PIP appeal support
I like some advice, please. I try to keep it short. My son's girlfriend has applied for pip was rejected due to a bad and incorrect telephone assessment, at the assessment my son who is also her carer, was present and witnessed the call but did not speak for her, as she was told he was not allowed, the assessor did not record her statements correctly and miss reported her medical conditions and difficulties.my son witnessed these blatant lies, they did a mandatory reconsideration but it was not successful. she now intends to appeal.
They live near Swansea, I have used a solicitor for one of my appeals many years ago using legal aid but that firm closed last year as they could not recruit solicitors and get more funding sadly.
I know got 2 questions, please.
Does anybody know a firm of solicitors/advice centre who can help at least prepare an appeal?
Can my son be a witness to the fact that the assessor lied, as the DWP already admitted he was present and listening at the assessment?
Any other help would be appreciated and it would be nice to give some hope as she is currently in hospital recovering from a tumour operation
