ALJ Disability Hearings

Texas ALJ Disability Hearings Attorney

Individuals who have had their Social Security Disability benefits claims turned down in the initial application and reconsideration can appeal to have their cases heard in an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) disability hearing. At the Houston, Texas, law office of David Dopkin, Attorney at Law, we advocate on behalf of children and adults in ALJ disability hearings.

If you have been denied a claim, contact us today for a free telephone or office consultation and case evaluation. Lawyer Dopkin has been handling SSI and SSD claims for eighteen years and has represented more than 2,500 clients in their appeals. Trust our experience.

We will meet with you to discuss your needs and collect any necessary information about your personal history and medical history, including doctor visits, hospital visits, and all medical records. We will have your doctors complete the necessary forms and answer questions about your disability in a manner that is helpful to the Social Security Administration (SSA) to handle your claim.

There is typically a long waiting period between the time you file an appeal for an ALJ disability hearing and the time the hearing takes place. If there are any last minute updates regarding your case that need to be made before your hearing, we will address those issues to ensure you receive the comprehensive advocacy you deserve.

We will skillfully and confidently argue the case on your behalf at the hearing. If it is helpful and appropriate to your case, we can question family, friends, doctors, and vocational experts to help persuade the Administrative Law Judge to approve your SSD benefits claim.

There are two ALJ hearing offices in Houston. However, if you live outside of the metro area, the SSA will send a judge to you. If your case is again denied in the ALJ disability hearing, we will continue to advocate on your behalf throughout the rest of the SSD appeals process, including the Appeals Council and in the Federal Court of Appeals, if necessary.

At the law office of David Dopkin, Attorney at Law, we handle all SSD and SSI benefits cases on a contingency basis. We will not charge a fee unless we win your claim. If you are unable to work because of a mental or physical disability, or if your disabled child is in need of SSI benefits, contact us today.
