Your Local Advantage
When you’re trying to win social security disability benefits, you face a complicated system, thousands of rules and potentially a long process.
It helps to have someone by your side who knows the local landscape. Dan knows the doctors in our area, the Social Security administrative law judges and the people who work in the Social Security office in PORTLAND.
You get every advantage you can when you work with a local Maine disability lawyer.
Dan believes strongly in meeting you in person before you have a hearing before a judge. Some lawyers only meet you at the hearing.
He gets to know you. He understands more deeply the challenges you face because of your disability. He makes sure you’re prepared for your hearing.
Get Support When You Face A Denial
You’ve got enough stress already, with health problems to worry about, medical expenses and a loss of income on top of that.
When you get a denial of your initial application for Social Security Disability benefits, it can feel overwhelming.
Dan Emery and his staff at Daniel Emery Law Office will:
We also know how to help you turn a denial into an approval. You have four levels of appeal:
- Reconsideration: We help you re-submit your application to a new group of reviewers at the Social Security Administration (SSA) who give your claim a fresh look.
- Hearing: This is your best chance to make your case to a person who has the authority to approve benefits. We help you prepare to see an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) for the SSA. We present your arguments to the judge and question experts called by the government.
- Appeals Council: If you disagree with the ALJ’s decision, we help you present your case to this group of reviewers at the SSA.
- Federal Court: Your last step is to file a lawsuit in federal court. For this, you need a licensed attorney experienced in Social Security Disability cases.
Our neighbors in Southern Maine or Central Maine look out for each other. You’re trying to get back a sense of financial stability. You trying to move forward with your life after the shock of a disability keeping you from work.
