Long-term disability lawyer near me is probably the most frequently searched phrase for someone who has been denied long-term disability benefits and is now looking for an experienced attorney who can actually handle the case. Unfortunately there simply aren't that many attorneys across the country who handle ERISA long-term disability cases. There are many Social Security disability attorneys but that is a different area of law. There are even some long-term disability insurance attorneys who will handle your appeal but will later abandon you and handle litigation. (See my video rant on long-term disability lawyers who abandon their clients on this page.) The insurance companies know who these attorneys are, trust me. They also know working with one laywer for your appeal makes it harder for a new lawyer to step in and litigate your case.
The reality is that COVID-19 has taught all of us that you no longer need to be near the office of whoever might be the best lawyer for you in order to hire that attorney and, frankly, in order for them to appear in court. The ERISA regulations allow this.
Experienced long-term disability attorneys can handle cases all across the country. This is because most everything that goes on in federal court in this type of litigation is done electronically. This includes hearings. Experienced long-term disability insurance lawyers are often handling cases well outside their home state.
