Horn & Kelley, PC, Attorneys at Law, national leaders in social security disability law, won a disability claim without a hearing Oct. 17, 2013, because their client met social security listings 12.04 Affective Disorders and 12.08 Personality Disorders. The paragraph A criteria of listing 12.04 were satisfied because claimant had suicidal ideation, sleep disturbance, feelings of worthlessness, poor concentration, and anhedonia. The paragraph A criteria of Listing 12.08 were satisfied because claimant showed mood lability, aggresivity, excessive dependence, and impulsivity. The paragraph B criteria of both listings were satisfied because claimant’s impairments caused moderate restriction in activities of daily living, marked difficulties in maintaining social functioning, marked difficulties in maintaining concentration, persistence or pace, and one to two episodes of decompensation, each of extended duration. This was the opinion of a psychologist of the Social Security Administration in responses to interrogatories. The opinion of claimant’s treating physician was consistent. Claimant had a Global Assessment of Functioning of 40, indicating a serious mental impairment. Call Horn & Kelley for a free evaluation of your disability claim today. 888-921-5297.
