Appealing A Denied Claim

A Trial Lawyer With Experience Appealing Denied Disability Claims

Countless applicants for Social Security Disability benefits are denied the first time they apply. Often, the Social Security Administration denies claims because the applicant failed to complete the paperwork correctly or did not provide the necessary medical evidence to support his or her claim. If you are one of many whose claim was rejected, do not give up.


At Florida Disability Advocates, we have represented numerous individuals with denied claims for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Our attorney, Chad Lawrence, has 25 years of legal experience. He is a member of the Florida Academy of Trial Lawyers and truly knows what it means to fight for his clients’ rights and interests.

If your initial SSDI or SSI claim was denied, you only have 60 days to file an appeal, so call our law firm today. If you miss the 60-day deadline, you must begin the application process all over again, costing you unnecessary time and trouble.

Representing Clients At All Four Levels Of Appeal

From the very first denial all the way to federal court, Florida Disability Advocates is ready and willing to pursue the Social Security benefits that our clients need. There are four different levels of appeal:

  1. A disability reconsideration
  2. A disability hearing
  3. An appeals council review
  4. A U.S. District Court judicial review

The disability hearing is one of the most common levels of appeal, especially for those under age 50. It is a chance for you to present your case before an appointed administrative law judge.

Our attorney can assist you in gathering all necessary medical evidence, help you prepare for any challenging questions the judge may ask and present a knowledgeable argument on your behalf. Our goal is to take the burden off of you and make the process of obtaining benefits as easy and stress free as possible.
