Acadia Law Group

We’ll help you take back your life

Acadia Law Group is a full-service consumer advocate law firm that helps you secure and preserve your rights.  In business since 1999 with thousands of clients across the United States, Acadia takes on insurance companies to represent you if you have been injured, assists you if you are applying for disability benefits under the Social Security Act, and helps you settle obligations if you owe money to the Internal Revenue Service.  We understand that these issues can affect your health, career, family, and quality of life, and we are here to help you recover and get back to living your life on your terms.

Our mission is to provide you the highest quality representation regarding your insurance, disability, or tax settlement claim and ensure that you receive the maximum benefit under the law.  Regardless of your state of residence, in cases where we represent you to receive disability benefits or in a personal injury claim we will administer your claim and provide local attorney representation before a judge if a hearing is required to advocate your case.  In cases where we represent you to receive disability benefits or in a personal injury claim, we will cover all costs of your case, at no charge to you, unless we win your case.

We believe in treating you with the respect and dignity you deserve.  Every person’s circumstances are unique and we want to understand your situation so that we can represent you in the most effective manner possible.  We will take the time to listen to you and help you through what can be a very difficult and challenging process.

We are committed to your success.  Our reputation is only as good as the quality of the service we provide.  Although we cannot guarantee the outcome of your case, we promise that we will do everything we can to vigorously advocate your position to give you the greatest chance of a favorable outcome for you and your family.

Personal Injury

When you have been injured due to the negligence of another, in addition to the time and resources required for your medical treatment, you also have to deal with the physical pain during the healing process and the loss of enjoyment from doing the things you love with your friends and family.  On top of all of this, you also have to pay medical bills and other costs of living while you recover and try and put your life back together.  The process of obtaining reimbursement and compensation can be overwhelming, especially when attempting to navigate your claim with an insurance company whose goal is to protect the at-fault person or entity.

Insurance companies have generated profits in the billions of dollars capitalizing on the understanding that you, the victim, do not know the complexities of insurance policies, codes and laws.  Indeed, the validity of this is shown by merely looking at payments made by insurance companies for injury claims over the last 20 years, which have been steadily decreasing, despite an increase in premiums to their policy holders.  Insurance companies have invested tens of millions of dollars to build complex software algorithms to assist adjusters in minimizing claim payments – to your detriment.  At Acadia, we also utilize proprietary software and systems to counter the insurance companies and enhance our ability to secure larger settlements and verdicts for our clients.

Some large personal injury firms are founded upon the principle of mass claims processing with minimal effort – a volume-based approach that only superficially addresses the particulars of a client’s case and focuses on quick settlements.  Because these settlements are little contested and are lower than what should reasonably be paid to injured victims, these firms become the unwitting accomplices of the insurance industry.  If you’ve been injured, you do not deserve this impersonal and lukewarm approach to securing benefits to which you are rightfully entitled. At Acadia, your needs are our principal concern. We will come to you – at your home or place of work – to meet with and listen to you.  We want to understand the causes of your injury and how it has affected your life and relationships.  We will take the time to document your case and will help you get the treatment you need.  Whether you are a father who can no longer give your child piggyback rides or you are a high school athlete who has to give up a sports scholarship because of a hurt knee, these injuries take away moments now and moments in the future that cannot be replaced.  Although insurance companies like to refer to these incidents at “accidents,” we know that many of them could have been prevented.  Acadia Law Group prides itself on not just getting your medical bills paid, but making sure you are compensated for the hardship caused by the negligence.

We understand how insurance companies operate and we work diligently to thoroughly prepare your claim and ensure your injuries have been properly documented, diagnosed, and treated.   Our job is simply to see that insurance companies live up to the promises they have made when they issued the policy in the first place.  You should not feel any obligation to minimize your claim just because the insurance adjuster tries to convince you that your injuries are minor.  We know how to negotiate a more favorable outcome for you so you can get back on your feet and back to your life.  If you have been injured, please give us a call, at no cost or obligation, and we can discuss your claim.

Disability Advocacy

Acadia Disability is your advocate for claiming disability benefits under the Social Security Act.  We can assist you in compiling employment, health, and other relevant information in processing your disability benefit application and, when necessary, personally represent you before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) anywhere in the United States.  Depending on your age, employment history, disability onset date, and other factors, disability benefits can range from a few hundred to tens of thousands of dollars in retroactive pay if your application is approved.

A Social Security Disability claimant generally has three opportunities to gain approval of their application.  Acadia Disability works with you through the entire application process, including the initial application submission, petitions for reconsideration of denied applications, and hearings before an ALJ to appeal denied reconsideration petitions.  Occasionally, we will also facilitate an appeal of an ALJ denial to the National Appeals Council.

We have assisted thousands of clients across the country to apply for Social Security disability benefits.  Importantly, we cover all costs of your case, at no charge to you, unless we win your case.  Please contact our helpful staff who can walk you through the process and see if you can qualify.  You have worked hard to earn your social security benefits and, if you become disabled, we want to help you access these benefits for you and your family.  We take pride in the level of personal service we provide and look forward to taking on your case.

Tax Settlement Relief

Unresolved tax issues can be a source of tremendous stress and anxiety that never seems to go away.  And the longer these tax obligations are left unsettled, the greater the sense of pressure until one feels overwhelmed to the point of not doing anything at all.  We understand this and we can help.  We can remove this burden from your life by helping you to qualify for one of several programs offered by the IRS to get you back in compliance and breathing easier.  We offer more than just the best client service and technical expertise – we offer peace of mind.

The IRS is the largest collection agency in the world.  It has virtually unlimited resources to garnish your wages and your bank account, as well as seize your property.  In extreme cases, the IRS can even initiate criminal prosecution that can result in huge fines and imprisonment.

Our team of tax professionals has decades of experience in dealing with the IRS and state tax agencies.  We know how to deal with complex and longstanding tax issues.  In most cases, we can reduce tax debt, eliminate tax disputes, negotiate payment plans, and reduce penalties, interest, and late fees.

You don’t have to face the monolithic IRS on your own.  We can interface with the IRS on your behalf so you don’t have to.  And if you qualify for one of the settlement programs offered by the IRS, we will work with you to get all of the information required and submitted and help you set up a payment arrangement that will work for you.

Please call our helpful staff to see if you can qualify for one of the settlement programs offered by the IRS.  There’s no obligation to you unless we take on your case.
