About Douglas Hutson

Doug has been helping east Tennessee residents receive Social Security disability and SSI benefits since 1983. Born and raised in Athens, Doug received his undergraduate degree in Accounting from Tennessee Wesleyan College in 1980 and graduated at the top of his class, with a law degree from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville in 1983. He is committed to providing this area's need for continued expert attorney representation.

Doug has an outstanding record of winning disability claims. In 31 years of practice, a very high percentage of the people who complete the disability process with Mr. Hutson are awarded benefits. Doug knows disability law and how to use it to win your case.

When Doug is your representative, rest assured he is the ONLY attorney working on your case. This is not the case with lawyers or “representatives” who you may see on television commercials. (See FAQ).

Doug and his staff work closely with you and your doctors during the disability process through phone calls, visits, letters and a detailed pre-hearing meeting with Mr. Hutson a few days before your hearing. Mr. Hutson's meticulous attention to detail and the specifics of your case ensure a confident experience on the day of your hearing. There will be no inexperienced attorneys whom you have not met, no non-attorney advocates, no unqualified representatives, and no paralegal associates representing you at your hearing. You will have an attorney, THE attorney at your disability hearing: Doug Hutson.

If you have been denied benefits or just have questions about the disability process, call today for a free consultation. We will be happy to assist you in any way we can.

And, as always, there is no fee until your case is won!
