Marc went above and beyond with my case. My previous attorney did nothing for 4 years. I transfered my case to Marc and he was amazing with court hearings, follow up and being in constant contact with me and social security office. We won our case with full benefits.

Marc was a pleasure to work with. Following my sister's passing, Social Security was so difficult to work with. Hiring Marc made a very difficult time so much more peaceful. He won a favorable result and having Marc working on my family's behalf gave us the time to grieve. I highly recommend Marc and his team.

I hired Marc Kalagian for my Social Security case. He was prepared for my hearing, very familiar with my unique job, its requirements and my inability to no longer perform it. During the hearing he brought up circumstances that even impressed the judge. He won my case! I would not have been able to do this without him.

I feel very fortunate to have hired Marc to represent me. In my situation, my case was approved and unfortunately pulled back for further review. Marc was there to answer any questions I had and always kept me updated. It was very reassuring to know that I had such an experienced and professional lawyer durinf this difficult and lengthy process. My case was finally approved. I would recommend Marc to anyone who needs a great attorney.

Mr. Kalagian did all he needed to do to help us win our case. What stood out about him was the excellent way he was able to relate to my disabled daughter, the subject of the case with social security. He is knowledgeable and responsible and kind.

My experience with Mr. Kalagian was excellent. My disability case was complicated with several “legalities” including Personal injury and Workers Compensation. Mr. Kalagian guided me through every step answering all my questions in a timely manner. Mr. Kalagian’s staff were also very prompt and reliable.

I WAS DENIED TWICE BY THE SSA AND WAS REFERRED TO MR. KALAGIAN IN 2014 TO ASSIST WITH MY 2ND APPEAL. I WAS IMMEDIATELY AT EASE WITH MR. KALAGIAN, AS THERE WAS NO STRESS OR CONFUSION ABOUT WHAT WOULD TRANSPIRE GOING FORWARD. MR. KALAGIAN SPENT OVER 2 HOURS WITH ME ON OUR FIRST VISIT. IMMEDIATELY THEREAFTER, I WAS NOTIFIED EACH AND EVERY SINGLE TIME HE WAS REQUESTING MEDICAL DOCUMENTS OR UPDATING MY CASE FILE. WE DID NOT NEED TO SPEAK ON THESE MATTERS AS THE MANNER IN WHICH HE CONDUCTED HIMSELF AS A PERSON, A LAWYER, AND AN ADVOCATE HAD MY MIND AT EASE; TOTAL TRUST, AND NEVER ONCE DID I DOUBT MY DECISION TO CHOOSE HIM TO REPRESENT ME. MR. KALAGIAN BUILT MY CASE BY CONTINUALLY REQUESTING UPDATED REPORTS AND REQUESTS FOR FORMS TO BE COMPLETED BY MY PHYSICIANS. NEVER ONCE DID HE EXPRESS ANY FRUSTRATION OR NEGATIVE COMMENTS ABOUT THE PROCESS. HE REMAINED UPBEAT, POSITIVE, AND ALWAYS ENCOURAGING. ON OUR SECOND FACT-TO-FACE, IN 2016, WHICH WAS PRIOR TO MY HEARING, HE WAS CLEAR AS TO MY ROLE IN THE HEARING AND HIS SPIRIT CALMED ANY CONCERNS I MAY HAVE HAD ABOUT MY HEARING. WHEN I LEFT THAT MEETING, I WAS AT PEACE. I FELT THAT I WAS IN THE BEST LEGAL HANDS POSSIBLE TO ASSIST WITH MY APPEAL. ON THE DAY OF MY HEARING, MR. KALAGIAN WAS IN GREAT SPIRITS AND MADE ME FEEL RELAXED AND ANXIETY FREE. (THIS IN AND OF ITSELF WAS A GREAT FEAT TO ACCOMPLISH.) DURING THE HEARING, MR. KALAGIAN WAS THE CONSUMATE LEGAL PROFESSIONAL. THERE WERE NO SURPRISES AND HIS DEMEANOR KEPT ME FOCUSED AND ON POINT. HIS COMMUNCIATION WAS CLEAR, CONCISE, AND ALWAYS POSITIVE. SUFFICE TO SAY I WON MY APPEAL THANKS TO THE ASSISTANCE AND REPRESENTATION OF MR. KALAGIAN. HE PROMISED NOTHING AND DELIVERED EVERYTHING!!! NO MISLEADING COMMUNICATION WAS UTTERED. YOU DON'T NEED TO CONSTANTLY MEET WITH HIM TO KNOW THAT HE IS CONSTANTLY WORKING ON YOUR BEHALF. YOU DON'T NEED TO REMIND HIM OF WHO YOU ARE. HE IS ON TOP OF YOUR CASE FROM DAY ONE. THIS IS THE KIND OF ATTORNEY YOU WANT REPRESENTING YOU IN AN SSA APPEAL HEARING; HONEST, FORTHRIGHT, AND ETHICAL. I KNOW THAT WITHOUT THE SERVICES OF MR. KALAGIAN I WOULD NOT HAVE HAVE BEEN GRANTED A FAVORABLE DECISION, NOT BECAUSE HE IS AN ATTORNEY, THAT DOES HELP, BUT BECAUSE HE TRULY DOES CARE AND IT SHOWS BY HIS ACTIONS, ACTIONS IN AND OUT OF THE HEARING. I FELT THAT THE JUDGE ALSO RESPECTED MR. KALAGIAN AS AN ATTORNEY AND MYSELF BY ASSOCIATION. THIS, AS MR. KALAGIAN STAYED ON POINT AND DIDN'T BELABOR THE ISSUES. HE ADDRESSED WHAT NEEDED TO BE STATED AND THEN MOVED ON. HE KEPT ME ON MY TOES WITH HIS QUESTIONS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, KEPT ME CALM. IF I A CIRCUMSTANCE ARISES WITH RESPECT TO SOMEONE I KNOW WHO HAD NEED OF AN ATTORNEY FOR AN SSA APPEAL, I WOULD RECOMMEND AND REFER ONLY ONE ATTORNEY, MR. KALAGIAN. I RESPECT HIM AND THE WORK THAT HE DOES FOR THE GREATER GOOD OF INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES WHO ARE UNABLE TO ENGAGE IN SUBSTANTIAL GAINFUL ACTIVITY.
MR. KALAGIAN IS THE ATTORNEY THAT YOU WANT, I CAN GUARANTEE IT.
ALL THE BEST TO ALL FUTURE CLIENTS OF MR. KALAGIAN.

Marc did everything a client deserves and won my case which had been going on for years. He was nice,efficient,straight forward. I wish the office had given me more time to collect my medical records. I have a bad memory and forgot to call for them. Otherwise, I would recommend Marc, and I will.

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.
