Hi, I'm not sure if this belongs here or if I should sign up for Angie's List (if that's still considered a valuable service), even for this one situation. But there seem to be no reviews to be found online, so I'm not sure where else to look.

The short of it: when I went on SSDI this past year, I received back payments. But my previous work's insurance company wrote me that I was required to send them a check for all back payments (plus a little!). Not knowing anything about taxes and assuming this was the case (although very disappointed!), I did so.

I just met with a tax preparer, though (not knowing I didn't need to do taxes on SSDI, yeah, I'm a little out of the loop). He said that seemed really strange and that I should contact a lawyer to see about getting at least some of that money back.

As you can probably tell, I know very little about the legal and tax systems. But looking online, most lawyers I see are "injury" or "malpractice" lawyers, although I do see a few financial lawyers, but most say they manage investments. Anyone have an idea as to where I could start? (Or even better, know of a name of someone who might be able to help me with this?).

I apologize that this is a somewhat odd, and possibly out-of-place, question...I can delete the thread if deemed appropriate. But thanks for any help! I could definitely use any money returned.

Ah, thanks very much. Should seem obvious, I guess...but in my head, some things just aren't! Appreciate it.
