  • Administrative Law Judge hearing
  • Hearing with the Social Security Appeals Council
  • Filing a lawsuit in federal district court

It is important to work with an attorney during the SSD appeals process. The attorneys at  Shows & Smith Law Firm PLLCcan explain what information is needed at each stage, and can look to highlight any information that was previously excluded or overlooked. We will work to obtain the medical information necessary to effectively prepare your appeal, as well as look for other ways to highlight your need for disability benefits.
