Evanston Social Security Appeal Lawyers Operating in the Greater Chicagoland Area

A person seeking Social Security Disability benefits can attempt to obtain benefits at several stages, respectively: an initial application, a request for reconsideration, an administrative law judge (ALJ) hearing and before the Appeals Council. Even if an individual is turned down at all four of these stages, he or she can take the case to a higher authority by appealing in federal court. A successful appeal requires representation from an experienced attorney.

Extensive Experience In District And Circuit Courts

If you have been denied benefits by the Appeals Council, our firm can represent you at the federal court level. At The Law Offices of Barry A. Schultz, P.C., we represent people in district and, in some cases, circuit courts, including:

  • U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Central and Southern Districts of Illinois
  • U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana
  • U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Wisconsin
  • The United States Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit, located in Chicago, which hears all federal claims from Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin

Our firm has extensive experience with disability appeals in federal court, having represented clients in over one thousand five hundred cases in U.S. District Court and over 120 cases in the United States Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit. Mr. Schultz and his staff are skilled in writing effective briefs, having won many decisions on behalf of the firm's clients. See examples of successful cases in the federal courts.

What About Fees?

We do not charge upfront legal fees for clients seeking disability benefits — our firm works on a contingency basis in these matters. If you are appealing the termination of benefits or an overpayment claim, there may be a charge for our services.
