When Social Security Says “No”, Call Mike
If Social Security denied your claim for disability, we can help.
Michael Kalish and his experienced staff have handled thousands of cases before the Social Security Administration including claims for adult disability insurance, child disability benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, over-payment cases, termination of disability benefits, and medicare benefits. If you hire our firm to represent you on a claim for benefits, we will vigorously, proactively, and professionally advocate on your behalf to win your case and get you the benefits you need and worked so hard for.
Our promise to you is that we will work with you each step of the way to make sure that you understand the process, that your questions are answered, and that the right information concerning your claim for disability benefits is provided to the Social Security Administration.
We are a full-service Social Security Disability law firm - it's all we do.
Some law firms want to pick and choose their cases, only accepting clients at particular stages of the process. Other firms only handle Social Security cases in addition to handling other types of legal representation. At the Law Offices of Michael P. Kalish all we do is Social Security disability. We specialize in pro-active, professional, and competent representation of Social Security disability claimants. Filing for disability benefits can be a daunting and overwhelming experience especially when a person is dealing with medical and financial crisis. If you have a case and you hire us to represent you, we will take on the burden of dealing with Social Security and guide you through the process from start to finish.
We will help you complete the forms and questionnaires that Social Security will send you and we will help to get your medical records to Social Security for their evaluation of your claim. If Social Security denies your claim for benefits, we will appeal that denial. If your case ends up before an Administrative Law Judge for a hearing, we will work to ensure that your claim is properly and fully prepared prior to your hearing and on the day of your hearing we will be at your side before the judge to forcefully advocate for your rights. Social Security Disability is our only area of practice - its what we do everyday, all day. Let us put our knowledge, expertise, and experience to work for you to win your claim for Social Security disability benefits.
We Know How Hard This Process Can Be.
Getting denied your claim for benefits is a gut-wrenching experience. You know you can't work but a government bureaucracy has told you that it's possible for you to still hold down a full-time job. The people reviewing your claim at Social Security may not have even reviewed or considered all your medical records before saying "no". However, this denial doesn't have to be the end of your claim for benefits. In fact, about two-thirds of all initial applications for benefits are denied each year nationally. This is just the way the Social Security Administration does business - even what seem to be solid, "no-brainer" claims for disability benefits are often initially denied. We are here to guide you through this bureaucratic obstacle course and we will work hard to ensure that your claim receives the attention and consideration it deserves.
