SSD Reconsideration: What Should You Do? After your initial denial you have 60 days to file for "reconsideration." At this stage, SSA will bombard you with requests for information that you have already provided. In most cases, no matter how much evidence you provide, you will be denied again. A ...

I give one piece of advice to all of my SSD disability clients consistently. If they are uncertain about whether to proceed, I advise them to ask themselves one simple question: can I return to work in some form? If the answer is "yes" I advise them to abandon the disability process. For most peo...

So let me start this off by saying this. Probably one of the best attorneys I've ever had the experience to deal with. Mr. Buckley has some of the highest standards, levels of professionalism, and courtesy I have had the pleasure to experience. If you hate dealing with the SSA, this is the guy to really get it done for you. They were pushing around my fathers case at a snails pace for over 3 years.... 3 YEARS! I've contacted many lawyers to get some help to file an appeal, but nobody wants to take on a open case already. Gave Mr. Buckley a call, explained the situation to him, and he gladly took the challenge. Not too long after, we got a decision from the SSA that we wanted! What they couldn't do in 3 years on their own, Mr. Buckley did in a little under 2 months! I definitely and most highly recommend Mr. Buckley for any cases revolving around the SSA.

After dealing with the "system" on my own for close to two years I found Mr. Buckley. What a prize! A lawyer who speaks English not legalese and who took the time to explain things and speak to me honestly. On top of which he knows his stuff, which was a refreshing change. I cannot recommend Mr. Buckley highly enough.
