When you hire Pekoe, Reed, Wright and Associates (PRW) to represent you in your Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) we notify Social Security and immediately begin preparing your case.
PRW takes responsibility for the details of your claim and informs you of your case’s progress.
At PRW you are represented by the same local advocate from the day you hire our ﬁrm until the day your case is ﬁnalized. Most importantly, you have access to your advocate by phone, email or in-person meetings. Fees are not charged unless you win!
How does PRW & Associates, LLC help you with your Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim?
In-person consultation: Unlike many of the large firms where you don’t meet your advocate until the day of the hearing, at PRW you are not just a number. You develop a one-to-one relationship with someone who cares about your case. We fully understand what a reward of benefits means to you and your family.
Analyze your situation: We analyze your situation, whether it is disability, retirement, children’s or survivor’s beneﬁts to determine whether you are entitled to disability.
File your claim: We help you file your initial application if you have not already done so.
Prepare appeals: We prepare and ﬁle the mountain of paperwork Social Security requires at each step of the appeal process.
Obtain evidence: We secure your pertinent medical records and other necessary evidence (e.g., school records or employment records) and submit them to Social Security.
Obtain afﬁdavits: In an effort to establish the best case based upon all relevant circumstances, we obtain afﬁdavits from friends, family or colleagues regarding your limitations.
Schedule an examination: We may request Social Security to schedule a consultative examination for you or refer you to a doctor or psychologist for an examination when deemed appropriate.
Get your doctor’s opinion: We may ask your doctor for his or her medical opinion regarding your medical problems and how they limit or restrict your abilities.
Prepare you for hearing: Prior to your hearing we meet with you in person to prepare you for your hearing.
Prepare hearing briefs: We prepare written statements for the Administrative Law Judge’s (ALJ’s) review about why your disability warrants beneﬁts.
Represent you at your hearing: We represent you at the administrative hearing.
Review award letters: We review the award letters Social Security sends to be sure you are getting the correct amount of beneﬁts.
Every case is different, but every case deserves our full attention. Our team at PRW strives for the Social Security Administration to make the most favorable decision regarding your claim as quickly as possible.
