30 something, recent preliminary Asperger's diagnosis. Destitute. Can a lawyer help with SSI, employabilty, life planning etc?
Seattle, WA |
At 36, at Psychiatrist endorsed that I probably have Asperger's Syndrome. Informal tests confirm this (AQ over 35 of 50) (Aspie quiz over 140/200). Suddenly much of my personal difficulties, social impairments and special talents (IQ over 140) have snapped into focus. I have long had trouble with employment, attendance, peers, and so forth, I also have a recent misdemeanor cybercrime conviction that has turned my world upside-down. I understand there may be tools and state or nonprofit programs to assist me, but I have no resources or ideas about how to proceed. Please help.
I did a search and found a couple lawyers to ask. Thanks. Note: It would be helpful if there were a disability checkbox in the Avvo 'find a lawyer' tab. it is there as Social Security though.
Can anyone suggest a better way for me to pinpoint an attorney who has SSI experience on behalf of persons on the Autism spectrum?
