Did your disability claim get denied? Do you need to appeal, but not sure where to start? Are you looking for a firm that only gets paid if they win? If you answered YES, then call us at 902-800-8336 for a free phone consultation and case evaluation.
Did you know you can lose a winnable case? We believe no Canadian should be denied disability benefits because of legal technicalities. We have made it our mission to empower you through education, advocacy, and legal services.
It’s hard to come to terms with being unable to work. But it’s even worse when others question your work ethic and motives. We help vindicate you using our signature process: The Story Alignment Method™. This process focuses on winning your claim by aligning your story with the expectations and beliefs of the decision-makers. Others will come to understand that stopping work and going on sick leave was the last thing you wanted.
We know it’s stressful to contact a law firm. Don’t worry — we’re expecting you. When you call us, you will meet members of our team who speak with people just like you every day! So, they’re hoping you will call and they want to hear your story.

Answers to FAQs
A disability lawyer focuses their legal work on disability-related claims and issues. There is no official certification to be a disability lawyer. So, any lawyer can say they are a disability lawyer. You have to do your own due diligence to determine the extent of a lawyer’s experience with disability claims.
If you’re off work for disability, we expect your number one priority is financial security. The right disability lawyer can help you get payments approved faster than you could on your own. This is why we are big advocates of early help from a lawyer.
Disability lawyers help by identifying the best strategy, and then executing it. They will do things like take over communications with the insurance company; get a copy of your claim file; identify red flags that are causing your claim to be denied; prepare forms or other documents needed for appeals; file lawsuits; and negotiate approval of your claim or one-time settlement.
At Resolute Legal, we believe everyone should have access to quality legal representation, no matter their financial circumstances. We work on a contingency fee basis. So, you don’t owe us anything upfront. Our legal fee is a percentage of the funds we win for you. See our pricing for more.
This depends on your situation. We have won cases in a few weeks. Sometimes it can take several months. In rare cases, it can take years. The more we learn about your situation, the better estimate we can give. Request a free case evaluation to get our opinion on timeframes for your case.
In our experience, there are 3 big problems with hiring a disability lawyer. They are 1) Hiring a lawyer when it isn’t necessary, 2) Realizing the lawyer is a bad fit after you hire them, or 3) Getting overcharged. We help you avoid these problems by educating you about the disability claim process. During your free case evaluation, we give you our honest opinion on whether it makes sense for you to get a lawyer. We help you avoid buyer’s remorse with our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Finally, we take away your fears of being overcharged with our Fair Fee Guarantee.
There is no consensus on the “best disability lawyer.” In fact, the rules of professional conduct stop lawyers from claiming they’re the best. Some lawyers have tried to get around this with “lawyer awards.” These awards are a roundabout way to imply someone is better. Some lawyer awards are real, but many are dubious at best. In some cases, they are no more than a paid endorsement. The organizations that regulate lawyers have cracked down on lawyer awards because they mislead the public. Take any so-called “lawyer award” with a grain of salt.
