If your case is denied by the Social Security Appeals Council, it is now time to file a federal appeal. This is accomplished by filing an appeal in the federal district court in the state where you live.
The Rocky Mountain Disability Law Group is one of a small number of law firms that are specialized in Social Security Disability federal appeals. We are committed to representing claimants until they either win or have exhausted their legal remedies. In the case of Social Security disability appeals, the Appeals Council is only a “final agency decision” making the case “ripe” for court review.
The Rocky Mountain Disability Law Group handles nearly 200 Social Security disability federal appeals each year and we boast a very high success rate. Our attorneys remain current on the law and are thought leaders in the field. This is one of the reasons so many people trust our law firm with their Social Security disability federal appeals.
Our team also goes to great pains to keep our clients and the general public informed on changes in the law regarding Social Security disability federal appeals. We feel that too few claimants know about their legal right to review by a federal court. According to the Social Security Administrations internal figures, fewer than 20 percent of claims that could be reviewed by the federal courts, ever get that level of due process.
This is why we appeal nearly every case that the Appeals Council denies to the federal courts. Our law firm represents a substantial percentage of the Social Security Disability Appeals currently active in the District of Colorado. Our goal in this endeavor is to positively affect the law for our clients and Social Security claimants generally.
The SSDI attorneys at Rocky Mountain Disability Law Group believe you deserve to have someone on your side that is willing to persevere for you and your claim.
If your Social Security disability claim is denied at the hearing level and then by the Appeals Council, your case is ready for Social Security federal district court review.
