Social Security Disability
Disability does not discriminate. It can happen to anyone at any age. Applying for and attempting to obtain Social Security benefits can be both a confusing and frustrating process for the claimant. The Gordon Law Firm will assist the client through the complexities of the process with both compassion for the plight of the client and an aggressive approach to obtaining benefits. The Social Security Administration (“SSA”) uses a methodology called a Sequential Evaluation process to determine whether individuals are disabled and entitled to benefits. Unfortunately, there is a lack of uniformity and inconsistency in the decision making process due to thousands of examiners across the country applying slightly different standards. Most claims are denied at both the initial and reconsideration level and that is all the more reason why legal counsel is strongly recommended for every SSDI claimant.
Kiersten Gordon has a proven track record of securing successful claims for clients locally and nationally as well. In fact, her success includes a substantial number of favorable claims awarded to clients by submission of an “On the Record Request” brief in advance of an actual Administrative Law Judge hearing saving the client the time and expense of having to attend a hearing not to mention any physical challenges in doing so. These decisions are rare but very possible with the proper legal representation and part of the value that Kiersten brings to her clients. If we do attend a hearing, the client can rest assured that he or she will be thoroughly prepared by Kiersten and be comfortable knowing what to expect and that he or she is in very capable hands.
