BEFORE you get a lawyer, if you are in the states, contact your local Center for Independent Living. Let me know where you are and I can direct you to the nearest one. CILs will help you for FREE as long as you haven't worked with a lawyer. They can guide you through the process and answer any questions you have. I work for a CIL and our Independent Living Specialists are amazing! It's their job to know disability, social security and all the paperwork that goes with it.
