Oakland Social Security Disability Benefits Lawyers
Most initial Social Security Disability claims are rejected, as well as a large portion of Request for Reconsideration. But you should not give up hope. If your initial Social Security Disability claim or Request for Reconsideration has been denied, it may still be possible to obtain Social Security benefits.
Boxer & Gerson, LLP is a law firm that has helped thousands of people obtain Social Security Disability. We have often been successful in reversing prior denials of benefits by representing our clients in hearings before Administrative Law Judges of the Social Security Administration's Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). We also represent clients in appeals to the Social Security Appeals Council and in Federal Court when mutually agreed to.

After a Social Security Disability claim denial, you can file a Request for Reconsideration, which must be done within 60 days of the date of the denial. If that request is turned down, the next step is to request a Social Security hearing before an administrative law judge.
Some people try going in alone, without legal representation. This is generally a bad idea, because they usually end up just repeating the mistakes they made on their original claims. An experienced Social Security Disability lawyer can make a difference in many disability cases.
