Your hearing is the most critical stage in your claim. Appearing before the Administrative Law Judge is your best chance to present evidence.

The best way to improve your chances of winning your appeal is by working with a lawyer. Our attorneys will meet with you before your hearing so you are fully prepared.

Attorney James Trauring will:

  • review and dissect your Social Security file
  • prepare your case and create the strategy
  • assemble additional records from your doctors and medical providers

  • question witnesses (for your side)
  • cross-examine any vocational and medical experts who testify at your hearing

Social Security sometimes brings in expert medical witnesses to provide testimony. They can hurt your chances of winning benefits. We know how to counter these experts.


Most people win benefits with an experienced lawyer.

According to Social Security’s own statistics, people win benefits more often when they have representation than when they don’t. Since there are no legal fees if you don’t win benefits, the decision to get legal representation is an easy one.
