Phoenix Social Security Disability Attorney Fights for Your Benefits from Start to Finish
Accomplished disability law firm assists clients statewide
At the Law Offices of Fred J. Fleming in Phoenix, we are dedicated to helping clients throughout Arizona receive the Social Security Disability benefits they qualify for. Our strong team of advocates brings to the table more than 45 years of experience of practicing disability law. We leverage this experience by implementing strategies that have yielded positive results in many of the 20,000 disability hearings we have handled. Whatever physical or mental impairment you have suffered, we can competently represent you and ease your stress during this overwhelming time.
Knowledgeable attorney assists with your initial disability benefits application
Approximately 70 percent of Social Security Disability applications are denied at the initial application level, so it is vital to have a capable lawyer to assist you at this critical stage of your claim. We can walk you through the application and ensure that all information you give is accurate. We can also help you explain your disability so that the Social Security Administration is made fully aware. Our disability lawyer reviews the criteria that the administration considers and makes sure that your application clearly demonstrates that you meet these standards. We also help you gather and assemble medical documentation and other evidence to support your claim.
Attorney provides skilled advocacy through the appeals process
If your claim for benefits is denied, you have a limited amount of time to appeal. Your disability lawyer can request a hearing before an administrative law judge, at which he or she can:
- Present your testimony — Your lawyer can ask you questions to help give the administrative law judge a complete picture of your impairment.
- Examine witnesses — Your lawyer can call other witnesses to testify, such as family members who assist with daily tasks and colleagues at work who saw your health decline and negatively impact your job performance.
- Cross-examine the vocational expert — The Social Security Administration hires an expert witness who gives an opinion about available jobs that you can perform. Your disability lawyer can narrow down these jobs by making sure the vocational expert fully accounts for all of your symptoms and limitations.
If your claim is denied at the hearing level, we can assist you with the further stages of the appeal process, including asking the Appeals Council for a review of the hearing decision or pursuing your claim in federal court.
