Talk to a Social Security disability lawyer at Dudley DeBosier to help you through this often overwhelming and confusing process.
Appealing a Denied Social Security Claim
If your case was not approved or you did not receive proper compensation, our Social Security Disability lawyers will help you file an appeal. You must file an appeal within 60 days of receiving your decision letter.
