Most importantly, don’t give up.
It’s frustrating — sometimes even heart-breaking — when the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies your claim for disability benefits. You might have been counting on those benefits to keep food on the table and support your household.
Appeals can be complicated. But often, it’s when you appeal that you finally get disability benefits.
Most people get denied from their initial application. But at Baynetta M. Jordan, P.C., Attorney at Law, we make it our mission to turn your denial into an approval.
No matter where you stand in the appeals process, we strongly encourage you to get legal help.
And you should get a lawyer who knows how the local disability system works. Baynetta Jordan knows the medical providers, Social Security offices and Administrative Law Judges who cover the Permian Basin.
We’re proud to serve hardworking residents of Midland-Odessa, Brownfield, Denver City, Seminole and all communities across West Texas.
If you were denied, your case isn’t over. We’ll evaluate your case for free.
Your hearing is often the most important stage in the process. This hearing takes place before an Administrative Law Judge and is the best chance to present your evidence in person. It’s very important that you and your evidence are fully prepared. If you’ve received a denial letter, we strongly recommend you call us for help.
Social Security sometimes brings in expert witnesses to testify about you. This can hurt your case. But we know how to question these experts to protect your benefits.
We present the evidence needed to help your chances. Hablamos Español.
Social Security’s own data shows you have a higher chance of being awarded disability benefits when you have representation. Since there are no legal fees if you don’t win benefits, you don’t have to risk anything by deciding to get legal help.
