Don’t give up! It is absolutely heartbreaking when you know you cannot work but the government still denies your case. The process to appeal can be long and tedious, but success is possible.
Most people who apply are initially denied. At Burch & Rodgers, we can help turn your denial into an approval. If you don’t win benefits, there are no legal fees.
Important! Once you’re denied benefits, the clock starts ticking. Don’t wait too long. You can miss the deadline to appeal!
Your hearing is the most critical stage in your case. Your appeals hearing before the Administrative Law Judge is your best chance to present evidence in person. It’s crucial you and the evidence be well prepared. If you have received a denial at the initial step, we strongly recommend you get legal help as soon as possible.
At Burch & Rodgers, you can meet with an attorney who can provide valuable information and advice to improve your chances of winning your appeal. Our attorneys will also meet with you again shortly before your hearing so you are prepared for your hearing.
Social Security sometimes brings in expert medical witnesses to provide testimony. They can hurt your chances of winning benefits. We know how to counter these experts.
According to Social Security’s own statistics, people win benefits more often when they have representation than when they don’t. Since there are no legal fees if you don’t win benefits, the decision to get legal representation is an easy one.
The attorneys at Burch & Rodgers can help you at all levels of Social Security’s appeals. If you were denied, it’s not the end. Contact us to talk about your case.
