You should consider contacting NOSSCR referral service 800-431-2804. NOSSCR stands for the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives. A link to their website is below. As you know, the disability process is complex. Attorney representation can be beneficial, if not essential.
Once you receive your referral, conduct a thorough investigation into the representative's qualifications. I have prepared sample questions you should consider asking anyone you are considering hiring. They can be found in the link below.

I concur NOSSCR is a great resource, beware of of non attorney SSA Advocate firms which promise much may not deliver on complex cases.
This is not legal advice but a general comment on society.
NOSSCR is a great resource to find a local SS attorney.
