Sometimes it's their income, when their disability benefits have been denied; other times it's their medical care. The 'takers' are usually powerful corporations that are not accustomed to having their decisions to deny challenged. In a disability practice, there's rarely such a thing as a quick and easy resolution. A successful disability attorney must be tenacious and unwilling to give up."
