Applying for disability benefits can be a complicated process, and often includes a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) to determine whether your application is approved or denied. Here are three reasons why it is important to have an attorney represent you at a hearing.
Lawyers know the ins and outs of the legal system and how to best represent their client to get optimal results—they are your advocate and have your best interests at heart.
Lawyers are trained professionals who understand the intricate rules of the court system, including the procedures to properly handle all aspects of your Social Security Disability case. They’ve overseen hundreds of such cases and can help advise you on the directives that you should take.
At Regas & Haag Ltd., we handle all aspects of your Social Security Disability case—including contacting your doctors to obtain medical records and reports, filing all appeals on your behalf, preparing you for an eventual hearing in front of an ALJ, and appealing through the federal courts.
The vast majority of applications for disability benefits end up going to a hearing in front of an ALJ. This hearing is the most important step in determining whether someone is eventually approved for benefits. The assistance of a seasoned attorney who is well-versed in disability law can be the difference between your case being approved or denied.
