Reviewed the case, listened, made sure all paperwork was updated and correct. Were able to be seen in less than 30 minutes on a walk-in basis and answered questions for the case.
Update: able to send info by e-mail on further info, lawyer waiting on the SSI office for a court date, still getting updates when we ask.
Final update: court date came, lawyer was there. We did not win, but have been referred to an appeals lawyer who can help. This office did not charge us as they had not been able to win our case. They have, however, given us to another lawyer that feels we can win the appeal. Will continue to refer people here as this office does do a lot for their clients.
