  4. Insurance
    I havehandled hundreds of claims for clients who have been denied their long term disability insurance. Most claims are governed by ERISA if the policy was obtained through your employer. If your claim is governed by ERISA, you must file a lawsuit in federal court to recover your benefits. If you are self employed or bought a private long term insurance policy, your claim is most likely governed by the state law in which you reside.

Excellent lawyer here!!
Mr.Bernstein is by far the best! I've tried all others such as Eric Shore etc. I can honestly say Mr.Bernstein is compassionate, honest and trustworthy. I've worked with him for the past 2 years and he has won my case! He has been there every step of the way, returning ALL phone calls and handles your case one on one not his SECRETARIES like some. I highly recommend Mr.Bernstein take my word for it you WILL NOT be disappointed!!
