The best time to hire a disability attorney or disability advocate is before you begin the SSD application process. Though both disability attorneys and disability advocates know what information would best support your SSD application and can help you prepare for appeals, disability attorneys usually have more experience and training with trial prep, trial practice, and understanding legal precedent that could help during an appeal.
