What we do

Brian Dowd Provides Assistance in SSDI and SSI

His mission is to help you receive Social Security Disability Benefits and Supplemental Security Income Benefits.

The government created Social Security and disability benefits programs to provide assistance for people who are unable to work because of a disability. However, the individuals who depend on these programs are often initially denied benefits they desperately need.

If your claims have been denied, and you have filed a request for a hearing, the Dowd Law Firm, located in Des Moines, Iowa, can help you. Attorney Brian Dowd will skillfully represent you in your administrative hearings. He spent ten years working for the West Des Moines hearing office of the Social Security Administration and has significant insight into how these claims are best handled.

"Brian Dowd helped me get social security disability benefits after an accident left me unable to work. I was overwhelmed with the process necessary to fill out the paperwork and deal with the government. He took care of all of it for me. It has made a huge difference in my life. I like that he was down to earth and I felt like he understood my situation. I will be forever grateful."   K.S."
