There is no requirement that you have a lawyer when filing for disability.  Going to see a doctor regularly will improve the quality of your claim.  You can apply by phone (1-800-772-1213), in person, or online. 

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ

If you are just applying for SSD either you can do it or you can do it with an attorney, who has internet access, in his or her office.  For SSI you must go into the ocal SSA office and apply.
