Hi Karen.  If you are talking about the Quality Branch review, I would not freak out about it.  At either the initial application or reconsideration stage, applications are randomly sent to the Disability Quality Branch for review, without regard to whether the claim has been approved or denied. Being selected does not necessarily mean your application is in trouble.  In theory, the Branch is supposed to review the decision made by the disability examiner and determine whether all rules and evidence were applied and considered appropriately.
As for your attorneys, you need to find out what is going on with them.  If they are not responding to your reasonable requests for information, you need to find a new attorney.  If, on the other hand, you are 'freaking out' and bombarding them with 10 calls per day then, again, you need to take a step back and wait and see what the result of the review is.  Good luck, and please tell your freinds about The Forum.
