Can anyone recommend a qualified ME-aware disability lawyer in Portland, OR area?

This is RWP, PWR's husband (borrowing her account!)

I recevied SSD & SSI back in 1990, using a local lawyer (not ME-focused, but competent). Not sure if he's still in practice, but since I may have to apply now (I've been able to work part-time for much of the intervening period), I would appreciate any referrals.

Oh, hello. So good to see you again.

This Andrew Kantor had a post on reddit from two years ago that sounded good. He's down the page on the fourth row. https://www.kantorlaw.net/meet-our-team/ (I also think I've heard his name mentioned here on PR before so you could do a search maybe.)

I'm not techy but he did that thread I mentioned on reddit however when I try to paste the url only it gives the wording of his intro post so I'm gonna leave it off and give you my search results instead: https://duckduckgo.com/?t=ffab&q=ME/CFs+disability+lawyer&ia=web (It's the ninth result down the page currently.)

Edit #2: Sorry...back again. Here is the search results on PR that came up with his name: https://forums.phoenixrising.me/search/652715/?q=andrew+kantor&o=date

Thanks, Judee! I checked into Kantor, but they only do LTD, not SSDI. I have some local names I'm trying.

Anyone else know of a Portland, OR area SSDI lawyer (initial phase, haven't applied yet or gotten rejected)

Maybe not as helpful but there are ME/CFS lawyers who post on Youtube. Some of them do outside their own areas too. I can't remember the names right now. Sorry.

Also Jonathan Ginsburg has a lot of what to do/what not to do videos there that are really good. He also does outside his state but he's in Atlanta so not sure if he works that far away.
