Social Security Disability

Oakland Social Security Lawyers

Boxer & Gerson, LLP believes strongly that people who are unable to work because of disability deserve to obtain monthly benefits and Medicare health coverage. However, the Social Security Administration typically rejects a large percentage of initial claims. If you are among those whose claim or Request for Reconsideration has been denied, do not give up hope.

Boxer & Gerson, LLP is dedicated to helping disabled people obtain the Social Security Disability benefits that can enable them to live in dignity. We have helped thousands of people throughout Northern California—and we can help you, too.

The Boxer & Gerson Difference

There are many advantages to working with Boxer & Gerson, LLP.

We are local—Our attorneys are familiar with local medical providers, the Social Security offices in Oakland, San Francisco, San Rafael, and Stockton, and even the particular concerns and tendencies of individual administrative law judges in our area.

You will work directly with an experienced attorney—Your case will not be handed off to a paralegal.

We understand disabling medical conditions—Our years of experience in accident and injury cases gives us the medical knowledge needed to work with doctors to properly evaluate complex, disabling conditions.

Our attorneys know the Social Security process—We handle Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) cases every day. Our attorneys are thoroughly familiar with the rules and procedures of the Social Security Administration’s Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR)—and how to get the most beneficial results for our clients.

We will prepare you for the hearing—Your Boxer & Gerson, LLP attorney will explain the process and inform you how you can best aid your case by accurately describing your disability and its effects. We will even take you through a mock hearing so you know what you can expect when you walk into the hearing room.

Comprehensive legal services—Our attorneys are skilled at navigating the relationships between Social Security, workers’ compensation and long-term disability plans. This is critical, because if you are on workers’ compensation or are receiving some type of short-term or long-term disability benefits, you may also be able to collect Social Security Disability benefits. It is important to coordinate benefits between systems—such as SSD, WC, and LTD policies—in order to avoid possible offsets or credits.

Boxer & Gerson, LLP does not give up—We provide aggressive representation at all stages of the legal process. Upon mutual agreement, we can appeal your case to the Appeals Council and, if appropriate, to Federal Court.

No Benefits, No Fee — Our representation is on a contingency basis, which means that if you do not win your case, you will pay no fee. The risk is ours, and our intention is to make certain that the benefits you deserve flow to you.
