Have You Been Denied Benefits? We can help!

First: You are not alone

The Social Security Administration denies 65% of all initial claim applications and takes an average of 120 days to do so.

Many get discouraged and will abandon their claims. Don't let that be you!

Second: Good representation is a must

Patience and perseverance are required to win even with strong claims. It takes an average of 15.5 months to get to the appeal level where more than half of claimants win with professional representation.

Don't give up before the all-important Hearing Level and miss being awarded the benefits you deserve. Persistence and good representation pay off when it comes to SSDI claims.

Third: Bring your denied claim to Prato & Reichman

We will work tirelessly to turn your denied claim around.

Unlike other firms that use non-lawyer "advocates" or mere "representatives", the attorneys of Prato & Reichman are professional litigators who have practiced in courts throughout California up to and including the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The stage of the appeals process where persistent claimants win is in a proceeding before a judge. Our litigation savvy attorney's know what evidence needs to be gathered and how to examine or cross-examine the witnesses, medical, or vocational experts the judge in your case will be relying on.
