    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Looking For Good Lawyer In Northern Wisconsin

Recommended Posts

All,

Not for me, but my wife. She was denied today for her Social Security Disability Claim. I'm sure she has a claim and could win with the right lawyer. I did read how they are compensated, so I understand that part.

Her initial claim was for Chronic Pain Syndrome from bialteral knee surgery, for which she is diagnosed with, however, not on the Social Security list of maledies. She had many more complications and medical issues and we could have proceeded in the wrong direction with the (1st/initial) claim.

Anyway, we (she) has 60 days to request an appeal.

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks,

Hamslice

Actually going to Mayo Clinic in Rochester today. She is having 2 minor (but compicated) surgeries tomorrow.

I recommend contacting the National Org of Social Security Claimants Representatives at http://nosscr.org for a referral in your area. The one I had referred from them won me 7 yrs retro. jmo

All,

We did our own reconsideration, by ourselves as she recieved 2 additional diagnosis's for two new maladies shortly after the denile. Then two months ago she was ultimatly diagnossed with Progresive MS. She talked to the local SS office when she recieved that news and they had her send in those doctor reports. Also, when at her Neurologist last week, the doc said that she had been contacted by SS and that she had sent her stuff to them and also the second opinion that she had sent my wife to, to confirm the Progresive MS. Her Neurologist stated that the SS usually wants a second opinion and that should suffice. She, the neurologist, offered this up and we did not ask for it, so maybe they are working on my wifes case.

Anyway, I have been reading some of the other SS posts and have a question:

My wife stopped working 11/2011 and initially filed 11/2012. If awarded SSDI, would it go back to when she filled or to when she stopped working? Minus the six months, etc...

Thanks,

Hamslice

They will probably go back to 11/2011, however they may also decide to go w/the date of the MS onset, as it's a new disability and from what I gather you haven't appealed their initial denial. jmo

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
