Of course it happens. But as the general rule, it isn't that easy. I base MY view on knowing three people who work for SS; both of them are sickened by undeserving people who get disability.
They don't much care for clearly deserving people to be denied.
How about, unless you don't want to say where you live, you say which lawyers all but guarantee approval?
