So...Everyone Hates Fee Petitions
Fee petitions aren't that bad! Allow Charles Pirro, Esq., who has been practicing Social Security Disability Law for over 40 years, to show you why you shouldn't shy away from the fee petition process. Given the current climate of increased denial rates, and the projected increase of Continuing Disability Review cases, you need to know how you can represent individuals and still get paid (what you're worth) for your work. This session is appropriate for all experience levels. This NADRguide has been approved for 1 hour of ADR continuing education credit.
