I had my hearing for my disability back in early February and got a denial today. My lawyer I'd dropping me because she says there's nothing more they can do. I can file an appeal that will take up to 18 more months for an answer, and she says there is likely an 80% that I will lose. Of course, she also looked me right in the eye a month ago and told me it looked really good and I had most likely won and then when her assistant called me today she acted surprised that I was upset at losing because it was "in her notes from the hearing" that it went badly! So, not sure I trust this lawyer much anymore. Anyway, it's already been 3.5 years and I don't want to lose that time. I have fibromyalgia, 2 bulging discs, migraines, etc. All he said was basically if I lost weight I could work! 😠 What should I do next? File on my own... try to get another lawyer? ???
