    Hey guys been a while. I just found out a couple days ago that I have a hearing coming up that will be between my lawyer and a judge. I dont have to be there. It is something new they are trying in my county due to 7000 people waiting more than two years. To speed things up. Anyway my lawyer wants me to come in tomorrow and my wife thinks we will have to pay for me to go in. Is that true, will they take more? Also I have been disabled for 3.5 years, they will owe me at least 2 years of back payment, what will that equal? and how does it get paid.

    I dont mean to sound stupid I just want to know my lawyer is being honest. In fact since becoming ill I am stupid and they could easily screw me. I guess I should not care, It just makes me sick to see so many getting filthy rich off the poor and sick.

    Is there anything I need to look out for or will they treat me honestly?

    Thanks.

    HOW FAR BACK YOU GET BACK PAY BUT i DO KNOW THAT LAWYERS can only get a certain percent of your back pay no matter how much you go in or not If I remember correctly it is 25%.
