Do I Need an Advocate?
An advocate can help you in all stages of the process; however, an advocate will greatly increase your chances for success once you have to present your case in front of an Administrative Law Judge and any other appeals after the hearing.
So, while you don’t always need an advocate at the beginning of the process, it is a good idea to have one at the start and all the way through.
