What We Do

I’m so grateful. This calls for a happy dance! Thanks!

When you hire us to represent you in your Social Security disability or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim, you will not be hiring a law firm in Indiana or New York with an attorney you meet for the first time at your hearing. You'll deal directly with a board-certified specialist and a friendly, dedicated staff who are committed to winning your case.

We’ll let Social Security know we’re handling your case and get started on preparing your case for review. We do not charge any attorney’s fees unless you win. We’ll take responsibility for all the details of your claim, and we'll keep you informed of your claim's progress every step of the way.

We've helped people with all kinds of mental and physical impairments over the years, including: 

 

osteoarthritis
rheumatoid arthritis
chronic pain
amputations
heart disease
congestive heart failure
blindness/loss of vision
deafness/loss of hearing
sjogren's syndrome
scleroderma
psoriasis
psoriatic arthritis

multiple sclerosis
muscular dystrophy

We ask your doctor for his or her medical opinion about your medical problems and how they limit or restrict your ability to do things.

We meet with you well before your hearing to prepare your for the hearing.

07 | Prepare hearing briefs

We prepare a written statement (also known as a brief) for the the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) assigned to your case to show the ALJ why your claim should be approved.

08 | Represent you at your hearing

We represent you at your hearing with the ALJ.

09 | Review award letters

If we win, we review the award letters Social Security sends to be sure you are getting the correct amount of benefits.

If an ALJ denies your claim, we can file an appeal with the Appeals Council if warranted. If the Appeals Council denies your claim, we can file an appeal in federal court in appropriate cases.

Every case is different. But every case deserves our full attention. We will always work to get Social Security to make a favorable decision in your claim as quickly as possible.
