FIBROMYALGIA PATIENT EDUCATION AND SUPPORT ORGANIZATION LAUNCHES TWO LEGAL COLUMNS ON ITS WEBSITE

The Fibromyalgia Patient Education and Support organization announces two legal columns are now available on its website at no charge to its community members as well as the public. The new columns are written by Edward M. Farmer, a decorated U.S. Army veteran and attorney who specializes in assisting veterans with VA disability appeals and benefits issues, and Austin J. McGreal, an attorney practicing in the area of Social Security disability law.

VERNON HILLS, ILLINOIS – September 21, 2017 – Necie Edwards, founder and CEO of the Fibromyalgia Patient Education and Support Organization (FPESO), is pleased to introduce two legal columns on the nonprofit’s website under the new “Legal Corner” tab,” expanding the information the nonprofit offers as a service to its community members as well as the public.  The columns are written by Edward M. Farmer, Esq., of The Law Office of Edward M. Farmer, and Austin J. McGreal, Esq., of The Law Offices of Austin McGreal, both based in Chicago, Illinois. 

A decorated and service-disabled U.S. Army veteran, Farmer specializes in veteran affairs disability benefits, special VA benefits issues, military discharges, and injury or death caused by the VA. His firm’s practice also includes elder law and Medicaid applications. 

McGreal, who practices exclusively in the area of Social Security disability law in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin, represents people at any stage of the Social Security Disability process, from initial application to an appeal.

Farmer’s first two columns on FPESO’s “Legal Corner” are “Veterans and Medical Cannabis:  Top Tips for Obtaining your Illinois Medical Cannabis Card” and “Five Things Veterans Should Know About Their VA Fibromyalgia Claims.”  “Because many veterans suffer from fibromyalgia, there is a need to discuss the interaction between fibromyalgia and the veteran community,” he says.  “Future articles will focus on answering common questions about the VA claims process in general and touch upon fibromyalgia claims, as well.” 

McGreal’s initial “Legal Corner” topic is “Fibromyalgia and Social Security Disability Claims.”  “I am pleased to offer my column as a service of the FPESO website as the Social Security Disability process today is more complex and daunting than it has ever been,” he says.  “It has also become much more difficult to obtain benefits than it was in the past, and approval rates are lower than ever.  By contributing my expertise, I hope to help guide individuals in need of assistance in navigating this challenging process.” 

The “Legal Corner” columns can be accessed at: https://www.fibromyalgiapatienteducation.info/category/legal/

“At Fibromyalgia Patient Education and Support, we strive to provide a variety of programs, classes, workshops, and other informational resources that support individuals suffering with fibromyalgia and other chronic pain issues,” says Edwards.  “The ‘Legal Corner’ columns make a valuable addition to our online services, which we make available at no charge.  I am honored and grateful to Mr. Farmer and Mr. McGreal for contributing their expertise.”
