Tim Wilborn represents claimants who are applying for
Social Security Disability and SSI benefits. After establishing a
practice in and around the Portland, Oregon, area beginning in 1997, Tim
reached the point where technological advances in the way cases are
handled allowed him to choose his place of residence, while continuing
to represent existing and new Oregon clients. (All court documents are
received or filed via the Internet, using the court’s CM/ECF system.
Other communications are accomplished via phone, fax, e-mail, and postal
mail. Because Tim’s practice focuses on appeals which are done almost
entirely in writing, it rarely is necessary to appear in person either
to meet a client or to attend a court proceeding, so Tim’s choice of
where to live and work is largely a matter of personal preference. Tim
prefers to live where the weather is sunnier than it is in Portland.)
Tim currently limits his practice to Social Security and SSI Disability
appeals for claimants who live in Oregon. Tim handles appeals of
administrative law judge decisions in the United States District Court (District of Oregon) and United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He has been co-counsel on two U.S. Supreme Court cases.
2013, Tim Wilborn and co-authors Ralph Wilborn and Etta L. Wilborn
published a book of detailed instructions for applicants who are trying
to navigate the difficult process of completing Social Security's
application for disability benefits (SSD and/or SSI):
The Wilborn Method, Social Security Disability: A Step-by-Step Guide to Getting Your Benefits; Initial Application Level.

The Wilborn Method is a how-to manual for
(non-blind) disabled adult claimants who are applying for Social
Security Disability or SSI Disability benefits and whose claims are at
the initial application level. In a recent study, Social Security
revealed that about six of every ten disability applications were denied
at the initial level. Even worse, only about one in four of those
denied claims ever was won on appeal. In other words, if you
don't win at the initial level, there's only about a one in four chance
you ever will! You need to make your strongest case for disability at
the initial application level, where your chances of winning are best.
But how? This book explains that in detail.
