Eric C. Conn docuseries brings hope to clients

PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - Hundreds of former clients of Eric C. Conn are still waiting for answers, seven years after the high-profile social security scandal changed their lives.

With the docuseries “The Big Conn,” which dropped Friday on Apple TV+, they hope to see those answers coming soon.

A meeting held Monday in Floyd County brought former clients to watch clips from the series before hearing an update from attorney Ned Pilersdorf, who represents them in cases against the Social Security Administration . . .

AppalReD Legal Aid representative Evan Smith spoke to those in attendance as well, making sure everyone has representation in their case.

“You should not go through this alone,” he said.

Pilersdorf said the help of volunteer lawyers, AppalReD, the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives, and Wilmer Hale cannot be overstated, since they have made it possible to look out for everyone impacted.

“I don’t know what we would have done without AppalRed. They didn’t even have to get involved,” said Pilersdorf.
