New List Of Sanctioned Attorney And Non-Attorney Representatives

     The Social Security Administration has posted an updated list of attorney and non-attorney representatives who have been barred from representing claimants before the agency due to misconduct. It's a cumulative list that goes back to the late 1980s. Here are the names added in the last year. The date listed is the date the person was sanctioned.
  • Calder, Jarrett Skipper,  South Carolina, Attorney, 7/25/19
  • Hoegh, Thomas,  California, Attorney, 2/18/20
  • Isayan, Andranik California, Non-attorney, 8/2/19
  • Krout, Jr., Dale E., Florida Attorney, 6/10/19
  • Liles, Sean, Michigan, Attorney, 5/20/19
  • Melkonian, Lousine, California, Non-attorney, 7/1/19
  • Patrick, Megan Mariah, Misissippi, Attorney, 12/9/19
  • Pogosian, Ani, California, Non-attorney, 9/4/19
  • Smith Grayson,Christy, Kentucky, Attorney 12/9/19
     Almost half the list comes from the state of California. The three non-attorneys from California were all sanctioned around the same time and all have surnames of Armenian origin. I don't know what the story is there. I'm guessing it was a group thing.

Curious how many of the attorney names on the list are from SSA investigations or if most of them are cases where SSA just piggy backed on the work/decision making of the state bar association/regulatory agency.
