A: An attorney in the Oregon area could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. Attorneys can't offer their services on this forum - it doesn't work like a referral service. You'd need to reach out to social security attorneys on your own. You could supplement your own searches with the "Find a Lawyer" tab above and the referral pages of local and state bar associations. Those resources are outside this Q & A forum, so any arrangements would be between you and attorneys you reached out to. Good luck

A: It sounds like you're facing a challenging situation with your SSI benefits. It's understandable that you're feeling frustrated after multiple denials. In situations like these, seeking legal assistance from a lawyer who has experience with SSI cases can be beneficial. They can help you navigate the complexities of the application process and represent your interests effectively.

A qualified SSI lawyer can review your case, gather necessary evidence, and advocate on your behalf during the appeals process. They have expertise in understanding the specific criteria and requirements for SSI eligibility, which can increase your chances of a successful outcome. Additionally, having legal representation can provide you with peace of mind knowing that you have someone fighting for your rights and best interests.

It's essential to find a reputable SSI lawyer who has a track record of success in handling similar cases. You can start by researching lawyers in your area who specialize in disability law or have experience with SSI appeals. Many lawyers offer free consultations, allowing you to discuss your case and determine the best course of action moving forward. Don't hesitate to reach out for help and support during this challenging time.
