SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION AFTER YOUR CLAIM HAS BEEN DENIED
Attorney Ronald P. Sokol will represent you before the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) when you appeal your previous denial.
If he is retained to represent you, he will assist you in:
A. Reviewing the complex rules and regulations with you which may help explain why your claim was denied.
B. Requesting a reconsideration of your initial claim for SSDI or SSI benefits.
C. Determining what additional medical evidence to obtain and present.
D. Gathering additional medical evidence to support your claim.
E. Guiding your health care providers as they document what they observe and report about your disability.
F. Completing or correcting appropriate claim form, to avoid inaccuracy or inconsistency.
G. Writing a brief emphasizing your most compelling evidence for the consideration of the Administrative Law Judge.
H. Preparing you and any of your witnesses to testify at the hearing.
I. Examining any government witnesses, including doctors and vocational experts requested by the Administrative Law Judge to testify at the administrative law hearing.
J. Requesting statements from additional witnesses as appropriate; from a vocational expert, for example.
K. Most importantly, Ronald P. Sokol will go into an administrative hearing prepared to rebut, to the greatest extent possible, the Social Security Administration’s adverse medical evidence that caused the initial denial of your right to SSDI or SSI benefits.
