If you live in Rhode Island and are seeking or have been denied Social Security Disability, then it is likely that you are no stranger to frustration. The filing process for SSI or SSDI can be extremely confusing, and procedural differences from state to state only make the process more difficult. You likely have noticed that there is an ocean of information about Social Security Disability online. However, much of this consists of misleading guidance on how easy it is to file on your own or information on an attorney five states away who knows nothing about the procedures that apply to Rhode Island.
The unfortunate truth is that unless you have a lot of free time and experience in Rhode Island legal procedures, then it would probably be unwise for you to attempt to hang the outcome of something as important as your Disability benefits on your own shoulders.
There are many experienced attorneys in Rhode Island who are familiar with the specific area of the law that pertains to Social Security Disability.
