Employee Benefits (Life, Health & Disability) Claims

We represent employees in their claims for insurance benefits, including life, health, and disability insurance, which are subject to federal law under ERISA (“Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974”).

We know how to prosecute claims against insurance companies and plan administrators when they have wrongfully denied claims for life, health, and disability insurance benefits to current or former employees and insureds because we used to defend the insurance companies in such actions. Therefore, we know the loopholes, strategies, and other tactics they use to avoid paying your claim for benefits. We know how to handle your employer, insurance company, medical providers, private investigators, and others involved in the processing of your claim, including their strengths, weaknesses, and strategies. We also are very knowledgeable in presenting your claim to them in a bulletproof way so they cannot utilize the loopholes contained in the policy language in order to deny your claim for benefits. We know how to get you paid!

We handle initial claim filings, appeals on the administrative level, and court actions and appeals. We represent employees on a contingency fee (percentage) basis in these cases so employees who would not otherwise be able to afford legal representation can retain an attorney without paying up front. We only get paid if you win.

We have taken on the following insurance companies:

  • Ameritas
  • Fidelity Life
  • Globe Life
  • Group Health
  • Guardian
  • Hartford
  • Liberty Mutual
  • Lloyd’s
  • Mass Mutual
  • Met Life
  • New York Life
  • Regence
  • Standard
  • State Farm

  • She is a warrior, and I loved working with her!!

    “Kristi is absolutely the best at what she does!! She goes above and beyond to meet her client's needs, and is extremely knowledgeable in her field. She's a dream to work with - communicates quickly and effectively, is able to see the bigger picture, and utilizes creative strategies throughout the process. Kristi is an incredible advocate, and expresses genuine care and concern for her clients. When the need for an attorney arises, it can be during some of the most stressful times in our lives... Kristi recognizes this, and counsels with positivity and encouragement throughout the process - while still remaining realistic and professional. I highly recommend her and would love to work with her again should the need arise.”

    A.K.

  • Confident, Trustworthy, and Extremely Thorough!

    “Starting out, I wasn't sure where to look or who to talk to about my legal issue and I had the great fortune to connect with Kristi for a consultation. She took the time to really listen to my situation and I immediately felt confident and protected moving forward. She made everything clearly understandable and explained every step of the process. I absolutely made the right decision when I hired Kristi to represent me and I am very thankful for all of her excellent help and care. Calling or hiring an attorney can be a stressful, confusing and intimidating process but having Kristi on my side was a huge relief and she made the whole process very easy for me. I cannot recommend her highly enough!”

  • Responsive, Efficient, and Thorough!!

    “We did not know where to begin in our search for legal representation and were very fortunate to be connected to Kristi. It is a daunting and intimidating place to be when you need to begin to look for an attorney and navigate legal matters but her responsiveness, knowledge, and vast experience put us at ease. Upon having our first conversation she knew exactly what steps needed to be taken and promptly helped us resolve our situation. We feel very grateful to have had Kristi represent us and recommend her without reservation.”

  • The only attorney I trust

    “Kristi, quickly became my trusted advisor and very fierce legal voice. She represented me in a labor related case and did so with deep passion and professionalism. I really appreciated her responsiveness and ability to anticipate the next challenge we would be faced with during the matter. She successfully defended me and reached a goal we set early in our conversations to represent me. She will forever be my go to legal counsel and trusted advisor in any business and personal matter that I may encounter.”

    O.S.

  • Best Attorney, so grateful she is on my side.

    “Meeting Kristi has changed my life. When my Mom passed away, the Life Insurance denied my claim. After hiring Kristi she was able to settle the claim fast and efficienty, even after another attorney had failed. She is extremely attentive, kind, yet makes things happen. I immedietly hired her on a property division case and she is often working on my case until 1 am, and responding to my emails on Sunday nights. I plan to hire her for all my legal needs for the rest of my life. I can not say enough how much she has helped me. Kristi is extremely hard working and dedicated to her trade. I would recommend her to all my family and friends.”

    “We were very impressed by her work ethic and winning attitude, which ultimately prevailed. She got us the exact results we were looking for quickly and efficiently. Would definitely hire again if needed.”
