Appealing your Denial…
Don’t give up! We tell our clients four things if they receive a denial letter: Appeal. Appeal. Appeal. Appeal.
It can be frustrating when you know you cannot work and your claim for disability is initially denied. The process to appeal can be long and tedious, but success is often achieved. However, you have a limited amount of time to file for an appeal. It’s important to call us if your claim is denied.
A denial isn’t the end of your claim. We know the process. We will file a Request for Reconsideration on your behalf.
If your Request for Reconsideration is denied, we can request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. If an Administrative Law Judge denies your case, we can present your case before the Appeals Council. Finally, it the Appeals Council denies your case, we can appeal in Federal Court. We’re with you all the way.
Contact our office today to discuss your Social Security Disability claim. We’re one call away.
If you have a Social Security hearing scheduled…
If Social Security has notified you of an upcoming hearing, it’s very important to be prepared. You are strongly encouraged to get legal representation.
Makris Law Firm has over 35 years of experience helping Texans. 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
- question witnesses
- cross-examine any medical and/or vocational experts who testify at your hearing
- file appeals in a timely manner (if necessary)
- represent you at each stage of your claim
Attending your Social Security hearing alone is risky. Our attorneys will meet with you face-to-face before the hearing to help to present your case. Social Security statistics show that you have a higher chance of winning if you’re represented by an attorney.
Your chances in front of a tough Texas judge…
The Administrative Law Judges in Houston and around Texas are tough.
In Houston, they only approve benefits 32 percent of the time, according to 2016 statistics from the Social Security Administration.
Some individual judges award benefits in only 25 percent of their cases, or less.
Judges in Texas as a whole award benefits 38 percent of the time, which is less than that national average of 44 percent.
You’re already dealing with the extreme stress of health problems that keep you from working. The last thing you want is to face a tough Texas judge on your own.
This is another reason you want us by your side.
Your chances improve with Makris Law Firm’s deep knowledge of the Social Security Disability system and the landscape in Texas
In our cases, we have an approval rate ranging from 40 percent to 60 percent, beating the Texas odds.
Give yourself the best chance and contact our office now.
What does it cost?
We will not charge you any legal fees in a Social Security Disability case, unless you win. The most we will ever charge is 25% of your past due benefits,
