Finding SSDI attorney?


Recommended Posts

Thanks.. motorgrrl, yes that did help. I wasn't crazy about the results though... it came up wiht a few solo attorneys who practice a bunch of stuff with SS tacked on.

Kablume, I'll look there. thanks.>>>>I don't see anything there about finding an attorney... I admit my brain is fried today... but I don't see anything.

around here, you can't turn on the TV without seeing an ad for an attorney who takes SSI/SSDI cases as a specialty.

same here, but i'm afraid to trust them.

I am too. I would go through someone from that site [bar association], even if it means emailing or calling some different firms that are under the pro bono listings, if you are more comfortable with that to see how they handle SSI/SSDI. [if you do get someone from an ad, they should have no problem sitting down with you and going over your case/situation with you.]

Most will not represent you pro bono unless you are in the appeals process, though, as far as I have heard.

This is a great write up that I found. It is from a woman with chronic fatigue, but it is still very applicable. Another thing you can do is go to the nami website. They have a way for you to request names of legal representation in your area. But again, I am not sure if you will find someone to represent you before the appeals process and I don't know if they refer for SSDI. But since the legal professionals volunteer, I imagine they have experience with it.

SSDI -also for cfs [or fibromyalgia] but still a pretty good example with good points even given the date. It doesn't seem to have changed much.

I tend to think it is easier to relate in some ways to the experiences of those with CFS and/or fibromyalgia in terms of SSI/SSDI because of the whole "invisible illness" [supposedly] thing.

very true. it's hard to tell if they're out to scam you or they're legit.

I'm in the process of hiring an attorney. I got one off of the ads on tv. supposedly they all work on the same principal of 25% of back pay or $5000.00 whichever is less. does this sound right? anyone else

have any experience on this?
