Wettermark & Keith secures a reversal of judge's decision by the Appeals council for their client

Wettermark Keith is pleased to announce exciting news from the Social Security department. While our attorneys have an extremely successful track record in obtaining favorable outcomes for our clients, sometimes the journey is longer than others. When a client receives an unfavorable decision from an Administrative Law Judge, the available recourse is to appeal that decision to the Appeals Council, the body responsible for reviewing cases for mistakes made by the previous judge as to the law or facts. Unfortunately, due to the strict standard of review, the Appeals Council fails to find a reason to overturn or remand the prior determination in the vast majority of cases. However, our attorneys are committed to ensuring that our clients receive the benefits they deserve.

This month, Attorney Jessica Brooks secured a reversal of the judge’s decision by the Appeals Council for her client. A more common outcome when the Appeals Council takes issue with a judge’s decision, is a remand to the judge in order to conduct a another hearing, a process which is time consuming and does not always result in a positive outcome. A reversal constitutes an outright order of payment of benefits to the claimant and only happens in 2% of cases! Ms. Brooks added, “I understand that this is often a long and frustrating process for my clients. This was a case that went to hearing in November of 2011 and we received the Appeals Council reversal in February of 2014. However, the fact that my client will be compensated for that time in back pay makes the determination and hard work worth it.” Wettermark Keith looks forward to future Appeals Council reversals as we continue to provide our expertise and experience to our clients.
