Children’s Disability Benefits

If a child is under 18 years of age and has impairments that limit his or her ability to function physically, mentally, or psychologically at an age appropriate level, the child may qualify for disability benefits. Contact our office to determine whether your child may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.image-filler_thin_long


Our office represents families who are seeking guardianships for a loved one who is age 18 or older and who are unable to make decisions for their own safety, health, or well-being. This can be particularly important for children who are turning 18, but are unable to make decisions for themselves due to a disabling impairment. It is important to speak with someone who can advise you of your legal rights as a parent and whether a guardianship may be appropriate for your child.

Child Welfare

Our office also represents children in child welfare cases through our Juvenile Court system. We ensure that children taken into DFCS custody due to abuse and neglect are given representation in Court. We represent the child in all aspects of the Juvenile Court case, including making sure the child receives all services needed for his or her health, safety, and well-being. We strive to achieve the best possible outcome for each child individually given their circumstances.

Clients Success Stories and Case Results

  • Ms. Carroll, than you for all you have done for my daughter and for helping us weave the way through Social Security. We are grateful for everything you have done.

  • I want to thank Ms. Carroll for her hard work on my case and a special thank you for her patience and kindness toward me. I was very scared to go through this process, but she made me feel at ease and guided me through the process.

  • The resources Ms. Carroll provides are an integral part of the success of young adults as they transition to the next step in their lives. Her in-depth knowledge and insight are incredible assets in assisting families who are investigating the best options for their young person.

  • I highly recommend Ms. Dana Carroll, an Atlanta area attorney specializing in serving adults and children with cognitive disabilities.  She recently helped my adult son with autism work through the SSI appeals process, receiving a favorable decision on his behalf. She has been responsive, knowledgeable, compassionate and thorough in guiding my son and I through this process. Ms. Carroll maintains the highest level of honesty and integrity in her dealings with others.

  • A credit to her profession. I found Ms Carroll to be above and beyond my previous experiences with this profession She has the human touch to go along with her razor insight of law and procedures. She balances professionalism and humanism expertly. I was very impressed each time I conferred with her both over the phone and in person. We have hired her for additional projects and will continue to go to her should we need legal assistance. I highly recommend her to anyone needing or considering legal representation. My husband is a CEO with a fleet of lawyers at his disposal. He too was impressed with her skill and manner.

  • Impressive Experience. Ms. Carroll is highly personable and compassionately professional. I felt confident she would do a thorough job and that she had thought of every possible contingency. She was detailed without being redundant as she “road mapped” each step of the process and possible “side roads” . I felt I really could call her at any time with any question, and I did! We were dealing with an emotional situation and there were circumstances that were constantly changing. Ms. Carroll handled them all with aplomb.
    I highly recommend her and plan to utilize her skills should I require an attorney with her specific expertise in the future.
