    Here's a good thread with guides to finding a lawyer.
    You should've sought a lawyer after the first denial to prevent damage to your claim.

    Attorney's work on a contingency, there is no up front cost to you.
    People trying to save attorney fees risk forfeiting their claims, its not worth the risk.
    Depending on how bad you've undermined or damaged your claim, you may have a hard time finding an attorney.

    A Social Security lawyer will cost you nothing. Everyone can afford one. They fee comes out of your back due benefits, if you win. The biggest barrier to hiring a Social Security Disability lawyer is whether or not you have a good case. We do that kind of work here in NC and we have to turn down lots of cases because people who think they should qualify, really would not.
