What our clients say.
I can’t say enough Michael…..you and Seth ROCK…what a team! If you recall, our first SSDI hearing with another law firm was declined and on the second hearing they withdrew from the case at the 11th hour, leaving us high and dry. Seth spent more time with us both live and via phone than the “other” firm did in almost 2 years’ time. Having SSDI has taken some of the burden off me financially, but more importantly has been emotionally helpful in my husband’s recovery.
“After I injured myself at work, Mike helped me navigate what would have otherwise been a very confusing processes to get my worker’s compensation benefits and ultimately negotiate a settlement I was very pleased with. Along the way, he always took time to explain the process to me and made sure to answer all of my questions. Not only is Michael a great attorney, I am happy to call him a friend as well.”
“When I was injured at work, the Insurance company didn’t want to pay my benefits. Attorney Akashian fought hard for me and we ended up winning my Accidental Disability Retirement case and getting a lump sum settlement for my worker’s compensation benefits.”
I highly recommend Michael Akashian. In my opinion he is one of the best, if not the best attorney in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Michael represented me in two matters, one for Workers Compensation, the other for Social Security Disability Insurance. My cases were challenging, but he prevailed on both matters.
