Located on the beautiful Tallapoosa River, Tallassee is actually situated in both Elmore and Tallapoosa counties, and part of the Montgomery Metropolitan Area. The area is rich in Native American history. It is believed that the area was inhabited from 1000-1540 AD by the Mississippian culture of which the Creek People are descendants, and De Soto visited the Creek town of Talisi in the Coosa province in 1540. The great Seminole leader, Osceola, is believed to have been born in Talisi. Tallapoosa River provides not only great recreational opportunities, but many jobs due to the hydroelectric power plant at Thurlow Dam.
Unlike many small towns in Alabama, Tallassee has a lower poverty rate as compared to towns of similar size that are south of Birmingham. With almost 5,000 residents, approximately 28% of the population lives in poverty which consists of about 32% of children. However, even though it is low compared to other small towns in Alabama, it is still above the national average. What we have discovered at The Sellers Law Firm is that many people in Tallassee work either in Tallassee, or they leave and work in Montgomery or Auburn area. We know regardless of where you work that unfortunate financial crises can befall upon you. Our Tallassee bankruptcy attorneys have seen various unforeseen circumstances strike our clients.

In our 24 years of experience in representing people in Tallassee and the surrounding area, we have discovered that many people who apply for Social Security/SSI benefits will give up when denied at the initial level. We consider this to be a tragedy. Many people give up on good cases simply because they don't understand the complicated and extremely confusing Social Security regulations. Our Tallassee Social Security lawyers know how difficult the process can seem to our clients before they see us. We take the time to understand how they feel and what they have experienced. We explain that the first thing we must do to win a Social Security case is prove that they have physical or mental impairment(s) that will exists for more than 12 months and that the impairment(s) prevents them from being able to do any gainful employment. It isn't enough that they can't do their old job; we must prove that they can't do any other jobs also. This is the part that gets tricky because most people don't know how to prove that you can't do any full time job. Our Tallassee Social Security lawyers have represented thousands of people and collected millions of dollars in back benefits by simply proving that are clients are disabled and can't do any job. We can even file your initial application for Social Security disability in one of our offices, which save our clients a trip to the Social Security office. Remember, we don't get paid unless you do, and all consultations are always free.
