At an August 6th Social Security Disability Hearing in Washington, D.C., our client was told that she would prevail then and there. The written decision was written September 4th. Our client had several severe disabling conditions. However, she did “not have an impairment or combination of impairments that meets or medically equals one of the listed impairments” required under Federal law. She was also considered under the Social Security regulations to be “a younger individual age 18-49” and educated (high school). However, Herndon Reston disability and injury lawyer Doug Landau was able to show that she “is unable to perform any past relevant work.” Landau was also able to demonstrate, and the Federal judge found that, “considering the claimant’s age, education, work experience, and residual functional capacity, there are no jobs that exist in significant numbers in the national economy that the claimant can perform.” Based upon the evidence presented by ABRAMS LANDAU, Ltd. the claimant was awarded full benefits going back to May of 2005. Very few cases result in a decision being rendered from the bench, in Court, but on those rare occasions when this does happen, it is a wonderful validation for all of our hard work. Plus, those clients know that they will be getting a “FULLY FAVORABLE’ decision in the mail and disability benefits thereafter.
