Glenn Kantor, founding partner of Kantor & Kantor in Northridge, CA, oversees one of the largest ERISA law firms in the country. The firm focuses primarily on helping employees obtain wrongfully denied insurance benefits for disability, health, long-term care and life insurance policies under the Employees Retirement Income Security Act, but also works with people denied benefits under individual policies.
For more than 20 years, Kantor has represented people with disabilities such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, Crohn's Disease, Fibromyalgia, Epstein Bar, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, cancer, spine and back injuries, cardiac disease, depression, drug and alcohol addiction and a host of other conditions against insurance companies who have wrongfully denied health, disability or long-term care benefits. He has also helped family members obtain wrongfully withheld life insurance benefits in situations regarding DUI deaths, domestic partnerships, failure to disclose, and improper enrollment, among other issues.
In 2011, Kantor worked with California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones to help pass Insurance Code section 10110.6, a law that bans “discretionary clauses” in insurance contracts and prevents disability insurance companies from inserting language into polices that gives them discretion to deny claims.

I don't write these things often. Glenn Kantor and his team are on anybody's short list for "best ERISA counsel" in California, and a slightly longer list for "best ERISA counsel" in the country. They are respected on both sides of the Bar, and in the eyes of the federal judiciary in California.
