Handling All Types Of Unemployment Claims

Losing your job, whether you were fired, quit or were let go, can be a frustrating and emotional experience. Losing your source of income can make it difficult to pay the bills and provide for yourself or your family.

Even if you were fired or quit your job, you still may be eligible for unemployment benefits to help you between jobs. At Comerford & Saccoccio, we help clients who have been denied unemployment benefits. We assist clients in Rhode Island and Massachusetts with unemployment appeals, providing personal and hands-on legal services.

If your unemployment benefits have been denied, contact the Rhode Island unemployment claims lawyers at our firm. In a free initial consultation, we will listen to your story and provide you with guidance and advice regarding your claim.
