I've felt comfortable and have built trust with them. They work hard and it shows. I am super thankful to have worked with them.
Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits is far from simple. Not only are you coping with an illness or disability, loss of work and family income, and a changed lifestyle, but you also have to deal with the process of filling for Social Security disability. The application and appeals process can be daunting and stressful, and a missed deadline can mean having to start the process all over again.Contact for a free consultation
Initial applicants, if denied, appeal their claims by filing a Request for Reconsideration with the Social Security Administration. If the claim is again denied at the Reconsideration level, claimants must file a Request for Hearing, also with the Social Security Administration (SSA). SSA will transfer your Request for Hearing to ODAR, the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. If again denied, claimants may appeal to the Appeals Council by filing a Request for Review. If denied yet again, it is possible to file a lawsuit in the federal District Court. There are still other levels of appeal with the (regional) First Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court for rare cases. It is critically important to have an experienced Rhode Island social security disability attorney represent you at all levels of appeal, as the results can be greatly influenced by the strength of the medical evidence presented in your case, by the testimony of medical experts and by a persuasive legal argument made by a seasoned attorney. Our attorneys know how to help you tell your story about the truth of your life and the effect your disability has on your ability to work. Simply stated, having experienced legal representation can make all the difference; the difference between winning and losing your disability case.
If you miss a deadline, you can file a Request for Good Cause with SSA. You must explain why you waited more than 60 days to request an appeal. SSA has set forth certain reasons that they will accept. It helps to be familiar with the federal disability Regulations, Rulings and Case Law to succeed when making such a request.
"For 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 !!!!!"
