I have seen several cases recently in which a person’s lawyer suddenly drops their Social Security Disability case.

This usually happens with one of these large out of state or national law firms who never see you at any point in the process until the day of your hearing.

These law firms sometimes look at your case and decide they cannot win so they fire you and cut their losses.

This does not mean your case is over.

You are probably better off without a law firm who has no contact personal contact with you, does not talk to you until the day of the hearing, and who has no idea who the judge is for your case.

If this has happened to you, then you should call an experienced Social Security Disability Attorney within your state.

The new lawyer can contact the Social Security hearing office and take over your case.

The fee stays the same according to Social Security rules and regulations.

Have your new attorney explain what they think is needed to win your case.

This may mean going to a specialist, telling the doctor about your limitations, or asking your doctor to write a letter for you.

It will certainly mean preparing well in advance of the hearing for the questions the Judge will ask and what the vocational expert testimony means for your case.
