Claimant Awarded $42,000 Following Remand

April 17, 2015. We had obtained a remand from the Massachusetts District Court last year on the basis that the ALJ had failed to give appropriate weight to the opinion of her treating rheumatologist and had failed altogether to discuss confirming documentation from her long time chiropractor. Also in this case, the court found convincing our argument that the ALJ had improperly ignored the fact that the claimant had worked for 29 straight years prior to her alleged onset date of disability when finding her not credible. At the hearing, we made a minor adjustment to the alleged onset date, to correspond to her achievement of age 55 and the ALJ ruled from the bench in her favor.
