Legal Representation in Social Security Cases

All claimants in social security matters are entitled to be represented by an attorney. Most claims for social security disability benefits are denied at the first level. Consultation with Randall Fielstra will assist in determining whether an appeal should be taken from a first or second denial of benefits. Claimants are entitled to hearings before independent judges hired by the Social Security Administration to hear claims. An Attorney will gather all relevant medical information and present claims to the hearing judge arguing the relevant and appropriate law. Appeals can be taken into the Federal court system including trial and appellate courts in the event of an unsatisfactory decision. Attorney fees are only charged if benefits are obtained for a disabled person. The customary fee is 25% of accrued benefits up to a maximum. The fee is subject to the approval of the Social Security Administration or Judge. All denials of benefits should be evaluated by a lawyer.
