The requirements for a successful disability claim are not the same for every person applying for it. In fact, the standard of proof changes depending on the claimant’s age, education, and employment background. The preparation for a disability hearing before an Administrative Law Judge should start the minute a potential client calls you about their case. Richard Seelig of Seelig Law Offices, LLC will discuss the requirements of proving a disability in front of an Administrative Law Judge and provide practical strategies to prepare both your client and your record for an administrative hearing.
Richard Seelig has worked at Seelig Law Offices since its inception. He has helped clients obtain disability benefits with the Social Security Administration, and with various civil service pension systems. His achievements in this field were recently recognized by Super Lawyers in his selection as a 2015 Rising Star for the New York Metro Area. Richard enjoys traveling, fishing, and billiards.
