    I was denied SSDI. I found out last week.

    I've been a bit paralyzed at the task of finding an attorney to help with the appeal.

    I've left a message with Nancy McCombs who was recommended by someone but I'm a bit nervous that I haven't heard back from them yet. I only have 50 days left to appeal.

    I've been reading about Allsup on a couple boards and they have received mixed reviews.

    I'm still considering them.

    Does anyone else have any recommendations? I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA.

    Thanks caledonia. I filed my initial application and was denied.

    I downloaded the form to file for reconsideration. I wasn't sure whether to go ahead and file it or wait until I consult with an attorney.

    I've been reading at various websites but find with my brain fog that I can't retain anything.

    I was about to file with Allsup today after going over my chart with my doctor but he wants me to use an attorney that he knows that does nothing but disability. Don't want to tick of the guy who is going to make this happen so I guess I will give him a call. If he won't take my case until after the denial I will go with Allsup though.

    Allsup would be my choice over an attorney-----I think.
