The Law Office of Teague Gonzalez serves all of South Florida and is at your service. We have years of experience helping people obtain Social Security Disability benefits. We understand disabling medical conditions, the guidelines that administrative law judges use to evaluate claims and how to present persuasive cases on behalf of people who are unable to work due to disability or illness. We will provide personalized, holistic advocacy to you during this stressful time.
The Law Office of Teague Gonzalez provides comprehensive representation in disability denial cases. When we represent you, we will:
- Collect and evaluate medical records in support of your appeal.
- Work with you one-on-one to prepare you for the Social Security hearing.
- Represent you at the Social Security hearing.
- Answer questions and seek to overcome objections to the approval of your claim.
- Work to minimize any offsets which may affect the benefits you receive.
- If necessary, appeal your case to the Appeals Council and to Federal Court if mutually agreed upon.
Your case will never be handed off to a paralegal. You will work directly with your attorney. Our goal will be to help you get the Social Security Disability benefits that enable you to live with dignity.
At the Law Office of Teague Gonzalez, we believe that people who are unable to work because of disability deserve to obtain monthly benefits and Medicare health coverage. The Social Security Administration however, rejects a large percentage of initial claims. But if your initial claim or request for reconsideration has been denied, do not give up hope.
There are many advantages to working with us:
We are local — Our attorneys are familiar with local medical providers, the Social Security offices in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Monroe, and Collier counties and even the idiosyncrasies of individual administrative law judges in our area.
You will work directly with an experienced attorney — Your case will never be handed off to a paralegal.
We understand disabling medical conditions — Our years of experience give us the medical knowledge needed to work with doctors and properly evaluate complex, disabling conditions.
Our attorneys know the Social Security process — We handle Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) cases every day. Our attorneys are thoroughly familiar with the rules and procedures of the Social Security Administration’s Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) — and how to get results for our clients.
We will prepare you for the hearing — Your attorney will explain the process and how you can aid your case by accurately describing your disability and its effects. We will even take you through a mock hearing so you know what you can expect when you walk into the hearing room.
The Law Office of Teague Gonzalez does not give up — We provide aggressive representation at all stages of the legal process and, if mutually agreed, we can appeal your case to the Appeals Council and, if appropriate, to Federal Court.
No Benefits, No Fee — Our representation is on a contingency basis, which means that if you do not win your case, you will not have to pay a fee.
