Attorney Profile

When an accident or injury has left you unable to work, where can you turn to for assistance? For the top disability legal services in Portland, OR, I invite you to visit me, Richard A. Sly, Attorney at Law. As of counsel with Evans and Evans disability advocates, my goal is to treat every client with the compassion and respect needed for every situation.

Evans and Evans Disability Advocates

Since 1974, I have litigated more than 7,000 claims. Located in Portland, my firm proudly represents Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability clients throughout Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington before the Social Security Administration, their Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR), their Appeals Council, and in the United States District and Circuit Courts.

The cornerstone of any success I may enjoy is hard work, diligence, and the quality relationship which I maintain with clients. Clients are treated with respect concerning their needs, goals, and objectives. The Social Security filing/approval process can be overwhelming to the disabled and medically impaired person. Throughout the decades, my clients have trusted me with their disability legal services, and have said that having an experienced advocate fighting for their rights was crucial to the success of their claim.

Serving You on a Contingency Basis

You do not have to be concerned with how you are going to pay for your disability legal services. My work as an advocate is done on a contingency basis, meaning you do not pay for service unless your case is won; then, the Social Security Administration calculates the benefits owed and pays my attorney’s fees. Some of the services I offer include:

  • Denied Claims & Appeals
  • Social Security Disability (SSD)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Disabling Conditions
  • Dependents & Children Disability
  • Age 50+ Claims
