Livonia Lawyers Leading Clients Toward Benefits

At Bahrie Law, PLLC, we have 45 years of experience protecting the rights of Michigan residents. Among the clients we help are our neighbors who, due to disabilities, can no longer work and need Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits to survive. We understand the SSD system is complex, and we strive to make the application and appeals processes clear for our clients.

Whether you are a first-time applicant or need to appeal denied SSD benefits, we will give your case our undivided attention. We are familiar with local SSD judges, and we use our experience with the system to your advantage.

Our Livonia SSD lawyers represent clients who have hearings at the following metro Detroit Social Security offices:

  • Detroit: 477 Michigan Ave., Detroit, MI 48226
  • Livonia: 19575 Victor Parkway, Livonia, MI 48152
  • Oak Park: 25900 Greenfield Road, Oak Park, MI 48237

Applicants should keep in mind the current processing time for each office. The Livonia and Oak Park offices currently have processing times of nine months, and the Detroit office currently has a processing time of nearly 11 months.

Am I Likely To Get The Benefits I Need?

One thing SSD applicants must keep in mind is that there is no guarantee their benefits will be approved, whether initially or on appeal. Their odds of success often depend on the administrative law judge handling their case. Some administrative law judges have lower approval ratings – meaning the percentage of SSD cases where they approve benefits – than others. When a case is assigned to a judge with a low approval rating, however, that does not necessarily mean an applicant will be denied benefits. The opposite can be true as well.

Because every SSD case is unique, applicants should work with one of our disability benefits attorneys to determine their approach. Our knowledge of local administrative law judges helps us prepare in a way that gives clients the best chance of prevailing.

About Our Livonia Location

Livonia was first established as a township in 1835 and became a city in 1950. In its early years, Livonia was a farming community. After World War II, not long before becoming a city, General Motors and Ford opened plants in Livonia, signaling its transition to industry. Today, Livonia boasts a population of nearly 100,000 and is the 10th largest city in Michigan.

Our Livonia office is situated near the intersection of Interstate 275 and Six Mile Road (Exit 170). We are across the street from Laurel Park Place mall and two miles south of the Livonia Social Security hearing office. While our central location makes us convenient for office visitors, we serve clients in the Livonia area by phone and video conference as well.
