Do I need an attorney?

It is always beneficial to have a qualified attorney represent you if you are denied Social Security Disability benefits after your initial application. A qualified attorney can review your complete medical history with you and prepare the necessary paperwork to file for a reconsideration of denial, stressing your disabling conditions. If your reconsideration is denied, as is often the case, your attorney will prepare and present your case to an administrative law judge. Your attorney will be present with you at the time of the hearing to make certain that all appropriate information is presented to the hearing judge.
