At the Law Offices of Fred J. Fleming, with offices in Denver, Colorado and Salt Lake City, Utah, we can help you determine if you are eligible to receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration.

We prepare your SSD claim for initial review
We help you prepare your application and gather supporting medical documents to ensure that your materials accurately and thoroughly represent your disability. Having skilled legal representation greatly increases the likelihood of having a claim approved.
We help you appeal a denied SSD claim
If your initial claim is denied, you have the right to have an attorney represent you. We can guide you through all aspects of the appeals process.
- Appeal hearing — At your appeal hearing before an administrative law judge, you can testify in person, and we can present evidence on your behalf.
- Vocational expert — At the hearing, an SSA vocational expert will provide an opinion about how your disability might or might not affect your ability to work. It is critical to have an attorney present for cross-examination during this stage, as the expert’s testimony can significantly impact your case.
- Physicians’ opinions — We can suggest changes or make objections to questions the judge may send to your doctor and also request another medical opinion.
If you win your case, we can make sure your monthly benefit amount is calculated accurately so you receive all the benefits you’re entitled to. If you lose, we can request a review of the hearing decision by the Appeals Council. If necessary, we can represent you in federal court for a final appeal.
