Administrative Law Judge Hearings

Helping Federal Employees Prepare for Administrative Law Judge Hearings

Administrative Law Judges are appointed to arbitrate cases for a wide variety of federal agencies. They typically oversee cases that fall into three categories: entitlement, regulatory, and enforcement cases. Entitlement cases include social security disability, federal disability retirement benefits, and other benefit claims. If you are denied certain benefits as a federal employee, you may be able to bring your case before an Administrative Law Judge.

Standing Before an Administrative Law Judge

During your appeal hearing, an Administrative Law Judge needs to review your “exhibit file,” which includes your medical records and work history, before making any decisions regarding your disability claim. This file also needs to list the reason you were originally denied benefits. The Administrative Law Judge may request the presence of a medical specialist or vocational expert who can provide knowledgeable information regarding your medical records.

As your legal representative, we can litigate on your behalf in court and present critical medical evidence to the Administrative Law Judge. By strengthening your disability claim, we can help you secure a positive case outcome that yields essential benefits.
