Were You Turned Down For Social Security Disability Benefits?

If you have been denied Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, you do not have to give up. Instead, turn to a qualified lawyer who can help explore your options for recovering the benefits you deserve. At Pittman & Pittman Law Offices, LLC, our attorneys help disabled people in Wisconsin and Minnesota pursue the relief to which they are entitled.

Why Was My Claim Denied?

Just because your initial application for SSD or SSI was denied does not mean that you do not have a good case. The Social Security Administration turns down the majority of applicants. In many cases, our lawyers achieve success through the appeals process. This process can involve a number of different steps, including:

Reconsideration: When your initial application has been denied, you can request a reconsideration of your claim. Sometimes, all it takes is a little more documentation or a more sympathetic set of eyes to approve your claim.

Hearing: If your request for a reconsideration is denied, you have the right to request a hearing before a judge. This will provide you with the first opportunity to present your case in person.

Appeal: If your claim is still denied after your hearing, we can help pursue relief through the appeals process. Our lawyers understand this process and how to present the most persuasive case in your favor.

We can provide you with legal counsel at any stage of this process. However, the sooner we get involved, the sooner we can get to work asserting and protecting your interests.
