Our Atlanta social security disability law firm will file your new DIB (Title II, SSDI) application on the internet, so you will not have to wait in a long line at your local Social Security District Office https://secure.ssa.gov/ICON/main.jsp Your SSI (SSI child and Title XVI) application cannot be filed online due to income and resource questions. We will help you answer these questions, and mail this SSI application directly to the Social Security District Office.

We will also file your Request for Reconsideration online if your DIB or SSI application is denied at the initial level by the Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency (GVRA), Disability Adjudication Services (DAS) https://gvra.georgia.gov/disability-adjudication-services Finally, we will file your Request for Hearing online if your disability case is denied at the Reconsideration level, in order for you to get a hearing at the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR).

We have many years of disability experience representing disabled adults and children at hearings before Administrative Law Judges (ALJs) at the following ODAR (hearing offices) in the Atlanta area: the Atlanta, GA ODAR, which covers Atlanta (Downtown), Atlanta (West), Columbus, La Grange,
Marrietta, Newnan, Southlake-Morrow, and Villa Rica, GA http://www.disabilityjudges.com/ state/georgia/atlanta-downtown; the Atlanta North ODAR, which covers Gainesville, Gwinnett, Toccoa, and Winder, GA; http://www.disabilityjudges.com /state/georgia/atlanta-north; and the Covington, ODAR, which covers Athens, Covington, Decatur, and Griffin, GA. http://www.disabilityjudges.com/state/georgia/covington-ga

Our law firm will not abandon you at any step in the process, because we want you to get all the disability benefits that you deserve. If you relocate, we will often travel to the ODAR (hearing office) closest to where you live. We have successfully represented clients in these out of state cases. If your claim is wrongfully denied by a Judge (ALJ), we will send a Request for Review, along with a brief, identifying the legal errors, to the Appeals Council in Falls Church, VA. If your Request for Review is denied by the Appeals Council, and your case has legal errors that can be overturned, we will ensure that an appeal is filed in the United States District Court. You can count on our Decatur social security disability law firm, in the Atlanta, GA area, to fight relentlessly until you win.
