I believe there is no better way to advocate for my clients than to sit down with each of them from the initial meeting to the end of our representation and to personally return calls about important matters. When you seek my representation, rest assured that you will meet with me.

I am proud to represent individuals in Ohio who need the assistance of a skilled, experienced, and responsive attorney. Not only do I have years of experience representing disabled individuals, but I have also been involved in multiple bench trials and a jury trial. These experiences add value to what you might not always get from other disability lawyers.

Poor Service From Scott
Hi, I would absolutely not recommend Scott as a disability attorney to anyone. We have been working with him since January of 2021 and he was highly recommended for his services. He was absolutely awful!! We couldn't get him to respond to our emails for weeks, sometimes a month at a time and when he did he just apologized saying he had nothing to share. What? What professional doesn't respond back promptly to the customer he is serving to let them know where they are and what's going on, even if there's not much happening. We finally decided to fire him in October 2023 and have yet to receive our medical file back or even get an email respond to the four emails I've sent since October. Unbelievable! Do not use him if you want prompt action taken on your claim and even his assistant Michelle couldn't respond to us on his behalf. I'm not sure how he stays in business with this kind of poor service. We will find an attorney that actually wants to work and make money for us and for themselves. Extremely Disappointed. Chris

He never followed thru
Though I had a written contract in hand for Kolligian to handle my disability case he dodged emails and phone calls for 10 months before he called me and confessed like a child that he had simply never gotten around to doing any work at all on my case. He admitted Covid was not a factor and that he could not offer a defense (that in itself doesn’t say much about an attorney). I hired a new attorney and my disability was awarded without contention, but my backpay was 10 months short because I was given a small contractual bonus that changed my disability date. The effective date is determined by the last time a person is paid by their company and Kolligian delayed my case so long that it resulted in my receiving over $15,000 less in backpay. This comment won’t be removed, evidence that it is absolutely factual.

Response from Scott Kolligian October 7, 2022
Hi Jill, I am happy to hear that your disability claim was awarded. One of the hardest things about this job is that not all attorney/client relationships work out. While an online review is not an appropriate place to discuss the facts of your claim, I think we can both admit that we were probably not the best fit for each other. I'm just glad you found someone to help you complete the process. I'm glad they were able to help. I wish you nothing but the best in the future. - Scott Kolligian
