I have a friend who has applied for disability and been turned down a couple of times. Finally she is at the point of having to write a letter rebuffing the judge’s decision. She is a smart girl and it was fairly easy for her to find his errors. I told her there are Social Security and Disability Law education courses available so she can educate herself further.
West LegalEdcenter offers CLE (continuing legal ed) courses for lawyers and other legal professionals. I told my friend to check and see if she would be able to take a course regarding the Social Security Disability law(s) and see if she has further recourse. The great thing is the courses are offered in a variety of ways including podcsts, webcasts, and even on demand. The courses are affordable. It would definitely pay off for her to take one (or two) and see if she can help her case (which I am sure she can as I have seen many of the careless mistakes made on the “professionals” end of things).
West LegalEdcenter will not only potentially help my friend, but can be helpful to anyone in the legal field (or interested in many parts of the law). Their website is full of information on what is required for CLE credits in each state, a list of courses, and an FAQ section to answer any questions. Give it a try!
