We represent a claimant from Copiague whose application for Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits had been denied after a hearing based on the testimony of a discredited medical expert. Last year, a federal district court judge in New York ordered a new hearing for the claimant. Today, after a six year struggle, the claimant was found entitled to receive SSD benefits back to May 2014.
While we hope for the best, we always prepare for the worst. That means preparing every case as if it will have to be appealed in court. And when we represent a claimant, we will go to court if necessary.
Our litigation experience helps us prepare the best possible factual record to present in court, which is important because it is rare when a judge will permit the introduction of new evidence. Litigation experience is also important because you need to understand what the legal theories will be in court in order to know what evidence will be required to support those theories.
It is not easy to find a SSD attorney with litigation experience. If you want to retain a SSD attorney, who specializes in disability benefits law and has a lot of litigation experience, please contact my office for a free phone consultation. We have offices conveniently located on Long Island in Nassau and Suffolk counties.Previous Next
