Requesting a Hearing With the Social Security Administration

If your initial Social Security disability claim is denied, and statistics show that well over two thirds of all applications will be denied initially, the next step is to request a hearing before an administrative law judge. Statistically, this hearing is your best chance to obtain the benefits you’ve previously been denied, so it’s very important to be prepared.

Shannon and her Team at Stanley Law leave no stone unturned working on your case in preparation for your hearing. Some representatives do not meet with their clients until the day of the hearing. Not at Stanley Law Offices. You’ll be totally prepared when the time comes. You’re ready to testify, and we’re ready to argue for the benefits you deserve.
