Client Testimonials

I was applying for federal disability retirement and was not getting any cooperation from my employer. I needed legal help to complete my claim. I initially talked to Scott on the phone. He patiently listened to my story and asked questions. There was no rush. He told me what he needed from me and quickly took charge of my case. He drafted letters, filed documents and always met deadlines. I always had access to Scott via phone or text, and he always let me know when he would be unavailable days in advance.

What I mostly appreciated about Scott was when I got frustrated with the case, he assured me things would be alright. He was correct. I received my full retirement plus back pay. I don’t think I could have jumped through all the hoops the Federal Government put in my way without Scott’s assistance.


Excellent communicator, great listener and an absolute professional. He promptly returns calls and correspondence and is very reliable! He guided me through the FERS process when I could no longer do my Federal job. The process is nerve wracking, and very scary. It seemed everyone online was having that same problem. He was very connected with my fears and challenges and gave me advice on how to deal with my Agency, my supervisors, Human Resources, as well as my doctors. In the end, I got approved!!!  A breath of fresh air finding honest and direct people who are experts. This guy is the real deal. His services are impeccable and I’m a satisfied customer!!!


Scott assisted me with my FERS case on two occasions. First in 2012, and then again in 2016. Scott was both professional and kind. From the start, he makes you feel at ease with your situation. Scott was able to resolve both of my FERS issues in a timely and professional manner. I would not only recommend his services to friends and family but I would also happily use his services again if needed.


I truly enjoyed working with Scott Santarelli on my FERS Disability! I knew right from the start that Scott would assist me every step of the way.  He was ALWAYS available via email or phone to answer any or all of my questions. He made this process go extremely smoothly and broke everything down in parts so it didn't seem overwhelming. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Scott on FERS Disability. I'm truly grateful for my outcome and everything he did for me.


Your services were much needed navigating an arcane system. With your help, my case was approved on the first try. You made the process a lot more manageable due to your expertise. The fact you accommodated me and my financial situation with a payment plan allowed me to maintain some sanity through this stressful situation. Thanks for being very professional and approachable during the process.


Scott helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life.  I made the decision to file for FERS Disability, and it terrified me on many levels.  I called Scott, and though my fears were still there, I knew he would handle my journey in the best possible way.  He explained my options, and I decided to choose the whole package.  I was afraid I would not be able to afford it.  When he told me the price, I could not believe that he could assist me up this mountain for such a reasonable price.  Scott did everything he said he would, and more.  He helped me with every single step.  He treated me with respect, politeness, care, and a confidence that always reassured me.  When I was awarded my full disability, I gave all the credit to Scott.  I followed his lead and trusted him.  He is truly the best!


Mr. Santarelli, I just want to show my gratitude by saying thank you for doing a wonderful job on my case. Could not have gotten my retirement disability case approved on the first try without your loyalty and hard work – thank you again.


Scott Santarelli was a real pleasure to work with.  He was thorough, knowledgeable, personable, and he kept me informed throughout the entire process, and made sure my needs were addressed all along the way.  While I can say that nobody wants to go through this process, it was great having Scott in my corner!  I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who needs to apply for FERS Disability.  I truly cannot say enough good things about him.


I had to apply for disability due to my bilateral hearing loss, which was causing me a great deal of distress, resulting in anxiety and depressive symptoms. Having Scott Santarelli assist me with all of my questions, the paperwork, and continuously keeping in contact with my place of employment, supervisors, medical personnel (including my primary medical physician, audiologist, and psychiatrist) was a tremendous relief.  Even though I have never personally met Scott, I felt comfortable with him guiding me throughout the whole disability process. Scott, I appreciate everything you have done for me. You are truly a gem. Thank you!


Scott is the most professional and knowledgeable person I know when it comes to FERS Disability Retirement.  He is very reliable and explains things so that anyone can understand them.  The FERS Disability Retirement system is a rat maze, which not even my union representative could explain to me.  Scott is the only person I would rely on to guide me through this process.  He is a hard worker and worked relentlessly on my case.  If he doesn’t know the answer to your question, he finds out and gets the answers you need in a timely manner.  He is truly the professional that you want working for you.
