Social Security Disability Appeals

Southern California Social Security Appeal Lawyer

On average, 39 percent of initial applications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are denied, according to the Social Security Administration.

If your claim is rejected, it can leave you unable to work and short on money. Many people feel betrayed by the system they paid into for so many years. Others are offended that the government seems to be questioning their credibility. The stress of putting together a disability appeal while dealing with the pain of your disability can be too much for many disabled people.

Don’t give up. Contact a Social Security Appeals attorney at Caronna & Johnson, LLP today for a free initial consultation about your case. From our offices in the Palm Springs area, we represent clients nationwide in the Social Security appeals process.

People who are represented by an attorney in their Social Security appeal have a much better chance of having benefits awarded than people who do not have legal counsel. At Caronna & Johnson, LLP, our attorneys are experienced in helping clients at all levels of Social Security appeals. We’d like to help you, too.

Social Security Disability awards are decided in a seven step process, the first four decisions are made by the Social Security Administration (SSA):

  • Initial application
  • Reconsideration
  • Administrative Law Judge hearing
  • Appeals Council

The next three levels of appeal are decided in Federal Court.

  • Federal District Court
  • U.S. Court of Appeals
  • U.S. Supreme Court

We have a comprehensive knowledge of the Social Security Disability Insurance application and appeals process. We use our knowledge of the system and our substantial experience in Social Security Disability appeals to help you receive benefits as quickly as possible.

You will pay no attorneys fees unless we win benefits for you. Our fees are a portion of the back benefits owed you by the SSA, which caps the fees and must approve the fee agreement. It won’t cost you any more to retain an experienced SSDI attorney early in process. To learn more about how we can be of assistance, please contact our law firm today to arrange a free initial consultation.
