I havent posted in a while because nothing is new on my case but I am here everyday reading your posts and learning ALOT.
I am in Canada so I know the rules are a bit different elsewhere, but I know you can relate to my question. I hired an attny after my first denial, it is now at the reconsideration level. Here in Canada we only get back pay of 15 months maximum whether it takes years to get approved does not matter. Minus the 4 month waiting period = 11 months total backpay. When I went for my first consult with the Disability Lawyer she said it could take up to a year to be approved. My question is , do you think the lawyers dont try so hard at the reconsideration level so it will go to the courts and draw out the time frame so they will get the maximum amount of their 30 % fee for the 11 months ? On the plus side they did say I had a good case, otherwise I dont any lawyer would take your case ? Any comments or advice on this question would be greatly appreciated. Hoping for everyones approval.
