I hired Alan Kassan to represent me in an ERISA life insurance dispute. He was thorough, knowledgeable, and gave me advice that helped me to achieve a desirable outcome with respectful consideration of my financial resources. He cared about what was just and fair in my case. His effective representation made the difference at the bargaining table.
If you're reading this review then you're likely where I was about two years ago, disabled with no money and little hope of survival. None of us ever expect to find ourselves walking down this lonely road, but somehow fate has brought us here. If you're like me you dutifully paid your LTD premiums and expected to be protected in the event of a catastrophic health crisis, only to find that your contracted LTD provider is now the predator rather than the guarantor. Do not despair. Your perseverance has brought you this far, and the law offices of Kantor & Kantor will carry you for the rest of the journey.
Compassion, honesty, and integrity; these are the cornerstones upon which Mr. Alan Kassan has built his practice. During our first consultation Alan extended a courtesy and understanding that one only hopes to experience with family and good friends. He patiently listened to the litany of disabling medical conditions that restricted and limited my ability to perform the duties of my profession. The most nebulous of these was persistent and debilitating fatigue, which the mainstream has no reliable means of quantifying. Rather than dismiss my plight as my LTD carrier had, Alan made arrangements for objective fatigue testing, personally shouldering 60% of the cost. The results of this diagnostic were a salient feature in securing a win on appeal, and complete reinstatement of LTD benefits under my ERISA plan.
Alan is honest, period. He does what he says, and says what he does. There is no fine print with this attorney. He believes in full disclosure, and answered all of my questions (often multilevel and nested) regarding the contract before he was officially retained. After winning the appeal, his fee structure remained as contracted and agreed upon, without financial chicanery or the manifestation of "hidden clauses." Nobody likes surprise fees or deductions in their paychecks and financial settlements. After doing business with Alan I was pleasantly surprised to find that I got MORE than I bargained for.
Mr. Kassan is a consummate professional, and comports himself with the utmost integrity. These are impressive qualities in themselves, but when one considers the pressure of fraud and deception prevalent in the insurance industry, these accolades confer even more honor upon an individual who refuses to conform to unscrupulous standards. Alan is an intelligent, dedicated, and driven attorney who will fight for the benefits that you deserve. He's always available by phone and E-mail, and I feel like more than just a client to him; I believe that he genuinely cares about my well-being.
Alan Kassan has my highest recommendation as he provides outstanding legal representation with good old-fashioned family values. I submit this review in complete gratitude.
Alan Kassan is the most determined and professional lawyer I have ever met. He makes you feel comfortable in every way. Dealing with the hard headedness of some companies Alan has a way to make it seem almost effortless as if he has some magic power to think as if he were them. But he has your back 110%!! I would call him again if the situation arises in a heart beat. Great Job! Definitely Call on Alan when you are in a pinch.
