    A youtube video of a Florida based lawyer who specialises in ME/CFS insurance cases.

    Sends people for Neuropsychological testing to prove cognitive impairment and also for CPET testing.

    May be of interest to anyone in Florida

    Thank you @John Mac. This is helpful advice for other lawyers, as well as pwME.

    I would imagine most disability lawyers keep up on how to prove their ME clients' cases. But we can never be sure about that. Some time ago, I learned of one disability lawyer fighting these cases who was not very well acquainted with ME or Fibromyalgia, despite working for clients with these diseases.

    I think it's a good idea to send some info to law firms about ME. Especially summaries like the MEAction science round up, and the video included here.

    Don't assume the lawyers are up to speed on things - even those advertising themselves as specialists in the area

    @Sbag, your comments about don't assume those who advertise they are experts actually are, reminded me of an experience I had. Having read the website of a respected expert, I asked about some particular assistance, noted on the website.
    What I was interested in was dismissed as not relevant anymore. An out of date website can be misleading. At the very least, professionals should update their websites.

    I think they just put anything to get your business! I would be dubious about the claims of legal expertise as well if I didn’t know that they must have qualifications :)
