Credibility critical to Disability determinations

When discussing appealing the denial of a social security disability application I will have a 90 minute to two hour conversation with clients in my Gainesville office. One important topic we discuss is credibility before the Administrative Law Judge. Often cases are decided by whether the judge believes the claimant’s symptoms are as serious as they testify at the hearing. There are a number of suggestions which we discuss that can reassure the judge that you are fairly reporting your conditions. If you have been denied and need a lawyer’s help appealing give us a call.
