Unpaid lawyers helping Conn’s disabled victims recover benefits

Well, it’s about time the feds caught up with lawyer Eric Conn, you say. I agree.
But a much larger saga has been playing out in recent months to the detriment of hundreds of disabled Eastern Kentuckians, all former clients of Conn. In May 2015, approximately 1,500 of these former clients received notices from the Social Security Administration that they would need to appear for a hearing before an administrative law judge to “redetermine” whether they were truly eligible for the benefits they received years ago when they were represented by Conn.
