We have a proven track record of successfully challenging insurance companies and getting our clients the benefits they deserve. Now, we’re ready to help you.

Plans offered to church and government employees, for example, are not subject to ERISA, and neither are plans you purchase yourself, such as through a bank. Understanding which regulations will apply to your claim is important, and a skilled Berkeley life insurance claims lawyer can assist you.
If your claim was denied, it could be due to a number of reasons. While each claim is unique, there are some commonly used reasons for denying life insurance claims, such as:
No matter what reason the insurer has given you for denying your claim, it is always wise to have an experienced Berkeley life insurance claims lawyer review your case and discuss your legal options.
