Where can I find an attorney to assist me in applying for OPERS disability benefits?

I have worked in a county agency for 20+ years. I have cancer and have been on sick leave for 9 months. Now additional surgery is necessary and I need to apply for disability but I need assistance regarding eligibility, ability to work part-time, how the wording should be completed on the forms, etc. I have already had an appointmentwith OPERS and have the forms as does my oncologist. I would be glad to pay for a consult with a disability law attorney knowledgeable about OPERS? In Franklin County, OH

What you want is a referral to an attorney knowledgeable in the area of law that you need.  I would contact your local county Bar association.  They often have referral services.  They should be able to give you a list of attorneys that you can call.  Feel free to call as many as you need to interview them and ask for references from clients.  You can also do so from the State Bar Association.  Do not feel squeamish about asking about fees, success rate, etc. Ask as many questions as you need and seek what ever opinions from clients to feel comfortable.  Good luck to you with your treatment and your claim.
