I Can't Wait. I Want An Attorney Who Will Get Me On Social Security Disability Now!

Sep 12, 2011 Comments Off on I Can't Wait. I Want An Attorney Who Will Get Me On Social Security Disability Now! by

I don’t blame anyone for wanting to get on Social Security disability now. I don’t blame anyone who is frustrated with me or some other attorney who can’t get them the help they need right now. Unfortunately, it does not matter how urgent your need is. Social Security is likely to take its own sweet time no matter how inconvenient that is for you or your attorney.

I try hard to make sure my clients know how long things are going to take. Unfortunately, people often hear what they want to hear and want to blame me or some other attorney for things that are beyond our control.

We get a fair number of calls from Social Security disability claimants who are mad at other attorneys because of how long their Social Security disability claims are taking. I’m sure other attorneys get calls from my clients about the same thing. Generally, I and other Social Security attorneys suggest you stay put with your attorney. If the problem is delay and you switch from another attorney to me, it probably won’t be long before you’re mad at me too.

Don’t just fire your attorney because of how long things are taking. You may find it hard to find a new attorney. I may not be quite as eager to take your case if you’ve already demonstrated that you want to blame an attorney for things that are beyond the attorney’s control.
