Can I still work if I receive Social Security Disability benefits?

Social Security Disability Benefits

Yes. You can still work even if you have been found disabled by Social Security and still receive your Social Security disability benefits. However, there is a cap on how much you can earn and still be eligible to receive your disability benefits. For 2022, you can earn $1,350 per month ($2,260 if you are blind) and still be eligible to receive your disability benefits. Social Security considers this level of earning substantial gainful activity (SGA). This amount is adjusted by Social Security annually. You should keep in mind that the Social Security Administration can bring your disability case up for...

Social Security or Family Law

I have clients ask me all the time, when will my hearing be or how long will it take to get a hearing date?

Some courts have more cases than other courts have. Some judges only set hearings on certain days of the week. Some courts have more court reporters available for hearings that have to be on the record than other courts do. When there is more than one...

Once these matters are determined, you and your spouse will file a joint petition for divorce and an agreed upon property settlement agreement, sometimes also called a marital dissolution agreement, which will set out who gets what property, who is responsible for each marital debt and who...

Am I entitled to recovery of lost wages in a personal injury case?

Lost wages

Absolutely.  If you miss work due to an injury resulting from a car wreck, slip and fall or other types of personal injury, you can seek recovery for your lost wages in your personal injury case. In order to do so, you simply need to notify your lawyer of the time you missed from work and your lawyer will tell you what documents to provide.

Do I Have to Open an Estate in Mississippi?

Estate Law

I get questions frequently from friends and current clients about whether an estate needs to be open in Mississippi if a family member of theirs passes away. Sometimes an estate is required and sometimes it is not. If a person’s estate is worth less than $50,000, then you generally do not have to open one unless there is an asset, like real property, that needs to be handled through an estate in order to make sure the title to the land is clear. Some assets pass outside this completely, such as life insurance benefits and retirement plans, which go to...
