Mitchell O. Hefter is an associate with Kantor & Kantor who has been employed with the firm in one capacity or another since its inception in 2004. Before attending law school, he spent several years at Kantor & Kantor working as the Client Relations Director, screening potential new clients for the firm. He was also heavily involved in the firm’s marketing efforts, educating disability support groups and community organizations about the pitfalls of dealing with insurance companies.

Building on his passion for helping wrongfully denied insureds, Mitchell pursued his law degree and returned to Kantor & Kantor as an attorney in 2013. His practice is focused primarily on helping individuals obtain wrongfully denied disability and life insurance benefits in both ERISA and non-ERISA (bad faith) matters.

Mitchell was born and raised here in Los Angeles, and currently lives in Woodland Hills with his wife and two sons. He was a 5-time L.A. City Champion swimmer in high school and a member of the UC-Berkeley Men’s Swimming Team. He enjoys swimming and playing soccer with his sons, playing with his French Bulldog, and holds an irrational love of the University of Illinois men’s basketball team because of his father.

  • there are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us

    “I wanted to thank you again for all of your help. My daughter would not be in treatment without your help. I can never thank you enough, there are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us, and I believe saved my little girl. Taking her back to Timberline Knolls was very difficult in many ways, I wish UBH could know the damage they have done to her by having her go in and out like this. When she went into Timberline Knolls the first time she was not happy to go exactly, no one wants to go into treatment, but she was open to going in and ready, for the first time, to really look at her issues and work hard to get better. When she had to leave Timberline she expressed that she wished she could have stayed because she felt like she was finally at a place where she was getting better and, though it was hard, she was really opening up and dealing with her issues for the first time, something she has had a hard time doing. I just wanted you to know that she was going down to a really bad place and without you I don't know what would have happened except that she would not be at Timberline Knolls right now getting better and I thought you should know this. With unending gratitude.”
