"(h)e ... could not work on the disability until this is completed ... " is what the work comp attorney has advised you.  Have you hired the work comp attorney to do the Social Security Disability case?  Because the topic has come up, you want to make sure that you have not signed anything that would put you in the position of having two attorneys on your Social Security Disability case. It is perfectly fine to have an attorney for work comp and another for Social Security Disability.  There is no requirement that the Work Comp claim be completed before the claim with SSA is filed for disability.  As a matter of courtesy, advise the work comp attorney of your intentions so that the two claims can be coordinated between the two attorneys.
