Francisco Courthouse for 9th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals, where
Social Security claim appeals are filed.
pride ourselves on...
YOU AT EACH STAGE IN YOUR CLAIM
We will assist you with all stages of your claim, including representing
you at administrative hearings and on appeal in Federal Court. In preparation
for your administrative hearing, we will explain what issues are most
important and will prepare you for the questions that the judge is likely
to ask. On appeal in Federal Court we will submit written legal arguments
and will attend oral arguments if necessary. Non-attorney representatives
cannot do this for you, and it is very difficult for a non-represented
claimant to understand what issues are most important in these proceedings.
DOING THE "LEG WORK" FOR YOU
We will assist you with the routine matters on your claim, such as filing
your appeals on time and assisting you in completing standard Social Security
questionnaires. We will obtain your doctors' records, as well as reports
and interrogatories. These things can be very burdensome to you, but are
routine for us. Additionally, we have a highly skilled staff that is dedicated
to keeping your claim running smoothly. They are able to quickly and knowledgeably
answer your questions. We regularly follow the status of your claim to
be sure it is being processed properly.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR IMPAIRMENTS
Claims can be won on the basis of one impairment, either physical or psychological,
or can be won on the basis of a combination of impairments. There are
times when vocational factors such as age, education, and work history
are important. We are experienced in reading medical records and understanding
the nature of complex diseases and injuries. We know what information
is important to obtain from your doctors. We can help the Administrative
Law Judge assigned to your claim understand these issues and help you
tell "your story".
UNDERSTANDING HOW YOUR BENEFITS ARE CALCULATED.
understand how the Social Security Administration calculates benefits.
If your claim is approved, we monitor your claim to be sure that you are
paid correctly. We understand that there are problems which can arise
when a person collects Social Security and Workers' Compensation. We can
guide you through these matters.
