Client Focused. Court Room Ready.

Senior Partner Lisa Kantor was named one of the Daily Journal's Top Women Litigators for 2009 on May 13 for her work with clients suffering from eating disorders.

Last year, Ms. Kantor won an appellate decision for client Laura Jacobs, who was diagnosed with life-threatening bulimia. After her insurance benefits were denied for treatment, Ms. Kantor sued the medical plan provider, Kaiser.

The appellate court reversed and remanded the lower court's decision in the plan's favor and not only ruled that Jacobs must be reimbursed for her treatment, but also required to plan to pay Ms. Kantor's fees and costs.

This year, Ms. Kantor won an appeal to the California Department of Insurance after United Healthcare denied benefits for Kimberly Shepard, who suffers from anorexia nervosa. The Department of Insurance ruled that Shepard met all the plan's requirements for medical coverage and ordered that she be reimbursed for her medical care.

Ms. Kantor continues to work not only with clients with eating disorders but also people suffering from a variety of disabilities, diseases and conditions for which medical plans and insurers routinely decline to pay benefits. These include fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, Epstein Bar, multiple sclerosis, lupus and many other types of invisible disabilities.

Client Testimonials

  • I won the appeal.

    “Hi Glenn- This is a very belated thank you for your generous assistance and advice last summer, when I was appealing UBH's decision for my son. I won the appeal, at least for care at the partial hospitalization level (they wouldn't budge on residential, but the facility was accepting the partial care reimbursement for residential treatment). But the appeal was a great moral victory, and I think it's a great thing to have in the record, just in case he needs to go for treatment again. Thanks again for your generous help, I was very grateful for it. Wishing you a most happy Thanksgiving.”

  • Your compassion for me and my situation is very much appreciated.

    “My thanks to you for pursuing my case with vigor. I don't know much about how these legal things are handled, but I could tell by your communications with me, making sure I was always informed, that you were on top of it all. Also, you were ALWAYS available to me to answer questions, and your compassion for me and my situation is very much appreciated. I have had limited exposure to the legal system and attorneys, but I have never been able to just call and talk to them, as I could with you. I always had to speak with someone in the office that couldn't really answer my questions.”
