Suwanee Social Security Disability Appeals Handled with Care
Disability attorney communicating clearly with clients for more than 30 years
You’ve worked all of your life, paying into Social Security. Now when you need the benefits yourself you find that your claim has been denied. It’s more common than you think. And we know from personal experience how frustrated you must be when your claim doesn’t go through the first time.
Atlanta disability lawyer John V. Hogan knows what it takes to draft a successful appeal. He’s been serving the disabled since 1984.
How does the appeals process work?
If your Social Security claims are denied, you have the right to an appeal. The Social Security Administration (SSA) conducts the appeals process. There are, generally speaking, four different levels of appeals:
Appealing the SSA’s decision to deny you benefits requires additional information. At the Law Offices of John V. Hogan, our attorneys have more than 30 years of combined experience assisting clients during the appeals process.
What makes us different
Handling an appeal is not the same as handling the initial claim. Disability lawyer John V. Hogan can guide you through the appeals process by:
- Spotting holes. Even if all of your medical records are up to date, there may be crucial information missing. We review your files to see what additional information you need from your doctors.
- Requesting an on-the-record hearing. You shouldn’t have to wait a year for your relief. We create briefs for the Office of Adjudication and Review (the appeals office) that may eliminate the need for a hearing.
- Going to court. We call experts, cross-examine witnesses and present evidence in support of your claim.
Our personal approach to the law means that you’re treated with dignity and respect at all times. If your appeal has been accepted, we work with you to explain next steps, and keep you informed throughout the entire process.
