We Write the Appeals Council Briefs; You Get the Remands!

Sometimes it can seem like preparing a Brief for the Appeals Council is an enormous waste of time and effort, since an overwhelming percentage are routinely denied.  But that’s not always the case.  In the last 2 months our referral sources have notified us of 4 remands (two of which are pending and two of which resulted in fully favorable decision at the remand hearing) as well as one case which was actually reversed by the Appeals Council and paid back to the alleged onset date of 2015.

Our Appeals Council brief writing service is available to our referral sources at no cost.  Our experienced staff reviews the ALJ denial, identifies errors of law, and provides you with a succinct, concise brief that you can file with the Appeals Council.  Our concept of brief writing is simple – make it short, to the point, and provide citations to specific errors of law.  In our experience, the ability to quickly identify issues without wading through mounds of extraneous documents is well appreciated by the staff at the Appeals Council.
