If attorneys were gods, they would work themselves out of business; but attorneys are not gods; therefore, there is much that an attorney can do. Such a syllogism may be rather self-evident. Attorneys are not gods; neither are they miracle workers. Not every issue can be handled by, or resolved through, an attorney.
Sometimes, the lay person can do the work him/herself without an attorney. At other times, the input of an attorney, however minimal, can be the difference between success or failure.
Here are some of the things a Federal Disability Attorney can do in a Federal Disability Retirement case: Focus and sharpen a case; cut out the irrelevancies; cite and apply the law; make the legal arguments which are current and applicable; streamline a case and make it clear and pointed; rebut an opponent’s argument by pointing out logical inconsistencies and mistaken applications of the law; provide a strategy and plan; give an objective account of one’s case.
There are many other aspects of any given case that a Federal Disability Retirement Attorney can be helpful with, but these generalities can provide you with a notion of what a good and effective attorney can do.
