My employer-sponsored LTD benefits have been terminated once again and now that I have a large SSDI offset, I'm having troubles finding an attorney willing to take my case. Does anyone know any pro bono ERISA attorneys (or law schools) that might be able to help?
This was listed under education. I will move it to a more appropriate areas.
This response is for general informational purposes and not intended to be taken as legal advice nor does it establish an attorney-client relationship. See further disclaimers on the site. You should always seek competent professional advice in the legal area and jurisdiction.
Sorry to hear about your LTD benefit denial, we deal with denials and SSDI offsets like this all the time, and know that they are stressful. While I don't know any pro-bono ERISA attorneys, most work on a contingency basis, where there are no up-front fees or costs until the appeal is won. I would reach out to a lawyer ASAP to talk about what their fee structure is, and if they would be able to help.
(Also, none of the above shall be construed as legal advice, nor does it create an attorney/client relationship. For more detailed information, feel free to contact me for a consult. Thanks!)
You should be able to find a number of very capable ERISA LTD attorneys in the Bay area who handle claims on a contingency basis. If you have not had success in locating any, you may contact my office and we will be able to provide you with several such attorneys.
