Disability Appeals & Hearings

Salt Lake City SSDI and SSI Appeals Hearings

Unfortunately, we often must take your case to a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge. You will appear and testify under oath. A medical expert and a vocational expert may also testify. For experienced and skilled representation at the appeal hearing, contact Utah SSDI lawyer Ward Harper in Salt Lake City.

Our law firm experiences its greatest success for our clients at the administrative appeal stage of a Social Security disability claim denial. Since 2001, we have handled over 788 SSDI and SSI cases, and we have won more than 99% of them, usually without the need for further appeal. In the rare cases where we lost before a Social Security administrative law judge, we were usually able to achieve favorable rulings before the Appeals Council or in U.S. District Court. But it is very important to have an experienced attorney at your disability. Further appeals are decided on the basis of evidence presented at this hearing.

Ward handles every hearing himself, and never delegates the proof of your benefits claim to an attorney with less experience.

Utah SSDI lawyer Ward Harper has spent his entire career in Social Security disability and SSI claims and appeals. He began as a law clerk at Utah Legal Services in Salt Lake City, where he later became chief counsel for SSDI and SSI claims litigation. He then spent three years as a staff attorney with the Salt Lake City office of the Social Security Administration's administrative law judges. In that capacity, he reviewed cases on the appeals docket and advised the judges about the legal issues involved in cases. Ward Harper has represented SSDI and SSI claimants as a private attorney since 1994.

Every legal matter is different. The outcome of each legal case depends upon many factors, including the facts of the case. An attorney's success in past legal matters should not be relied upon to predict a successful outcome in your own case.
