Disability Hearing Attorney in Oklahoma City
Oklahoma City Social Security Disability Lawyer
The process of seeking Social Security Disability benefits can be discouraging, to say the least. Approximately 70% of initial claims are denied, and initial appeals for reconsideration are commonly denied as well.
The next step will be a disability hearing, the next step in the appeals process that involves a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge at the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. This hearing may be the first and only time that you will get to go face-to-face with the decision maker in your Social Security Disability claim.
A disability hearing will be one of your last opportunities to seek approval for your benefits. For this reason, do not hesitate to involve an Oklahoma City Social Security Disability Lawyer at our law offices to help with your case. We can assist you in filing the appeal to request a hearing, can fully prepare your case and medical records for the hearing and can then represent you in front of the Administrative Law Judge to ensure your case is properly presented and your interests protected.
Preparing for Your Disability Hearing
It is important to know what to expect with a disability hearing in the Oklahoma City area. With nearly 50 years of legal experience, we have a thorough knowledge of this process and can prepare you for your hearing.
Although the Judge will have already seen medical records, he or she may ask you direct questions about your disability and the daily limitations and obstacles you face. The Judge may also bring in doctors and vocational experts to provide information about your medical condition and how it impacts your ability to work.
We can help prepare you for the types of questions the Judge may ask and how to respond. Your attorney can also cross-examine any doctor or vocational expert brought in by the government if their evaluation of your medical condition or abilities is improper.
