Social Security Disability Hearing
  The bad news is that it currently takes approximately 14 months to have a hearing scheduled in Orlando. The good news is that with experienced representation, this is your best chance to receive a favorable determination of your disability.

Who Hears My Case?
  Your case will be assigned to the Orlando Office of Disability Adjudication & Review (ODAR). This is separate division of Social Security and the administrative law judge (ALJ) that hears your case will not be influenced by the fact that your claim was previously denied.

What Happens at my Hearing?
  Hearings will usually last an hour or less.  The ALJ can request the testimony of vocational and medical experts.  The hearings are informal, without strict rules of evidence.  Generally, either your attorney or the ALJ, or both, will question you about your medical condition and why it prevents you from working

When Do I Receive my Decision?
  Normally, the ALJ does not announce a decision the day of the hearing.  Instead, the ALJ will issue a written decision and detemine your case either favorably or unfavorably.  In the event, you are not successful, you have the right to appeal the decision of the ALJ.

  If you representation at your hearing, please contact Orlando Social Security lawyer, Randy Maddox  .
