Virginia ALJS

The Social Security Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) in Charlottesville oversees cases from people who live in Halifax.

  • In early 2017, the administrative law judges in the Charlottesville office were approving benefits about 33 percent of the time.
  • The Virginia state approval rate was 41 percent.
  • Nationwide, it was 44 percent.

It should be simple to apply for Social Security Disability benefits, but it takes a lot of work and patience. The Charlottesville ODAR can take 18 months to process a case.

So anything that eases the process helps.

Numbers from the Social Security Administration have shown your chances of winning Social Security Disability benefits are better when you have professional representation.

Your Halifax Video Center

When you have a hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ) on appealing your Social Security Disability claim, usually your only choice is traveling to their office.

You have another, more comfortable option with Cunningham Law Group.

Our office in Halifax has a video hearing center that connects you to your judge.

This saves you travel time and lets you speak to the judge in a familiar, friendly setting.

Instead of going to a Social Security office in Danville, Farmville, Lynchburg, Charlottesville or Richmond, you can come here.

It’s understandable if you get nervous meeting a judge. With video hearings, we give you confidence and dignity.

We worked with the Social Security Administration (SSA) to establish the video center because we’re committed to doing everything we can to help you when you need benefits.

We’ll evaluate your case for free.
