I signed up and was approved first time, which I have been told is rare, as I was 44 at the time of my TBI(work related).

So I had a WC attorney, and a PI also, and they worked together.
Actually, about 1/3 of SSDI claimants are approved at the first stage. Not every type of disability has a Listing, and some Listings are rarely approved before an ALJ hearing. You must have had enough medical evidence to prove you meet a Listing, (which can be complicated and very particular).
