I run a legal aid program and have one lawyer, who has no support staff, who spends full time on SSA and SSI Disability cases.
It depends on the volume you get. A legal aid program in a big city should be able to receive many callers.

I think you are asking how man disability cases your attorney should be able to handle per year. I recommend that you contact other legal aid clinics and discuss with them. I know that many of these clinics do not accept cases that could generate a fee for a lawyer. Are you expecting the lawyer to handle others types of cases in addition to social security? How much time will your attorney spend on disability cases? Best of wishes.
What do you mean by administrative decisions? ALJ decisions, initial denials, or recon denials? No support staff!!!! I can't imagine an attorney wanting to handle these cases with no support staff whatsoever. I would aim low as there are a lot of administrative duties that would be handled by support staff in a typical private setting.
