Five Stars is not Enough
A little over a year ago our mother fell and passed away. As we were organizing her estate we filed a claim on her life insurance policy. They denied the claim initially bc they said she had not paid her premium. Actually, our mother had paid, but on one of her payments, not known to her, had been returned by the post office bc she failed to write the city and state on the envelope. The insurance company would not allow us to set up automatic payments and did not provided return envelopes with their address. Because of a simple mistake about not including all info on the envelope the claim was denied. Our mother had made every payment for 19 years and now the insurance company was denying our claim. We already had a hard enough time with our mother’s sudden death, and now we had to deal with this insurance claim. That is when we contacted the Boonswang Law Firm. Unlike most attorneys, Chad agreed to take our case. It was a case that would take a miracle to win. Well, Chad did the impossible and won the case for us and the insurance company honored our claim. We cannot say enough about Chad and his team. If you want an attorney that can do the impossible call this law firm. They understand the law and even the unwritten aspects of the law. They were marvelous and we are extremely grateful for their accepting and winning our case!

2 year battle
My husband passed 2 years ago. The insurance company would not review my accidental death and dismemberment until they had the proper documentation. For 2 years I fought trying to get the documents and failed. I tried to hire numerous of attorneys in my state and no one would take my case. I was blessed enough to come across their website and decided to give them a call. From that first encounter they gave me reassurance just by gathering all information and staying in contact with me every step of the way. It’s hard enough losing someone and all the hassle you have to endure so it was so refreshing for this law firm to lighten my load. From the bottom of my heart, I truly can’t thank you guys enough.

$180,000 settlement
My mother passed away in 2018, and I am the sole beneficiary of her life insurance policy. I was denied my claim, so I decided to call my family lawyer. She told me that I was denied because the insurer claimed some sort of misrepresentation and that it would require thousands of dollars in legal work to investigate the insurer's allegations. This wasn't an option, so I turned to the internet and found The Boonswang Law Firm. I spoke with its lead attorney, Chad G. Boonswang, who accepted my case. Now here is the kicker, there WAS an actual misrepresentation! Using his over two decades of experience in life insurance law (and sorcery, if I could call it that), Mr. Boonswang was able to hammer out a settlement to the tune of....$180,000. Needless to say, this is a life-changing sum of money that will ensure my two children graduate college without any debt. I wish I could give Mr. Boonswang 100 stars! I highly and enthusiastically recommend The Boonswang Law Firm!

They got me paid!
I contacted Chad's office when an insurance company denied/stalled/delayed payments after my spouse passed. It took a about 6 months but they eventually got it paid. I had all but given up and they were my last hope! Thankfully it worked out.

Insurance payment
I hired Mr. Boonswang after trying to get my insurance company to pay for almost two years. He contacted me as soon as I requested a call and had my check for me within two weeks. I had a great experience and can now move forward with life. I greatly appreciate him and his firm for what they have done!

A Law Firm That Cares!
After the passing of my wife, I filed the claim with her insurance company to receive the death benefits from two life insurance policies she had with her employer for myself and my children. We received a letter from the insurance company that one of my wife's policies was not going to be paid. The only thing they were going to do is reimburse the money paid for the premiums and we could file a petition to have them reconsider. This was just not right. I knew then that we could not resolve this on our own. After prayer, I found the Boonswang Law Firm through google search and contacted them. I explained our situation and they gladly took our case. They were able to get the decision reversed and the policy will now be paid in full. Thank you Boonswang for helping us get peace of mind. Thank you and GOD Bless You!

My spouse
So my husband passed away in 2019 in car wreck driving under the influence of a .232 due to his injuries. I submitted his death certificate to the insurance and they denied me twice because they claimed they couldn’t pay because he was intoxicated and it was way over legal limit… not legally I knew I couldn’t do this on my own and I was pensive over the years because he died from His injuries not intoxication. I hired chad and his team in November and they just got the check in hand. Thank you all a million times over….. from expecting nothing to getting paid I’d take that anyway!y’all are knowledgeable in what y’all do!!

In Memory of
Losing a loved one is obviously the worst thing that could ever happen to anyone but then when they think they’ve left you money to be able to move on with life you then find out it’s the claim has been denied and it wasn’t your fault you did everything you paid everything and they denied your policy payout. I spent three hours looking online and discovered this law firm and Chad and Michael have been amazing. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who is trying to resolve an issue with life insurance that has been denied. They are caring sympathetic and they work to get you every dime they possibly can. They are quick and have your best interest at heart. They are even overnighting my funds. Please utilize their services when needed help for denied life insurance, I promise you won’t regret it. Sincerely. And a BIG THANK YOU !!!! BOONSWANG LAW FIRM IS #1 Sincerely LS

Slow and Steady, dot the I's cross the T's
My case was unusual because I hired the attorney before I even filed the death claim. I was told there was no insurance , thus no claim . The 3rd party administrator for my spouse's employer tried to stop me from asking questions about the group term life insurance policy. I needed to know who the insurance company was , and the claim process. They actually had the nerve to send me 2 nasty emails telling me because of HIPAA (Laws on medical insurance mostly ) I had no right as the spouse and beneficiary to be asking any questions. I knew HIPAA had nothing to do with Beneficiary rights and the death claim process. After receiving the second email I pulled over and made several phone calls to several firms listed on Google. Most law firms were slow to react , didn't really listen to what I was saying. The Boonswang Law Firm was very different . Justin sent me 2 emails . John the intake specialist has plenty of experience with Employers / HR departments and the Third Party Administrators who choose to completely ignore ERISA Federal law and guidelines. Fast forward 5 moths later :, (The Third Party Administrator and Employer were not returning his phone calls , emails or demand letters sent out by The Boonswang Law Firm . Their standard response was "talk to our attorney" . The attorney for the employer, buried his head in the sand . The Boonswang Law Firm was relentless, and I thought we were going to have to sue to get the Employer's attention. and cooperation. Magically a claim form was sent out . ( It went to the wrong address to a party not involved in the death claim .It was scanned and emailed to me ,) Nothing shocked or surprised me when I realized all the games the Employer was trying to play . The claim form was submitted and the insurance company was slow to deny the claim, because again ,the employer would not assist in the information needed. The Boonswang Law Firm already anticipated the claim was going to be denied, and based on their past experience with this Insurance company they had fully anticipated the ridiculous excuses that would be given, . So this may sound strange but everyone was excited to actually get the denial of death claim benefits letter. The hard part was over. Now that the claim was denied and a reason was stated on paper Chad Boonswang (owner / partner ) and a fellow attorney Joseph could pull out the big guns and point out all the wrong procedures, that occurred . Chad has been doing this so long he actually knows the claims department managers at several Insurance companies . He has spent 25 years building and maintaining strong relationships with the key people who can get a denied claim reversed and approved with a phone call from him . He called the Insurance company , he explained all the broken laws and all stress and heartache I , a grieving widow of a war veteran, had to go thru, just to get the life insurance funds on a policy my husband bought and paid for . I deposited my check today The Boonswang Law Firm will not stop , they are not afraid to file as many lawsuits as needed , and everyone in the business knows it,. Insurance companies hate it when beneficiaries hire : The Boonswang Law Firm .
