California Lawyer For Social Security Disability Appeals

If you have been denied Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, it is important not to give up hope — this is far from an uncommon occurrence. The majority of applications are denied. The next step is the appeals process, where you are allowed to amend and address any issues in the initial application.

With that said, you must request a reconsideration within 60 days of denial. Additionally, the Social Security office may request that you attend consultative evaluations. Although required if recommended by the court, it is important to remember that these may not be in your best interest.

Don't Wait To Contact A Lawyer

If you have been denied, please get in touch with our lawyers immediately to understand your rights and to learn about the best and most efficient way to proceed with your claim. With nearly 25 years of experience in the field and adjudication of more than 7,000 Social Security Disability cases, Melissa A. Proudian can help you work through any appeals issue.

No matter what stage of the process you are in — from initial filing to appeals — we are prepared to bring our comprehensive process analysis to help you reach the best possible outcome. All SSI/ SSDI and Veterans Administration benefits cases are contingent-based, meaning that our office will not collect any lawyers' fees unless we secure the benefits to which you are entitled.

We're Ready To Go The Distance For You

We will do everything possible to submit the most comprehensive medical evidence of your ailment. With that said, this process can take months and/or years to obtain a favorable decision, so it is important to be patient. If at all possible, we will work to prove your case at the earliest point possible. We are willing to go before an Administrative Law Judge, the Social Security Appeals Council, the United States District Court and the United States Court of Appeals.

We strongly encourage you to contact our office regardless of where you are in the process.
