About me

 


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.

  • David Gary Jones

    I consulted with Glenn on a long term disability issue for my client, and he was incredibly helpful. Glenn and his firm have a great reputation in the San Fernando Valley for good reason. Glenn honed in on a legal issue that helped my client receive several hundred thousand dollars, and without his guidance on this very technical issue, it would have been impossible to resolve. I give Glenn my highest endorsement and would encourage anyone with a benefits issue to use his firm.
