The Approach: Attorney Keith Wells
Whether you’re filing for social security disability benefits, appealing a denial or are faced with a notice of cessation, attorney Keith Wells can help. He works closely with his client with what’s needed for success. The simple fact is that many SSI and SSDI claimants don’t know how to fill out the required paperwork properly or how to prepare their case for a hearing. Attorney Keith Wells knows what specific thresholds are required by Social Security and knows exactly what disability judges look for.
If you’re initial claim has been denied by Social Security, Keith Wells knows all the levels of appeals and guides clients through each one. At the same time, he will develop a specific legal strategy to address the basis for the denial. Most SSDI and SSI claims that are denied require a hearing in front of an administrative law judge or Social Security officer if you appeal the denial. Keith will prepare your case and prep you for testimony before any hearings. Perhaps, more medical documentation is needed or a medical opinion is needed from a higher level medical professional. For example, in the case of a mental disability, medical documentation may be needed from a psychiatrist instead of a physician or nurse practitioner. Either way, Keith will have you prepared with what you need. If you’re facing a social security disability issue, call attorney Keith Wells for a free consultation. There are no fees unless he wins your case for you. Call today.
