I accept New Jersey disability claims at all stages – whether you are thinking about applying for Social Security disability, have had your application denied, or have had your request for reconsideration denied. For Social Security disability, only approximately 35% of all initial applications are approved and about 15% of all requests for reconsideration are approved. However, 55% of claims are approved when the reconsideration denial is appealed for a hearing before an administrative law judge.

While I accept claims at all stages, I will sometimes advise claimants to file their initial applications for disability benefits by themselves, and if they are denied, I will begin representation by helping them file their appeal or at their hearing. When applying for New Jersey disability benefits, there are many forms that must be completed in addition to the initial application.

If your application for Social Security disability benefits is denied, my representation includes assisting with and completing the various appeal forms and appearing with you to present your claim to the Social Security judge. For your hearing, I will also gather and assemble all the necessary evidence, prepare you and the witnesses, and represent you at the hearing.

My experience handling Social Security disability cases has provided me with insight into what the Social Security Administration needs to find you disabled. One frequent issue is that the Social Security Administration did not receive from your treating physician all the medical information it needed to make its disability determination. I will work with you in obtaining that needed medical documentation. In addition, I learned how to capably read medical records from my past experience as a pharmacy technician in a teaching hospital. This skill helps me find deficiencies in your medical records and helps me obtain the evidence necessary to present the full picture to the Social Security Administration.


 If you live in Northern New Jersey or its surrounding areas and want assistance with your application for Social Security disability benefits or appealing a denial, I can help. If you have any questions, please call me at (973) 726-9674. I am happy to personally answer any questions you may have.
