No Fee Unless We Win

Social Security Disability Lawyer John E. Horn of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, P.C., just won a Social Security Disability claim at the claimant’s second hearing.   Horn & Kelley had won an appeal from the denial of benefits at claimant’s first hearing and followed the case down to Danville, Illinois, more than a hundred miles away, to win.  .

Social Security granted our client’s claim after a denial at the first hearing and a successful appeal to the Appeals Council.  Her claim was made on the basis of obesity, degenerative disc disease of the cervical and lumbar spines, chronic fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, and hypertension.  Most applications are denied.  Then it is necessary to file an appeal called reconsideration.  Most claims are denied at reconsideration.  Then it is necessary to file another appeal requesting a hearing by an administrative law judge.  Many claims are won at the administrative law judge level, but if you do not win, an appeal must be filed with the Appeals Council.  The Appeals Council denies most appeals.  Social Security used to allow sixty-five percent of claims overall, but now it is allowing only forty percent of claims  We aim to win every claim without a hearing, but Social Security is just a big insurance company, and like any other insurance company, it only wants to take in premiums and not pay benefits.  That means you need a Social Security Disability Lawyer who will if necessary take your case to the United States District Court, the United States Court of Appeals, or even the United States Supreme Court.
