Can anyone recommend a good disability lawyer either in Fremont County, Colorado Springs, or Pueblo?

You need to give us a bit more information before we can try to answer your question. Feel free to DM me if you prefer. I am an advocate for disabled Coloradans on the Western Slope and may be able to point you in the right direction.

Sorry about that, we need a lawyer to assist with an ssdi case for my wife. She has been unable to walk or stand on her own for about two years and has not been able to work in a year and a half. She can't walk unassisted at all and is in a wheelchair if she has to go more than about 20 yds. Doctors found MS lesions in her back but due to other medical issues we are unable to do further testing at this time. Social Security found that she had significant impairment but turned us down based on lack of vocational information.

Social Security ALWAYS turns you down the first time. You can crawl into their offices in the middle of your final death throes, and they'll tell you that you don't have the correct paperwork. Since SSDI is a federal program which is not exclusive to Colorado and since most people prefer to keep certain private things private, I won't reply to you in this thread specifically. I'll send you a DM either today or tomorrow, and we can take it from there (or not). BTW, my work with the disabled is my way of paying back all those who helped me when my own disability hit. I am not a pro, but I have been through many of the circles of hell that this country imposes upon its disabled citizens. I can point out some pro's for you if you wish, and I can get you in touch with some very helpful agencies in Colorado and elsewhere. Hang in there. - Rambler

Thank you, I certainly appreciate any information. We knew there was a good chance of losing the first round because like you stated just about everyone is denied at first unless there is just something terminal that they can't argue.
