You’re Hired!

I met with my attorney yesterday and he impressed both my wife and I, so we hired him.

I also filled out the final appeal with Social Security Disability asking for a hearing (the lawyer will represent me).  He stated that it should be pretty straight forward, since I have a fully documented condition, and gave my chances of winning at about 95%.

He’s also taking the case on contingency, so if he doesn’t win, I don’t owe him a dime.  If he does win, he gets 25%, or just over $5,000… which ever is lower (that sounds fair to me!).

He also went over the paperwork with my private insurance disability company and said that they should turn it back on with the appeal I have with them.  If not, he’s more than willing to take that case on too! (they said they’ll have an answer for me by September 29th).

    I hope that attorney turns out to be the Muther of All Pit Bulls and takes your insurance company to the wall for all the shit they have put you through. You deserve at least a million bucks in punitive damages from those incompetent jerks. Keep us informed. Jen and I are thinking about you and hoping for the best.

    Always thinking about you … well … whenever I click on my website. American justice is always about what you can afford and I bet your lawyer knows how to get the job done.
