It is not a requirement to hire an attorney to represent you at the hearing.

Although, having representation by either a Social Security disability attorney or representative may be beneficial.

These professionals are experienced with these types of claims and will lead you through the process, properly, prepare you for your hearing, and attempt to fight for what you deserve.

Having representation is optional, but you may find it beneficial in your claim.

Experienced disability lawyers, having navigated numerous disability appeals, are adept at identifying the critical questions to ask during the disability hearing and pinpointing the necessary medical documentation to submit for a successful outcome in your Social Security disability claim.

Why should I hire an attorney?

Because they:

  • Are licensed professionals held to strict standards.
  • Can answer questions you may have regarding the disability process.
  • Can assist you in completing forms you may not understand.
  • Can explain confusing correspondence you may receive from the Social Security Administration regarding your disability appeal.
  • Can help gather medical records from your treating medical professionals to submit in an effort to win your disability appeal.
  • Can submit forms to your treating medical professionals in order to show the Social Security Administration the severity of your disability.
  • Can represent you at your Social Security disability appeals hearing and ask questions of any witnesses that may attend the disability hearing.
  • Can help argue any legal issues that may arise at your disability hearing that you may not understand.

It is important when appealing your disability claim to always remember you have a right to be represented.  The Social Security disability hearing may be the most important legal situation you ever find yourself in, so a disability claimant should take all the steps necessary to get a favorable result.
