When we were confronted with mounds of notices from our Health Plan saying they were denying coverage of a (very expensive) medical procedure, we started reaching out to lawyers to see how much trouble we were in and who would be the right person to help us. After speaking to five different attorneys, sending documents, etc., we were wearing thin. Glenn Kantor was able to evaluate our situation rather quickly, after looking through a few documents and asking a few follow up questions, and all free of charge! Should this issue or any like it rear its head again, I'm going straight to Glenn.

I needed help getting BlueShield to change its practices. They denied me coverage for my Hepatitis C medication. My health plan is a company sponsored one so it fell under ERISA, there are no punitive damages awarded on such lawsuits so it was difficult to find an attorney willing to take the case. I spoke with Glenn Kantor and he wanted to help. So he took the case. Thanks to Glen's work and that of his Firm's Blue Shield changed its practices and sent approval letters to 1,000s of insured who had been previously denied treatment for Hepatitis C, in many cases this treatment is life saving and in all cases life altering. Without Glenn Kantor all of these patients including myself would have had to go without treatment or wait for a miracle. I highly recommend Glenn Kantor for your legal advocacy needs. Thank you Glenn!!!

I had carried long term disability (LTD) insurance for many years. Recently, my on-going health problems caused me to leave a very well-paying job. When I applied for my LTD benefits, the insurance company denied my application. I researched LTD insurance firms, and Kantor & Kantor came very highly recommended.
Kantor’s staff was very friendly and efficient in taking my initial information. This was followed by a call from Mr. Glenn Kantor, who advised me that he reviewed and saw merit in my case, and decided to pursue it. Mr. Kantor’s support continued throughout the claim resolution process. He participated in answering most of my emailed questions, advised me of certain upcoming milestones and events, and appointed various attorneys to pursue the day to day activities as appropriate for each phase of my claim process.
When we met during a visit to the firm’s office, Mr. Kantor was very generous with his time and advice. Together with Mr. Brent Brehm, the attorney assigned to manage my claim, he engaged me in the discussion and explained the process and his expectations going forward, based on his experience in negotiating and litigating similar cases. He also engaged me in the discussion to understand my wishes and needs, while allowing for the vast difference between his experience and my nearly non-existent legal knowledge in this field.
Mr. Kantor and Mr. Brehm successfully negotiated my case.
Based on my experience of the level of professional care exercised by Mr. Glenn Kantor and his team on my behalf, I very highly recommend the firm of Kantor & Kantor for any LTD claims and similar cases.

I reached out to the Kantor law firm about my 91-year-old mother's LTC policy having been terminated because she forgot to pay her bills due to sudden onset of cognitive impairment. She had been paying big bucks for this policy for almost 20 years, but hit a mental wall with all her bills last summer and is no longer capable of keeping up with her mail. Initially the firm wrote back and said they don't usually handle reinstatement cases. Then I received a personal email from Glenn who told me that my story kept him awake at night. He wanted to extend me a helping hand via email, gratis. His moral support and generous advice helped me through a very difficult process with the insurance company, and I'm happy to report that my mother's LTC policy has finally been reinstated after three grueling months and dozens of phone calls, faxes and sleepless nights of anxiety. Glenn is a real person who truly cares about people before money. He took it upon himself to keep in touch with me personally as well as send me a copy of a statute that helped me come up with the precise wording when crafting my own letter to the insurance company about reinstatement. I will not hesitate to hire Glenn down the line should my mom's insurance company ever give us trouble with a claim. He is a true gem.

I reached out to Glenn Kantor after being rejected for my LTD for cancer. He immediately got back to me, scheduled a call, and gave me key pointers on what to and what not to include in my appeal. I sent him a draft of my appeal and he suggested edits (all free of charge!). I am currently waiting to hear back from my LTD, but in case things don't go smoothly, I will reach out to Glenn without hesitation to take on this case- as he has proven himself to be an invaluable resource and a kind heart. Many thanks Glenn for all your help!

After having been diagnosed with tonsil cancer, I chose to have Proton Radiation instead of the conventional Radiation. After dealing with my medical insurance company and many denials, I sought legal representations from Glenn Kantor. He and his firm worked with me to help resolve my case with a fair outcome. Through the entire process, everyone in the firm was always very supportive, knowledgeable and handled every detail for me. I can truly say that Glenn and his firm are a top notch firm and I feel very grateful to have had such a wonderful experience in such a troubled time in my life.

I contacted the Kantor & Kantor law firm after thoroughly researching firms that handled ADA-related issues. I have a totally disabled daughter who had been denied by her insurance provider a replacement power wheelchair for the dilapidated chair she currently is forced to rely upon.
This denial came AFTER the necessary replacement had been APPROVED by this provider up to and including their CEO.
I tried my best to resolve this matter myself, but was met, repeatedly, by the sound of one hand clapping.
That's when I sought professional legal representation, and discovered Kantor & Kantor, and was fortunate enough to speak with Glenn Kantor, himself.
I explained what I'd tried, unsuccessfully, to resolve independently. He "felt" my frustration and sense of urgency in needing to achieve a successful resolution to this critical matter which was adversely effecting the health and well-being of my daughter.
He personally took ownership of my case immediately, and pursued it most effectively and appropriately.
The end result: my daughter is assured of having her replacement power chair within the next three weeks!
And ALL because of Glenn Kantor, and his all-star legal team's, research, action and timely resolution.
I really could not imagine a more successful outcome.
Glenn Kantor truly deserves a "Gold Hat" for legal expertise and timely resolution of our frustrating and disappointing
I highly recommend contacting Kantor & Kantor based on my personal, and firsthand experience.

We learned of Glenn's ERISA disability skills over ten years ago, when I was facing an unreasonable (but not unusual) termination of my Long-Term Disability claim payments from a heartless insurer. My wife and I spent nearly six months preparing an appeal to the termination, which we understood would likely be denied by the insurer regardless of the evidence presented from numerous doctor reports. Glenn and his staff repeatedly advised us on the best approach, spending many hours discussing and reviewing our appeal (at no cost to us). Although we were not surprised by the denial, the extensive information we provided in the appeal strengthened our case against the insurer for an eventual lawsuit that Glenn took on a contingency basis. And despite the large geographical distance separating us from Kantor & Kantor, Glenn guided us through all their court filings and correspondence required to bring the suit to the courts. Weeks after filing, Glenn hosted the court-mandated mediation between the two parties. Thanks mostly to Glenn’s knowledge and effort, the insurer agreed to pay all back-benefits and resume monthly payments at this meeting. Glenn was very understanding of our personal situation and offered a discounted fee for his representation – a very fair man.
Over the ensuing years, Glenn and his staff have guided us through multiple obstacles presented by the insurance company, including Activities of Daily Living reports, Physician Forms, and Independent Medical Examinations. He has a very understandable method of communicating the complexities of ERISA disability law and explaining the techniques used by the callous insurance companies.
Another positive of Kantor & Kantor - they are a family-run law firm, and we’ve been lucky enough to have dealt with the same attorneys, paralegals, and administrative staff for over 10 years! That is very rare in today's world of constant changes. In fact, when I speak with Glenn now, I feel I’m talking with a friend as much as a professional attorney.
We could go on (and, indeed, have offered to provide a more-personal reference); however, the details of ERISA battles are overwhelming. You likely have dealt with more than your share of woes - do yourself a favor and hire Glenn!

I personally would not recommend Mr.Kantor. I chose him by his bald catching advertisement add and got not at the best position with whole stuff experience here. It was very hard to get answered my questions, would take sometimes a days by e-mail, clerk did not return my calls and I got false information about my case. I put two stars, not one, because ones in awhile I got effort barely to get some calls personally from attorney or his assistants .Would definitely chose different attorney for any legal case matters.

I was dropped by my insurance carrier for reasons I did not understand. I almost let go but I was permanently disabled. I went on the Martindale Hubbell website and the very first firm listed with expertise to help me with the insurance company was Kantor & Kantor! I contacted them and had a consultation. I hired this firm. This firm went above and beyond diligently reviewing every detail of my case. Glenn Kantor is one of the best in his field. The entire process was over in a matter of months. I am truly and sincerely so thankful that I decided to contact them. I would recommend this firm to any and every person having problems with insurance companies. They are experts in the field they practice. The entire team - from his legal assistant to the managing partner gave their all. I want to again thank everyone who had a hand in handling my case. You were pleasant, thoughtful and truly dedicated to make sure the result was favorable. Ten stars to Kantor & Kantor!
