I have bipolar anexiaty hearing loss as child and autritus in foot joints take prescrips for and had ssi as child for hearing loss
I have changed your question to put it in the Social Security section. There is just no way to know at this point if you won.
So, be at peace as best you can. Do something pleasant to keep your mind off of this.
This is not a legal opinion given the question that you posed. It is guidance based on common sense recommendations that you may choose to consider and some thoughts to help clarify the matters that you ask about. I am licensed only in the state of Texas. There are many other facts that exist or may arise that you did not express in your question in this forum that are/could be critical to providing an accurate response. Thus, the response I give is very general. I strongly suggest getting a private consultation with an attorney. That is likely to be in your best interest if you have a legal problem , question, concern, or need. Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you. Best of luck !
What does your lawyer think? How on earth could an attorney that wasn’t there give you an intelligent answer to your question? And why would you even listen to an attorney foolish enough to offer an opinion about a case that he/she knows nothing about?
As was Suggs, you need to try and let it go as dwelling on it is just going to fuel your anxiety. These things take time and you will simply have to wait until the ALJ issues his/her ruling.
Good luck and take care.
THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE - NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE ATTACHES - FOR INFORMATION ONLY. DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY IN THIS FORUM. Legal advice ONLY comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an expressed (written) agreement of representation that forms attorney-client confidentiality. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles - NOT your state's specific laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this educational exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights.
Sounds promising based upon the very limited information you posted but your lawyer would be in a far better position to comment.
answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.
We recommend that you contact the representative who went with you to your hearing. Unfortunately, it takes a while to receive a decision from an administrative law judge. Good luck.
