You Have the Right to Your Benefits. You Have a Case.

Every benefit wrongfully denied is a promise broken. We’ll make the insurance companies and benefits administrators keep their promise to you and get you what you’re owed.

You might not think you have a case. You might not know that you can win against giant insurance companies and benefits administrators. We know you can.

We have the experience and expertise to help you get the benefits that you need, that you are owed, and that you deserve.

ERISA Claims, Appeals, and Litigation

Your benefit plan is a promise made to you, and that you may rely on for support. We’re authorities in using the Employee Retirement Income Security Act to get you what you are owed.

Retirement Claims, Appeals, and Litigation

Your retirement and 401(k) benefits are how you plan for a better future. If you are being denied promised future payments, we’re in your corner. You’ve earned it.

Disability Claims, Appeals, and Litigation

Your disability benefits are crucial when you are unable to work. We can help you through the process from beginning a claim, to challenging a denial, and in the courtroom.

Life/Accidental Death Claims, Appeals, and Litigation

When tragedy strikes, you shouldn’t have to fight insurance companies looking for loopholes in your policy. We help beneficiaries collect the support payments they need.

Health Claims, Appeals, and Litigation

Health care is complicated and confusing. Claim denials don’t have to be the final word. We can help. Put our expertise on your side.

Not sure? Contact us.

Benefit laws are complex. Big companies try to make it hard for you to understand your rights and remedies. If you think you are being wrongly denied benefits, contact someone on your side.
