About This Firm

About This Firm
Nationwide Veterans Disability Attorneys "A Few Good Men" (and women) who will not give up

The courtroom drama "A Few Good Men" was based on an actual case Don Marcari handled as a young Navy judge advocate general (JAG) trial team attorney in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The story illustrates the lengths to which he, attorney David Russotto and the entire veterans legal team at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, P.C. will go to protect their client's interest and obtain the justice they deserve.

Compassion and persistence add up to real solutions for disabled vets and their families

Disabled veterans and surviving family members of deceased veterans who have been denied disability benefits need a lawyer they can trust - one who is stern and persistent when dealing with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and who also cares deeply for their clients.

At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, P.C. clients receive both the care and attention they need. We are a team of veterans ourselves, accredited to represent you anywhere within the United States, and have 69 years of combined military experience.

Credentials and resources to deliver peace of mind

We have experience dealing directly with the VA's regional offices around the country, the Board of Veterans Appeals and the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (Veterans Court). When necessary, we pursue appeals all the way to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals.

As a disabled veteran trying to navigate the complexities of the Veterans Administrations regulations, I turned to the law firm pf Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban. They helped me understand what I needed to do and prepared and presented to the VA an excellent presentation of my case. I recommend them for your legal needs.

The legal aide works above and beyond at her duties in my opinion but it would be nice to talk with the case worker or and attorney at least one time one on one so that you get the feeling of a more personal relationship with all the people that are handling your case.

I used this firm and they were there in my time of need!!! Jessica Lowe was on my case and she has a heart of gold and was there when I had no one to turn to. I will for sure go to her again

Great law firm. Excellent service, great communication and response time. Kristen Swinson and Attorney Ryan Spencer are the ultimate professionals. I could not have chosen a better law firm to represent me in my claim for benefits.

If you are a vet with a claim and getting the 'run-a-round" by the VA, call these guys; they may help keep you from going insane...

Excellent service. We chose Mr. Balaban because he was honest, took time to explain the facts to us, and available when we had any questions. His staff was helpful and polite. We appreciated the communication that occurred throughout our experience.

After initial meeting w/ firm rep 3/14, never heard from appointed rep. Only communication with me was the paralegal. I sent emails to Negotiator (5/14) and Attorney (6/14) w/concerns of continual health issues, w/no response.Jul 2nd rcvd ltr that demand pkg was sent to insurance company on my behalf and could take 60 days for response. I waited past 60 days, heard nothing. 5 Sep emailed again to all.I'm told it's too late to seek further treat cause it wouldn't look good and offer is on table
