PIP appeal advice needed

edited September 2017 in PIP, DLA and AA
I'm trying to appeal re PIP assessment (zero points after Higher Mobility + Middle on PIP - astonishing recovery!) but am having problems re getting appeal advice.
I have found a local legal advice centre but they are very very busy and my advisor, after one visit, says she doesn't have the time to see me again and isn't answering calls or responding to emails.
I'm v scared that this will wreck my appeal chances - has anyone had any luck with finding - free - advice +, if so, how will it look if I change?

Huge thanks - I'm new to this so not sure what should/could ask!

    HI,  I used the above video's when appealing my pip asessment,  Same as you i had the enhanced mobility rate but when assessed for PIP lost it completely.  Glad to say today I had my tribunal appeal and I won my case so back on enhanced rate mobility - please dont give up i know it very confusing and i went through hell worrying but watch the above videos, they were a great help to me.  Good luck
