Social Security Disability Appeals

Had A SSD Claim Denied?

An initial denial of a Social Security Disability (SSD) application is common. However, it is very important to have an experienced SSD attorney assist with your appeal. If you do not appeal in a timely manner, you could lose a lot in past-due benefits and must start the process all over again. Thankfully, with help from The Law Office of Wendy A. Pierce in Fairhope, you can file your appeal with confidence.

How We Can Help You

Our SSD attorney has more than 25 years of experience fighting for SSD benefits. Unlike many law firms, our experienced attorney, Wendy Pierce, will personally handle your SSD appeal. Wendy has substantial experience with all aspects of SSD claims, served as an attorney for the Social Security Administration in the Office of Hearings and Appeals and is also a sustaining member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives.

What We Fight For

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. We vigorously advocate for your rights and for your SSD benefits. To reduce financial pressure, our SSD representation is done on a contingency basis, meaning that you do not pay attorney fees unless we are successful in helping you receive benefits.

The Appeals Process

After an initial denial of an SSD application, the first appeals level is to the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. 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, we can make appeals in federal court. In extreme circumstances, applications can be expedited but there has to be a very extreme hardship such as a house foreclosure.
