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 , 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.

We Won a Tough Case!
The best law firm I have ever worked with! Very professional with great communications and strategy. The Kantor team knows their way around the legal system and has direct experience with many of the judges and other attorneys. Kantor also has access to the best resources like the case P.I. and the negotiator. I'm very satisfied with their work and I highly recommend them.

Glenn Kantor, Kantor & Kantor Absolutely the Best!
Glenn Kantor and his team at Kantor & Kantor came highly recommended to our family. Our situation came about quickly and urgently during COVID. Start to finish, Mr. Kantor and his top notch paralegal helped us submit the initial disability application within just two weeks. The likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed out of reach. However, not only were Mr. Kantor and his team able to help us procure first private company short term disability, then long term disability, but were also able to preserve my husband's life insurance policy from his employer without any further premium payments by us. They also had a first-rate recommendation for a social security attorney, Megan Ditolla, who was able to help secure the SSA benefits as well. These two firms work seamlessly together to get disabled persons the benefits they truly deserve, and all done with compassion, very quick response times to all questions and concerns and much needed humor sprinkled in. Their calm and empathetic demeanor offered me much needed emotional support and support to those I care about most. My husband, children and I are eternally grateful for their over-the-top 200% EXCELLENT service and I would highly recommend Glenn Kantor and his team at Kantor & Kantor without reservation to all who need these types of services. Three words: ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!!!!

The leading national Disability claims law firm
Kantor & Kantor LLP, the leading national Disability claims law firm, represented me in claiming STD, LTD and Chronic illness coverage. Glenn Kantor was professional and compassionate during a very hard time period. In addition, the firm went above and beyond throughout the application filing period, guiding and supporting me until all claims were approved. Kantor's lawyers and paralegals are experts when it comes to Disability claims representation and I would not hesitate to strongly recommend them to anyone who have a claim with an insurance company.

Spectacular Service
We talked to several different firms before I made the choice to talk to Kantor & Kantor. My husband and I were having a hard time dealing with The Hartford and LTD denial. Mr Kantor spoke with us directly and told us how to handle the appeal letter. He was honest in telling us he did not think we needed an attorney yet. He gave us guidelines for our letter and gave us suggestions on our steps to take. Sure enough, he was correct! The Hartford reinstated my husbands LTD payments within weeks of us sending the letter. I will definitely call Mr. Kantor to represent us in the future.

Very Helpful
I highly recommend Glenn and the team at Kantor & Kantor. While they ultimately decided our situation didn’t need a lawyer yet, they were very generous with their time. I really appreciated their honesty in this; it was our first experience reaching out to a law firm. They looked over some things for us and made sure that we didn’t take any actions that would hurt our case if it did end up progressing. They were timely with their initial response, and provided multiple ways of contacting them which made them easily accessible. We will definitely use them in the future if we find ourselves in need of a lawyer!

Kantor & Kantor, LLP won my case
I can't say enough about Glenn Kantor and his staff members. I had the unfortunate circumstance of a group life policy issued by Cigna and owned by Life Insurance Company of North America not paying out on a family member's death. The first application I sent in was rejected as well as the appeal I also did on my own. Both death benefit rejections were for bogus reasons. Fed up, I researched lawyers that practice this specialty law and retained Kantor & Kantor. Don't give it another thought, call them. Staff members Glen, Sally, Sarah and Stacy won for me and my family. Thank you.

Very experienced, helpful, and knowledgable
Glenn Kantor is extremely knowledgable. I can't emphasize enough how helpful the firm has been in quickly getting to the heart of my case and helping me plan. Since they're a bigger firm, they have a wider breadth of expertise about how cases like these go; they've clearly been practicing a long time and can make judgements about how things are likely to go based on their experience.

Exactly the person I needed to talk to
I was having a difficult time finding someone knowledgeable about disability and medical insurance and how our company and myself should approach pending disability. Then, Glenn called me and we spoke for several minutes and during that call I received excellent information, more than I could have possibly imagined. Glenn was able to guide me through the issues of disability and how to go about dealing with the decisiion for me to go on permamnet disability. Then, he offered to review some of my policies to determine the best course of action. The time he spent with me was so valuable and his demeanor was so calming. I was certainly impressed, the say the least. I can highly recommend Glenn and his firm if you have any disability issues.

Excellent Experience
We had an outstanding experience with Kantor & Kantor, LLP. Working with Glenn Kantor and staff, to appeal denials of Short Term Disability (STD) and Long Term Disability (LTD) payments for our daughter. She became disabled by Dysautonomia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome while working in Washington D.C. She has had to move back home to California. The insurance company denied continued STD, then denied the LTD. Glenn worked with us to lay out a strategy for testing and information to provide in the appeals. With his expert guidance, recommendations and support, the full STD was paid, and the denial for LTD has been reversed. We are very grateful to Glenn and Kantor & Kantor, LLP.

An Excellent Lawyer
Glenn has one of the most comforting and inviting smiles that a man can have, and his demeanor speaks to a person of empathy and kindness. However, beware believing that is the only side of him the moment a court case begins. To call him precise and efficient would be an understatement. He is viciously intelligent, with an immense knowledge of law and situational awareness. He is one of the most eloquently spoken individuals I have ever come across. His assistance in my case was invaluable, and in my time of turmoil, talking to him at the start put me at ease more than anything else.

Client For Life (if needed)
I got a recommendation from a well connected person as to who to contact about my LTD case. I am so glad I did. Glenn Kantor helped us in a dark time dealing with my insurance company while also battling a debilitating illness. He has impressive knowledge and decades of experience in helping people with disabilities. He returned calls/emails quickly, walked us through the process and put us at ease. He and his firm are the gold standard others should strive for. EXCELLENT attorney and EXCELLENT firm.

Will Fight for You!
When the life insurance company declined my claim due to an alleged clerical error, I thought that all hope was lost. I was initially going to give up, but wisely chose to hire an attorney. After interviewing several, I made the decision to hire Glenn Kantor. He did an outstanding job representing me, and consequently, I was awarded the benefit as my mother had originally intended. The best way to describe it, is that Glenn fought for me. He was always accessible and responded to questions, and took the time to explain the situation. In summary, I felt that he cared about me as a client. I highly recommend Glenn and his firm. I do not typically write reviews, but feel it is warranted in this case.

I am happy to write this review for Glenn and his firm. I found Glenn on Superlawyers and got extremely lucky to have found such a talented, empathetic, and all around A+ human being to help my case. From the moment I spoke with the intake associate, I knew this firm would do their best for me. Working with Glenn and his team is such a relief during what is most likely a difficult time. Absolutely the best service with expertise and compassion. Thank you for everything!

Deserving of 10 Stars
Glenn Kantor assisted us in reaching a settlement with our insurance company for recovery of out of pocket medical expenses which the insurer deemed not covered by our policy. Glenn fought with tenacity and took on the insurance company as though we were family. Glenn was responsive to our calls and helped us through a difficult period in our lives. In the end, he helped us reach a reasonable settlement and we are forever thankful to him for his diligent work. I hate the thought of ever needing to hire an attorney again in my life, but should the need arise I can promise that I will hire Glenn Kantor.

Very kind and knowledgeable
I am currently helping my father navigate how to apply for disability with a very serious illness. We had no idea where to start and we were reading misleading information online. Everything seemed extremely daunting, and I knew I had to check in with an experienced long term disability lawyer to make sure we did everything right from the get-go. You don't want to start this process and already mess up on step 1, and then get your application denied. Even if you do get denied, it's important to have someone like Mr. Kantor in your corner. He answered all of our questions and went out of his way to put a plan together for us. Not only that, I could tell that money takes a backseat to his genuine desire to help others. Now we know what steps we need to take and we feel much more confident that my dad will have the outcome he wants. I highly recommend retaining Mr. Kantor, you will not regret it.

"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.
