“It’s not uncommon for attorneys to practice employment and ERISA litigation; what’s difficult for many individuals is to find a lawyer who represents plaintiffs/claimants on a regular basis.”
Denise Yegge Tataryn practices in the employment law area and devotes a substantial portion of her practice to clients seeking long-term disability benefits and other employee benefits. Denise has been practicing in the employment law area for over 25 years and gained a special expertise with ERISA while working with the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation. Since then her ERISA practice focuses on assisting claimants through every stage of the claim, including strategic planning before filing a claim, appealing and litigating denied claims, and assisting with ongoing claims and lump sum settlements.
“Generally speaking, ERISA is unfriendly to plaintiffs. In order to prevail, an attorney has to be both detail-oriented and passionate,” explains Denise. “The earlier a claimant seeks assistance, the better, given the complexities of ERISA and its many pitfalls.”
In addition to successfully representing hundreds of disabled clients, Denise practices a wide range of general employment law, representing clients in matters ranging from discrimination to employment contract, non-compete and wrongful termination disputes.
