Our Rhode Island Lawyers Can Help You Get The Full Social Security Disability Death Benefits You Deserve​

Widows, widowers and surviving divorced spouses cannot apply for survivor benefits online. They must prove both that they are eligible for the widow or widower’s benefits and that they meet the definition of “disabled” used by the SSA.

At Marasco & Nesselbush, our skilled and experienced attorneys have helped thousands of disabled individuals put together a strong disability benefits application. We are ready to assist you in understanding your eligibility, deciding which disability program(s) to apply for and most importantly, getting the medical evidence you need to win your case and obtain maximum benefits.

Denied? Don’t Give Up!! We will also help you appeal a denial of benefits. We have a track record of success, providing compassionate and effective advocacy during the SSD application and appeals process, and we won’t give up until you receive benefits, or until we have exhausted all possible theories of appeal.

Our attorneys do not charge legal fees unless we can win your case and get you the benefits you need and deserve.

Call or contact us online today to speak with a member of our compassionate and skilled legal team, so we can get started on your SSD case. There is no charge for the consultation and no obligation.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

a father and mother reading a book to their two childrenFor anyone who is really looking for a team of Attorneys that will fight for you every second of the way, this here is the team you want and need in your corner. Attorney Ryan Kelley and his team helped me through such a difficult time after my accident. The stress of thinking what happens next was lifted off my shoulders.

Communication is key for me, and my M&N team was on point with the level of communication they provided. The get-well cards and flowers after surgery were just a special touch that brightened my day. I wasn’t treated like another number or another case, they really made me feel like family. They really care for you and your wellbeing. Words will never express but I will forever be grateful for all they have done for me. Thank you !!!!!”

They work very hard on your behalf and will always return emails and phone calls. More than that, they will regularly reach out to give you updates on your case or to check in and see how you are doing. On a scale of 1 - 10: if I could give you 10+ I would! They have been wonderful!!
