Marc is an excellent attorney – he puts you at ease with the whole process of obtaining SSI benefits and is a great motivator through what is a very arduous and energy-sapping process for anyone that has to go through it. He also doesn’t give up at the first level of appeal and will do whatever is necessary to obtain benefits. During my initial consultation, he took about two hours to answer every single of my questions free of charge while treating me with respect and displaying an in-depth knowledge of SSI regulations as they apply to my case. Because of his extensive experience with disability judges, he knows their peculiarities and can tell you exactly what to expect during a hearing in front of a particular judge as well as clearly assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case. He is also always ready to answer any lingering questions by phone if the need arises. Above all else, I can’t stress enough the confidence he instills in you that you will be successful in obtaining benefits. I recommend him highly.
I had been battling years for my benefits and was on the edge of despair. I was referred to Mr. Kalagian. He kept me up to date on what was going, and when we left court I had my benefits. A great weight was lifted and I am very thankful to Mr. Kalagian for that.
Mr. Kalagian worked very hard for us when other attorneys wouldn't even look at our case. He is very sensitive to client's disabilities and illnesses.
I have gone through 3 attorneys, before finding Mr. Kalagian, & I have no regrets. He is extremely knowledgeable, in the Social Security field.
