If you have had your initial claim for Social Security benefits denied, the next step of the process, after filing a request for reconsideration, is to attend a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ). This Social Security hearing will allow you to communicate in person to a judge who has direct impact over the final ruling on your case. Given the length of time that one can wait for a hearing and the stakes of the outcome, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side to assist you through the process.
At The Klein Law Group, P.C., we also understand how important these hearings are and how critical it is to present your case correctly and strongly. Our attorneys will prepare you for the kinds of questions you will likely be asked and help to reduce or eliminate the number of surprises that you will face at your hearing in New York.
