- DISABILITY CLAIM FAQ
We represent a claimant from Uniondale with Protein S Deficiency that causes clotting problems, and requires her to elevate her legs most of the day to prevent additional deep vein thromboses from developing.
We filed the claimant’s Social Security Disability (“SSD”) application in 2013, which administrative law judge (“ALJ”) Alan Berkowitz denied. After the Appeals Council denied review, we appealed to federal court, where we got the ALJ’s decision reversed for a second hearing. However, the ALJ denied the SSD application at the new hearing by repeating the same mistakes that he made at the first hearing. This time though, the Appeals Council reversed the ALJ, and ordered yet another hearing.
Fortunately, the Appeals Council determined that it would be unfair to subject the claimant to a third hearing with the same ALJ, and ordered that the case be reassigned to another ALJ.
We are a full service SSD office, and represent claimants at all levels of the application and appeal process. If you find yourself unable Please call us for a free phone consultation. We have offices conveniently located on Long Island in both Nassau and Suffolk counties.Previous Next
