral home negligence. And she can help you get support for a personal injury or other civil litigation.

    If she gets any spare time, Abbey loves travel, good food, hanging out by a pool or other body of water, and going to concerts. She and her husband Matt live in Birmingham with their adorable Australian shepherds, Wilson and Gizmo.

    Contact Abbey and her law firm if you’re in Birmingham, Gadsden, North Alabama, Montgomery, the Black Belt, Mobile, the Gulf Coast, Chattanooga, and across Tennessee and the entire Southeast United States.

    We’re not here to get you a handout. We’re here to give you a hand up.
