STANDING UP FOR THE LEGAL RIGHTS

Has Your SSD Claim Been Denied? We Can Help You Appeal.

If you are unable to earn a living due to a severe injury or disability, filing a strong initial application for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits with the help of an experienced SSD attorney is the surest and swiftest way to get the money you need. But even if your application was denied, you don’t need to give up. The appeals process – while typically longer and more intensive than the initial application – is an important opportunity to turn your case around.

Professional legal guidance is critical for successfully pursuing the SSD appeals process. In New York, you can turn to the Law Office of Morrin & Sands for experienced legal help. Our founding attorney has more than three decades of experience handling all aspects of the SSD process, from the initial application through administrative appeals.

Short deadlines can limit your rights to pursue an appeal, so the sooner you contact us for a free consultation, the better.

What’s Involved In An Appeal?

The appeals process before the Social Security Administration involves several levels – which means you have several opportunities to make a strong case. Our firm can represent you at any or all of these stages, including:

  • Hearing before an administrative law judge: Following another denial, you can request the opportunity to appear before a judge and present evidence on why you are entitled to benefits. This stage of the appeals process is often your best opportunity for getting a benefits award.
  • Review before the Social Security Administration’s Appeals Council: During this final step of the administrative appeals process, the council can make a decision on your case or send it back to an administrative law judge for further review.

Pursuing the last step of this process is particularly important if the administrative law judge made certain legal errors during the hearing or decision-making process. We will examine the records and transcripts closely to detect these errors — and to analyze whether there are any other grounds for appeal.

No Fee Unless You Get Results

We handle all SSD appeals cases for contingency fees only. This means you will owe us nothing unless you get a favorable outcome.
