Federal Court

Seeking recourse through the Federal Court marks the final stage in the appeals process for Social Security Disability benefits after exhausting all administrative options, including the Appeals Council review. This phase offers applicants the opportunity to further challenge an unfavorable decision made by the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Upon receiving an adverse decision following the Appeals Council review, applicants have the right to file a lawsuit in the United States District Court. This judicial review involves presenting the case to a federal judge who independently evaluates the evidence and the legal arguments presented. Not every decision is appropriate for District Court review. Our experienced attorneys specialize in identifying errors in SSA’s decision-making process and presenting a compelling case for appeal.

During the Federal Court proceedings, our attorneys actively represent and advocate for our clients. We present compelling legal arguments and evidence, articulating the severity of the client’s disability and the impact on their ability to work. Our aim is to demonstrate to the federal judge that SSA’s decision was not based on substantial evidence or was legally incorrect, compelling the judge to review the case with fairness and impartiality.
