Story of Justice: CCLA Advocates for Eve’s Social Security Benefits

Eve has struggled with depression and PTSD for over 10 years. Due to past traumatic events she endured, she is afraid of male strangers and has difficulty completing daily activities, such as going to the grocery store. Eve tried applying for Social Security disability benefits multiple times on her own, even attending a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). However, each time, she was denied. After submitting another new application in January 2021, Eve contacted CCLA for help.

A CCLA attorney worked with Eve throughout her case to develop strong evidence and we represented her at her hearing. When Eve’s psychologist agreed to testify at her hearing, the attorney worked with the psychologist to help him prepare his testimony. At the hearing, Eve’s psychologist was able to explain Eve’s limitations due to her mental health conditions, and the ALJ commented on how helpful the psychologist’s testimony was. This time, with CCLA’s representation, the ALJ approved Eve’s case! After fighting to get SSI benefits for almost 10 years, Eve was so grateful that CCLA’s representation finally allowed her to get her benefits.
