Sometimes you win when you get a second hearing.

No longer able to work because of multiple health conditions, a woman took her case to an Administrative Law Judge.
She suffered from mood disorder, personality disorder, bipolar disorder, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, peripheral neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative disc disease, neuritis and scoliosis.
But the judge denied her claim.
With the help of Howard Olinsky, she went to the Appeals Council.
The Appeals Council found the ALJ did not properly evaluate the medical evidence on her psychiatric disorders and called for a new hearing.
In the second hearing, she won full benefits.
