Posted by a Social Security client
Unfortunately I believed any lawyer representing disability clients would be doing so because they believed in their clients. After no contact from my attorney himself over one year period of time I realized it was about making money for doing nothing but filing paperwork which probably wasn't even done by him. He was nice when I first met him and then prior to the disability appeal hearing he was short with me, cutting me off, not giving me a chance to ask questions and wasn't as educated in the SSDI process as I expected him to be. Now going through the final stages after being approved I am finding out crucial things related to income I was receiving for some work I was doing that he should have told me that might create problems. Highly advise to avoid this attorney. Reading through the decision by the judge I can see he could have done much more for me because the decision was barely in my favor. Like having more recent medical records. I asked if he had any or needed them and he said no, only if I wanted to make my disability onset begin sooner. After reviewing the decision I can see it would have strengthened my case to have them. Bad advice from him.
