    I have represented SSA disability claimants for a living since 1997. So much depends on the individual at SSA adjudicating the claim. Some are smart, work hard, and want to do the right thing. Some are dumb, lazy, and will cut corners to deny every possible claim for reasons I still do not understand.

    The worst are smart, work hard, and try their damnedest to deny every possible claim.

    Get a lawyer from and prepare for the worst.

      I have copied down this information and passed it on to my friend. She said that the website looks promising, but the horror of the experience is unparalleled. However, all her pay is going to medical treatment anyway (she works three full time teaching jobs at online for-profit colleges, because that allows her to work without walking).

      Everyone is innocent of some crime.
