Hi,

I'm helping my 22 year old son with his DLA appeal. We are at the tribunal stage but don't have a date yet. Can anyone suggest a good solicitor? We live in the North Lincs/Yorks area.

My son has received the highest rate of DLA and mobility since 5 years of age but the DLA has now been reduced to the lowest rate.

Thanks for your help.

    Dear Dangra,

    Thank you for your post to Helplines. I wonder whether you've been in touch with a Welfare Rights organisation yet?
    I'll list the main organisations we signpost people to. They'd be able to advise about this.

    http://www.turn2us.org.uk/
    http://www.dialuk.info/

    If you particularly want legal advice then these organisations should be able to discuss with you appropriate options, but failing that Which? offer a fixed cost legal advice scheme (see their website).

    If you'd like some of our information on managing arthritis please see
    http://www.arthritiscare.org.uk/PublicationsandResources/Listedbytype/Booklets

    Or please private message us your name and address if you'd like to be sent an information pack.

    I hope that is helpful

    Guy

    Have you tried CAB ? Some of them have dedicated Tribunal officers who know all the pit falls of the tribunals and they are free.

    Hi Dangra, I'm in South Lincs and also appealing a DLA decision, tribunal papers have come through today.

    I have been using the CAB but not sure if they'll be able to come to the tribunal with me as they're swamped atm.

    I believe the Princess Royal/Anne Trust helps carers and provides support for people who care for people who have been refused DLA.

    There's a link, hope it helps. If you do find someone in the Lincs area please shout, expecting my tribunal in Nov/Dec - only a year after I applied! :o and could do with finding someone to help.
