If the Social Security Administration has denied your claim for benefits, you have the opportunity to apply for reconsideration of your application. Your attorney can request a hearing that will allow you to present further medical evidence. If that resubmitted application is also denied, you may appeal your case and have the opportunity to present your case before an administrative law judge (ALJ).
Lawyers at The Klein Law Group, P.C., in New York City handle SSDI appeals. Attorney involvement from the beginning of your case is preferable, but if you have already applied and had your application denied, we are available to take your appeal to the next level.
An attorney on your side as soon as possible can maximize your chances of success on appeal. Your lawyer should provide attentive, thorough and dedicated counsel throughout each phase of your case, including:
- Developing further medical evidence: Your doctor’s testimony can be very valuable.
- Development of compelling arguments that you are disabled
From the time of your reconsideration hearing until the appeal before an ALJ, a number of months may go by. At The Klein Law Group, P.C., there is no downtime in our clients’ cases. As we wait for the opportunity to argue your appeal before an ALJ, we will continue investigating and documenting your case. We pay attention to deadlines, coordinate the gathering of evidence and help ensure that all relevant supporting details are ready to strengthen your case before an ALJ.
