I am sure you have heard countless people tell you shouldn’t hire an attorney for your Missouri Social Security Disability appeal hearing. Maybe you have asked yourself “should I hire a Missouri Disability lawyer?” I have also heard all the different reasons you shouldn’t hire one:
The lawyer is just trying to take your money.
The lawyer is just going to drag the case longer and take your money for doing no work.
I get it. Most people don’t like dealing with lawyers and we are not always popular. Legally you don’t need a representative and are free to represent yourself. However, the simple fact is you probably stand a better chance if you have a disability lawyer for your Missouri Social Security Disability hearing.
Do you need a disability layer for your Missouri disability hearing? Answer a few short questions:
1) Do you know how to review your medical records?
It amazed me when I show a client things in their medical records that they did not know about.
Also just as often people believe there are many things in their records that are actually not mentioned “my doctor told me….” and there is no evidence of this in the medical records
2) Do you know the weaknesses of your case?
More importantly, do you know what steps to take to strengthen your case and address these weaknesses?
Frankly most people believe their case is much “easier” than it really is due to any variety of reasons, including desperation. This does the no good ultimately.
3) Do you know how to cross examine a vocational expert in a hearing?
If you have to go to a hearing, you may have an expert at the hearing. It may be a vocational expert ( or possibly a doctor). Do you what questions to ask the vocational expert?
4) If you appeal your case, do you know the standard of review to the next level?
If your case gets denied by a judge, do you know what to do in order to win your appeal to the next level?
Again, I am not saying you need a disability attorney to represent but you need to ask yourself if you are truly prepared to handle this properly and give you and your family the best chance to win the benefits you deserve for you and your family?
