Most initial Social Security Disability claims are rejected, as are a large portion of Requests for Reconsideration. But you should not be discouraged. If your initial claim or request has been denied, it is still possible to obtain Social Security benefits.
Boxer & Gerson, LLP has helped thousands of people obtain Social Security Disability benefits over the decades we have been serving clients. We enjoy a successful track record in reversing prior denials of benefits by representing our clients in hearings before Administrative Law Judges of the Social Security Administration’s Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). We also represent clients in appeals to the Social Security Appeals Council and in Federal Court when mutually agreed to.

After a Social Security Disability claim denial, you can file a Request for Reconsideration, which must be done within 60 days of the date of the denial. If that request is turned down, the next step is to request a hearing before an administrative law judge.
Some people try representing themselves at this hearing, but long experience shows there is no substitute for professional legal assistance. Those who go in alone usually wind up repeating the same errors they made in their original claims. An experienced Social Security Disability lawyer from Boxer & Gerson, LLP can make the difference between a successful appeal and repeated frustration that leaves you without compensation.
The attorneys at Boxer & Gerson, LLP have years of experience in Social Security Disability cases. We understand the Social Security Disability process, what administrative law judges look for when evaluating claims, and how to overcome objections to claim applications.
We can help gather and present new evidence that clearly demonstrates your disability. If necessary, we can also help your case at later stages, representing you in an appeal or in civil court if we mutually agree you have a good chance of success.
Remember, there are multiple levels of appeals, and each has critical deadlines. It is important that you consult an attorney immediately to preserve your rights to these important benefits.
