Very successful dispute with the VA for Sinusitis and Allergic Rhinitis
My attorney, Selina, was like a surgeon's scalpel in her precise methods of preparation, fact finding and structuring a dispute to my VA claim decision. I initially went through the DAV for a claim related to burn barrel exposure. The VA summarily denied service connection for sinusitis and denied disability for allergic rhinitis. It was clear that I needed professional legal help to navigate the VA's juggernaut of process machinations and incongruity of policy adherence. I chose Marc Whitehead and Associates primarily because of the professional nature of the administration team and thoroughness of sifting through the facts during our mutual interview process. My primary contact was Yilian for all matters administrative. She was ALWAYS prompt, professional and courteous whenever we corresponded. Never once did I feel like I didn't know what was going on. They have a very established playbook at Marc Whitehead and it was executed with polished precision. The VA capitulated to their negative responses and came back with a highly favorable award for both sinusitis and allergic rhinitis. Further, my legal team was most impressive even after the VA made their decision on my dispute. In fact, the VA made a mistake with the Effective Date on my award. But Selina, my attorney, was eager to right this slight from the VA and applied for a Higher-Level Review. I just can't say enough good things about Selina and Yilian. If you need legal assistance with your VA claim, get your facts together, organize your paperwork, and give the professionals at Marc Whitehead and Associates a call.

Notice of decision : fully favorable
I was in full panic mode & overwhelmed by the SSDI application & appeals process but they handled all the paperwork & communication & logistics for me. I think I emailed the office at minimum once a week for 5 months. & I was answered in a timely, respectful & helpful manner each time.

Lifeline when Disabled
I started my disability filing journey alone and in intense pain when I filed myself in 2021 as a last resort. Things got worse after and in 2022 I needed a cervical spine fusion surgery to prevent me from losing bodily functions. The pain was still there after the fusion and it got worse over time. I amended my disability filing but was denied. I had no idea what I was doing on my disability filings though and because of pain meds, chronic pain, and depression I was having a hard time getting anything done. I sought the help of a disability attorney and Marc Whitehead and Associates took my case. They helped me appeal, file paperwork, get doctor records, and went to trail with me to get approved for disability in late 2023. They have a great team of case workers and attorneys that kept me up to date on everything in the process. During the trail they ensured I had the right medical records as evidence and forms were filled out correctly with the right legal terminology. If you have a disabling condition that is getting worse you need to do two things for success. 1. Go to your doctors for medical help (with second opinions) 2. Contact Marc Whitehead and Associates so you can do things right

Thank for being the go to person that i needed to get the job done.

A+ service from the 1st call
I contacted Marc Whitehead for my initial SSDI claim as I wanted to do it right the 1st time. Kimberly Warren and Barbara Milan reached out to me initially and made the process smooth. After 2 denials we went to the ALJ level and I worked with Erica Wilson who was GREAT, I doubt I would have been able to do 1/2 of the work she helped me with. I am very pleased with the work they did for my eventual approval!

VA Denials
I want to take the time to thank Marc Whitehead & Associates, particularly my case manager, Yilian Martinez for the outstanding results concerning my VA case. After several years and two denials from the VA concerning my back pain, Marc Whitehead & Associates was able to get me a favorable results. Yilian was very helpful and kept me appraised of the process all the way. She ensured all the paperwork was completed, submitted in a timely manner and was genuinely concern with my case.. The Marc Whitehead team is one that I would recommend to any and all veterans having issues with VA case denials. Simply put, they get results!

Call them! Don’t give up or be disheartened!
Do not give up! If you are disabled and it seems like an uphill battle, bring in this team to do the heavy lifting and fight, because it works! I was denied twice and had to appeal to go before the judge, this team did everything and we won! Big thank you to: Mr. Anthony Vessel my attorney Crystal Perez who kept communications smooth Lupe Acevedo for records management Steven Riveria my case manager All star team. Due to my military history and burn pit exposure, I am a mess. I earned my disability through decades of taxes, and if you did also, you earned this as well, just don’t give up and hire a team from Marc Whitehead & Associates!

Social Security & Disability
As a new client, Crystal (Social Security Disability Paralegal) provided first-rate service concerning the initial application and reconsideration stages, including the formal court hearing process with the Administrative Law Judge. As such, I knew Crystal was managing my case with extreme care and professionalism. Before the hearing, I met with Anthony (Attorney of Record), and we reviewed what to expect during the court proceedings, which was very helpful. I want to thank Crystal and Anthony for assisting me during this process, and without a doubt, I highly recommend Marc Whitehead & Associates for all of your legal needs. Regards, Dwight Lawrence
