Fairhope, Alabama, Disability Benefits Lawyer
An initial denial of a Social Security Disability (SSD) application is not uncommon. However, it is very important to have a highly experienced SSD attorney handle your appeal. If you do not appeal in a timely manner, you could potentially lose a lot in past-due benefits and have to start the process all over again. Having an attorney involved, especially at the administrative law hearing, can really make a difference in the outcome of your case. The economic down turn has made it difficult for many people and has put extreme pressure on the government. Therefore, it is harder than ever to make a successful SSD claim or appeal. That is why you need all the help you can get, including an experienced lawyer.
More Than 20 Years of Experience
At The Law Office of Wendy A. Pierce, in Fairhope, Alabama, our SSD attorney has more than 25 years of experience. Unlike large law firms where a new associate could be handed your case, our seasoned attorney, Wendy A. Pierce, will personally handle your SSD and appeals case. She will be there for you every step of the way with compassionate and knowledgeable SSD advice. Wendy served as a Social Security lawyer for the Office of Hearings and Appeals, where disability hearings are conducted. In addition, she is a sustaining member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives, and is a regular speaker at SSD seminars.
There is a lot at stake here. We understand the stress and worry of a disabling injury and that you have worked hard your entire life.

To alleviate any financial pressure that you may be experiencing, we offer our SSD representation on a contingency basis, meaning that you do not pay us unless we are successful in helping you recover benefits.
Social Security Disability (SSD) Appeals
After an initial denial of an SSD application, the first appeals level is to the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. A hearing is held before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). This is where the experience of an attorney comes into play and is very critical. Our skilled attorney can represent you at this hearing and present the right evidence, medical records and medical opinions.
The next appeals level is to go before the Appeals Council. If this is unsuccessful, appeals can then be made in federal court. Every case is different, and we encourage you to consult with attorney Wendy Pierce about your's.
In extreme circumstances, applications can be expedited but there has to be a very extreme hardship such as a house foreclosure.
