Rod Melkonoff, Attorney at Law

Social Security Claims & Appeals

Rod Melkonoff is a Northern California transplant who has now spent more years in Arizona than in his home state. He graduated from the University of California and Golden Gate University School of Law. He was admitted to practice in California in 1975 and Arizona in 1978. He has been with the firm since 1981 and has acted as the managing partner since 1984.

Rod has had over 40 years of experience with Social Security matters and is uniquely capable of addressing disability, retirement, and survivors’ issues with equal competence, having spent nearly 10 years with the Social Security Administration in various positions – the last of which was as a staff attorney working with Social Security administrative law judges.

Rod does not insulate himself from callers and clients like some attorneys, but makes himself as available as his schedule allows, taking calls and inquiries and returning calls promptly.  He believes you should be able to talk with an experienced source of information as soon as possible.

Rod is the past chairperson of Social Security Advocates, a past officer of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR), and is the founder and president of Circuit 9 Conference, Inc., a non-profit organization that holds annual meetings of experienced Social Security representatives from several western states.
