Monterey Social Security Disability Appeals

Helping win Disability Appeals in San Jose, Central California, and surrounding areas.

Have You Received a Denial Letter from Social Security? Just because your claim for Social Security Disability benefits was denied, it doesn’t you’re your case is over. Having your claim denied is heartbreaking, especially when you know you can’t work. While the appeals process can be long and frustrating, winning benefits is still possible

Applying for the first time is difficult. In fact, most initial applications are denied. At Angelina Valle and Associates we want to help turn your denial into an approval. If we don’t win your case for benefits, you pay no attorney fees or expenses.

Important! If you’ve received a denial letter from the Social Security Administration, you only have 60 days to appeal. Don’t miss this deadline!

Your appeals hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) is the most important stage in the process. This hearing is your best opportunity to get you evidence in front of an ALJ. It’s important you and your evidence are fully prepared. We strongly tell people at this point in the process to get legal help.

Angelina Valle and Associates can:

  • review your Social Security file
  • get you and your case ready and set the strategy
  • collect additional evidence from your doctors and medical providers
  • make legal arguments, prepare your testimony
  • question witnesses (for your side)
  • cross-examine any medical and vocational experts who testify at your hearing
  • appeal your case on the federal level if necessary

Social Security often calls in expert medical witnesses to provide testimony. The testimony from these experts can harm your chances of winning benefits. At Angelina Valle and Associates, we know how to counter these witnesses.


"Most people win benefits with an experienced disability lawyer."

According to Social Security’s own statistics, people win benefits more often when they have representation than when they don’t. Since there are no attorney fees if you don’t win benefits, the decision to get legal representation is an easy one.

Angelina Valle and Associates can help at all four levels of Social Security’s appeals. Whether you need to apply for benefits or were already denied, contact us to talk about your case. If you don’t win disability benefits, there’s no cost to you.

We represent people unable to work at all levels of appeal.
