A: If you had an attorney who represented you at your hearing then you can ask who they recommend. If you were not represented or your attorney was not local call to a few attorneys in your area that handle SSD cases. If they don’t handle federal work, they know who does that type of work in your area. Although it is a Federal Court case, an attorney has to be admitted to practice in the Federal District Court in your area to handle cases there.
