Gilbert E. Fisher Discusses Social Security

Filing SSDI Application

Our attorney can assist you with filing your Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) application. He will make sure the forms are completed properly, your doctor has provided a detailed report of your disability and how it prevents you from working, and submit your case for review.


In many instances, the initial application for disability benefits is denied. Mr. Fisher will make a timely request for reconsideration or hearing, and present the evidence before an administrative law judge, increasing the chances of your SSDI claim getting approved.


Our lawyer can handle an appeal if the Social Security Administration (SSA) continues to deny your request for disability benefits.

Resubmit Claim

If you have already made a disability claim on your own and it has been denied, our attorney at his Fresno law office can help you resubmit your case, attend your hearing, or file an appeal.

You Need a Social Security Disability Lawyer

People who have been hurt or disabled sometimes try to take matters into their own hands and file an online claim or speak with an SSA representative without legal counsel. Doing so may seem like a good way to save time and money, but important pieces of the puzzle can be overlooked which can be far more time-consuming and costly.

A knowledgeable Social Security disability lawyer who understands how the forms should be completed, what type of medical evidence the SSA looks for when evaluating a claim, and how to qualify for benefits can make all the difference when you are in need of Social Security payments.

Our attorney has been helping clients make claims, take necessary steps after a denial, and appeal SSDI cases since 2000. The process can be intimidating, but with Mr. Fisher by your side, you can feel confident in knowing you have a qualified Fresno attorney fighting for you as a disabled worker.

Qualifying for Social
Security Disability Income

To qualify for Social Security disability income, you must meet certain requirements. These include:

  • Suffering from a disability listed by the SSA as a qualifying disabling condition.
  • Providing robust medical evidence to show that the disability prevents you from engaging in substantial gainful activity. This element requires a claimant to prove that they are suffering from a disabling condition and the condition prevents them from working. The condition can be physical, emotional, or mental, but must be supported by reliable medical proof.
  • Accumulating enough work credits to qualify, which depends on the length of time you have worked. If you have not built up enough work credits for benefits, the SSA may deny your claim.

If you are denied, you do have certain rights, including asking that your case be reexamined and that a hearing be granted. The time period from filing to final approval can be held up at each stage of the process, making it imperative to put your best case forward from the start. Complete information and reliable evidence make it more likely that your case will proceed through the system in a timely manner.

Alternatives in the Meantime

In the meantime, you can look at other benefits such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI), certain food and health programs, and other benefits offered in your area. For a complete list of the benefits available to you and to learn what to expect when you decide to file your Social Security disability application, contact our Fresno or Salinas office.
