    I FINALLY got notice that my hearing before a judge will be Feb. 6. I have gone this far without a lawyer, and don't really feel like giving somebody 25% of my money at this point. When I started out in this, I called everyone in Portland and Seattle, and no one would take my case. The psych that SSDI hired has reported to them that I shouldn't be trying to work...at all. I even called and checked with lawyers who advertise that the specialise in ME/CFIDS cases and will travel to represent you.

    How many people have gotten a settlement who had no lawyer? Thanks.

    Zerpid:
    In my state they have "Legal Sevices" and they handle SSI case for free. It might be worth to check in your state.
    Goodluck.
