« Make a Resolution to Appeal your Denied Disability Claim | Main | Disability Blog Roundup - Twelfth Night Edition »

This is so unfortunately true! It seems to me that the judges feel pressured to deny more in the current political/economic environment. They are worried that they will be called upon to justify their decisions. It requires us (lawyers) to make sure that the cases are well documented with medical records and in many cases, push our clients to obtain the medical treatment they need so that we may develop an adequate record.

I have been faring ok here. I have a lot of rural workers, mill workers, and people that have very little education. Its not unusual for me to have a 9th or 10th grade education, and one job as a chicken cutter for 15 years.
