The hearing is the most critical stage in your case.
The hearing before the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) is the best opportunity to present evidence supporting your claim. Attending your Social Security hearing alone is risky. Harvey Sackett will appear with, and represent you, at your hearing before the Administrative Law Judge. At Sackett and Associates, we will ensure you and the evidence are well prepared.
Social Security sometimes brings in expert medical witnesses to provide testimony. They can hurt your chances of winning benefits. We know how to counter these experts. We will provide valuable information and advice to improve your chances of winning at the hearing.
If you have a Social Security hearing scheduled.
If Social Security has notified you of an upcoming hearing, it's crucial to be prepared. At Sackett and Associates, we've been helping people win Social Security Disability Benefits for over 40 years. We'll use our knowledge and experience to:
understand your impairments
analyze your Social Security file
prepare your case
obtain important evidence such as medical records
prepare your testimony
make helpful legal arguments before and during the hearing
cross-examine any medical and/or vocational experts who testify at your hearing
Most people win with an experienced lawyer.
According to Social Security's own statistics, benefits are more often awarded to people who have legal representation than those who don’t. Since there are no attorney fees if your claim is not approved, there is no risk to you, and the decision to get legal representation is an easy one.
