We will do the leg work for you.
We will assist you with the routine matters associated with your claim, such as filing your appeals in a timely manner and completing standard Social Security questionnaires. We will obtain your doctors’ records, as well as reports and interrogatories. These things can be very burdensome to you, but are routine for us. Additionally, we have a highly skilled staff that is dedicated to keeping your claim running smoothly. They are able to quickly and knowledgeably answer your questions. Although hiring an attorney will not speed the process, we regularly follow the status of your claim to be sure it is being processed properly.
We understand Social Security’s evaluation of medical or mental health impairments.
Social Security claims may be won on the basis of one impairment, either physical or psychological, or can be won on the basis of a combination of impairments. Some impairments are given special consideration by Social Security and these cases may granted by compassionate allowance. Other impairments may be specifically listed in Social Security’s Regulations and these cases should be granted based on the severity of the specific diagnosis. There are other times when vocational factors such as age, education, and work history are important. We understand the complexities of law related to Social Security and are experienced in reading medical records and understanding the nature of individual diseases and injuries. We know what information is important to obtain from your doctors. We can help the Administrative Law Judge assigned to your claim understand these issues and help you tell your story.
We understand how Social Security benefits are calculated.
The Social Security Administration is required to calculate benefits correctly for individuals who are entitled to receive them. If your claim is approved, we monitor your claim to be sure that you are paid correctly. We understand that there are problems that may arise when a person collects Social Security and Workers’ Compensation. We can guide you through these matters.
We do not collect an attorney fee unless we win your claim.
Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal works on a contingent fee bases, which means that we only charge you a fee if we are successful and you win your claim.
