Question: Do you handle Social Security appeals?

Answer: You bet we do! We handle all kinds of Social Security appeals.

Here are all possible levels of review of a Social Security disability case:

  • Initial
  • Reconsideration — the first level of appeal
  • Request for hearing — the second level of appeal. This is where a case goes before an Administrative Law Judge.
  • Appeals Council — the third level of appeal and the last one within Social Security.
  • U.S. District Court — the fourth level of appeal and the first one outside Social Security.
  • U.S. Court of Appeals — the fifth level of appeal. Very, very few cases go this far.
  • U.S. Supreme Court — the sixth and final level of appeal. They only hear your case if they want to. Not even one case a year goes this far. I have never taken a case to the Supreme Court but, maybe your case will be the first. I hope not for your sake since it takes several years to get this far.

My firm’s goal is not to take your case up on one appeal after another. Our goal is to win your case as early in the process as possible. Unfortunately, Social Security can be stubborn. If they keep denying you, we may have no choice but to keep appealing.

The Charles T. Hall Law Firm handles appeals not only for our clients but for clients of other law firms. They turn to our experience when their clients need to appeal to the U.S. District Courts.

We help Social Security claimants in a wide area of North Carolina. Whether you are in a bigger city like Raleigh or Greensboro or a smaller town like Farmville or Raeford, we can help.
