Never go into a hearing without a knowledgeable representative.

A 45-year-old woman could no longer work because of multiple health problems: depression, anxiety, torn ligaments, arthritis, left knee disorder, right knee disorder, ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux, obesity and carpal tunnel syndrome.
She filed for disability benefits. When she went to a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge, she had no representation.
The judge denied her claim.
Olinsky Law Group took over her appeal. Howard Olinsky took her case to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
The Federal Court found the ALJ’s decision was full of inconsistencies. It ordered a new hearing for the woman.
This time, she won a fully favorable decision and years of back benefits.
