How often Should my attorney stay in contact with me? I havent heard anything in months and this is an important case

I have been trying to get disability for 4 yrs and keep getting denied even though I suffer from paralysis when my potassium drops and it does it every other day... should i obtain another lawyer

In most cases those disability claims take some time so I would not jump to conclusion...the lawyer most likely has no new updates for you at the moment...contact him to find out the status of your case and how long b4 you can expect a decision but to start over with a new lawyer on a disability case is just going to pro-long you getting a decision so be patient and good luck! :)

In my own opinion, if your lawyer is trustworthy and reliable, you should look for him. However, if the situation you are in is an emergency, you may look for one to help you in the meantime.

I would say that this case is not as important to your attorney as it is to you. In my experience an attorney acts as if a case is important if he/she believes they can win. This is especially true of disability cases. Hopefully you are armed with medical experts that will testify that you are disabled and if so, seek another attorney.

I would say that your attorney doesn't believe its a important case, just try to get in touch with your attorney.

These claims are mass-produced. Yours is probably being handled by a non-attorney assistant who let it fall into the machine. But in all states an attorney has a duty to handle your claim with 'diligence'. I would try a certified, return receipt letter to the attorney. The person who responds is probably the one most responsible and whom you should get to know.

Personally I have no first hand experience to relay, but my sister was in a similar situation. There is a group/business called "Health Advocates", they even come to you for interviews & consultations. She was pleased with what they did for her.
