Do I Really Need An Attorney To Appeal a Social Security Denial? Social Security Lawyer Tampa
What: Do I really need an attorney to appeal a social security denial?
No, but as Abraham Lincoln says, “a person who represents themselves has a fool for a client.”
If your Social Security Disability claim has been denied and you are filing your Request for Reconsideration or Request for Hearing, Sharon Barrett, a Social Security Disability attorney recommends that you have a licensed attorney representing you in your Social Security Disability claim.
You should never go to a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge without an attorney who can help develop the medical and vocation evidence necessary to succeed in a Social Security Disability claim. Statistically, the chances of an unrepresented claimant prevailing before an Administrative Law Judge are comparatively slim to those claimants who choose to have an attorney represent them during the Social Security Disability claim’s process.
