Hi, the best way is to have iron clad strong objective and legally acceptable proof that you have medical impairments that restrict you to such a major extent in all of the functional aspects needed for all occupations in the national or regional economy, that you can not do any job, nor your prior job. Once you have that proof, you will win expeditiously. If your treatment record is sketchy or your doctor has poor notes, that is often what one needs to overcome, be it by getting a new doctor and treating with him long enough that his opinion on capacities or functional tasks holds a lot of water with the SSA, or by getting the current doctor to record more details regarding what you can and can not do. So, for a faster positive award, you should build your evidence NOW.
If you are not studied up on the functional tasks needed for the various occupations out there that the SSA relies on, you may want to study up on that, read all of the relevant Social Security Rulings, as well as POMS, put out by the SSA, for starters.
If you don't think that is your speed, your best bet is an SSD attorney. They work on contingency, without a retainer.
And their fees are rather minimal in the end, and determined by the SSA.
