What you need to know

The foundation of your case will be the communication you have with the Social Security Administration and your doctor.  You can make, and sometimes break, your case with the initial statements and forms you deliver.  Talk to me first!  The law does not allow a fee unless you win, and, if you win early, the fee may be substantially less.
