Appeal Social Security
Disability Denial in Portland

If You Received a Denial Letter from Social Security,

Your claim for disability isn’t over.

It can be incredibly frustrating and even heartbreaking when you need Social Security Disability benefits, but the Social Security Administration (SSA) denied your claim for benefits. But, you have the opportunity to appeal.

While the appeals process can be complicated and take time, you can still win your disability claim on appeal.

In fact, if you were denied, you aren’t alone – most people who apply are denied at the initial level. At Daniel Emery Law Office, we want to help you turn your denial into an approval. Plus, if you don’t win, you pay no legal fees.

Important – You only have 60 days to appeal from the day you receive your denial letter. Don’t miss the deadline to appeal!

Most disability denials are overturned at the hearing level. This hearing, before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), is usually the most critical stage in your case. It’s the best chance you’ll have to present your medical evidence and your case in person.

For your hearing, it’s important that you and your medical evidence are well prepared. If you have a hearing scheduled, we strongly recommend you call us for legal help as soon as possible. Social Security’s own statistics show you have a better chance to win disability benefits when you have the help of a disability representative.

You will always meet with disability attorney Dan Emery so you receive valuable information and advice to improve your chances of winning your appeal. Dan will also meet with you again shortly before your hearing so you are fully prepared for your hearing.
