At Schneider Law Offices, we know the law, and we know how to prepare disability cases for hearing. Our staff and attorneys solidify cases by obtaining medical records as well as statements from doctors and witnesses. Because our firm has tried thousands of Social Security cases, we also know how to present the case to the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). Most people are awarded their benefits at the hearing level. Cases that are denied after a hearing can be appealed to the Social Security Appeals Council. If lost at the Appeals Council, they can be appealed to the United States District Court, United States Court of Appeals and even to the United States Supreme Court. Schneider Law Offices does many appeals and many of those clients ultimately receive benefits. All Social Security fees are contingent, regulated by the Social Security Administration and subject to approval by the Social Security Administration. Generally fees are limited to 25% of past due benefits with a $6000 cap. If you don't get benefits there is no fee.
