If your claim for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits was denied after the initial application, do not give up trying to obtain those benefits. The vast majority of Social Security claimants are denied benefits after the initial application. Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of the SSD appeals process and can advise you of your options.
At the Law Offices of Tony Farmer & John Dreiser, we provide effective guidance throughout the process of obtaining SSD benefits. We will meet with you personally at the onset of your claim and work with you closely throughout the duration of your case.
You Will Receive Highly Qualified Guidance in the SSD Appeals Process
Our Tennessee law firm has been representing disabled individuals since 1974. Additionally, firm attorney John Dreiser was voted one of Knoxville's top Social Security Disability lawyers in Cityview Magazine in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. When you choose us to represent you in the appeals process, you are choosing a law firm that is dedicated, knowledgeable and successful.
Act Swiftly to Appeal Denied Disability Claims
The Social Security Administration (SSA) requires that you appeal the denial within 60 days of the date on the denial letter. Our attorneys can inform the SSA in writing — called a request for reconsideration — that you wish to appeal and then set out to advocate for you in the following:
- Hearing by an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ)
- Review by the SSA Appeals Council
- Federal court
Very rarely does an SSD claim require resolution in federal court. However, if yours does, rest assured we are prepared to represent you at this level.
Why Was My Claim Denied?
More often than not, SSD benefits are initially denied because the SSA requires further medical proof of your disability. Our Social Security Disability appeals attorneys work with medical providers to ensure comprehensive documentation and evidence is acquired and provided to the SSA.
We handle SSD claims and appeals on a contingency fee basis. This means attorney's fees will not be charged unless you receive benefits.
