I now how a phone appointment for the appeal, do I need a lawyer?
A: Probably not. Although it would be nice to have one, the cost relative to the amount at issue will probably be prohibitive. But I have met with people like you to discuss the issues that are likely to come up–so that you don’t get tripped up by procedural issues and you know what is likely to happen at the hearing. It usually lasts about an hour and prior clients have said that it’s well worth it.
