You will receive personal one-on-one contact from attorneys Peggy L. Stevens and Stephanie A. Christel. We understand that your disability claim is the most important issue in your life at this time, and we take the time to listen and understand all of the issues in your case.
We also review the potential problems with your case and discuss with you how those problems may be addressed prior to the hearing. Usually these issues can be resolved by further documentation or gathering more evidence prior to the hearing.
Some of the disability benefits services we provide include:
- Provide you with the advantages of a local social security attorney, including face-to-face, personal contact.
- Help you complete the application process leading up to your Social Security Disability Hearing: your Request for Reconsideration, Request for Hearing, and the accompanying Disability Report Appeals.
- Compile your medical records, vocational rehabilitation records, school records (if applicable), and any other information that will support your claim. These records will be submitted electronically to the Social Security Administration through Electronic Records Express. This process makes it quicker and easier for your records to be transferred securely, and this process further improves the accuracy, consistency, and timeliness of decision-making throughout the Social Security Disability Application Process.
- Acquire information from your Social Security file.
- In the majority of cases, a Memorandum will be written for the Judge. The Memorandum sets forth my theory of disability prior to the hearing. Judges are hearing cases all day long, everyday. It is helpful to them if we can provide a Memorandum with a summary of the case before the hearing.
- Before going to court, we will prepare you for your hearing. We will go through your testimony and the format of the hearing. Also, I will prepare your witnesses. By doing this, you will have a better understanding of the process prior to, during, and after the hearing.
- Attend and represent you at your Social Security hearing.
