“I Will Fight for Every Wrongfully Denied Insurance Claim”

I started my legal career at a large law firm representing life and disability insurance companies in lawsuits brought by insureds whose claims had been denied. I acquired good litigation experience but it was gained at the expense of defending denials of insurance claims. I didn’t feel right using my skills as a lawyer to justify reasons to deny life and disability claims. I needed to make a change.

In 1992, I decided that I would no longer represent insurance companies. I started a small law firm representing insureds whose insurance claims were wrongfully denied. We started with only two lawyers and since then Kantor & Kantor has grown to a law firm of 18 lawyers

I am very proud of the fact that included among those 18 lawyers is my wife of 32 years and my eldest son who has decided to follow in his parents’ legal footsteps. Most of our lawyers have worked at Kantor & Kantor for more than a decade.

I am often asked by clients what I am most proud of about Kantor & Kantor. The answer is simple. We represent every client we can whose claim has been wrongfully denied, no matter the amount of money at issue. Our goal is to obtain justice, not merely to obtain the most money in legal fees.

Some lawyers decline to handle claims over what they perceive to be small amounts of money because it may not be financially lucrative to do so. I see more than the potential recovery. I see the individual client who needs help and the wrong that needs to be righted.

The denied $10,000 life insurance claim might result in a parent not having the funds to bury her child. The denied $500 per month long term disability benefit might be the difference between a parent being able to provide three meals a day for his child or keeping the roof over their heads.

From the many years of helping people, I understand that even what might seem like a small dispute can have dramatic impacts on our clients. Therefore, if the facts support the client, we will fight for them.

After three decades representing more than 4,000 individuals in their battles with their insurance companies, I still enjoy practicing law and I know without a doubt the reason my fire keeps burning is because I continue to get a thrill every time I get to call my clients and tell them we have won their case.

Client Testimonials

  • 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.”


  • Your kindness will never be forgotten.

    “Dear Glenn, Several weeks ago, you graciously met with my husband and me and provided us with invaluable advice vis a vis his application for Long Term Disability and the Voluntary Transition Plan offered by his employer. Your calming presence and thoughtful guidance was so gratefully appreciated and we both felt much lighter as we left your office. We are pleased to advise you that David's application for LTD was approved the day after we met with you (sigh of relief)! Had it not been, we knew when were we would go for representation. We both want to thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity of spirit. Your kindness will never be forgotten. With Warmest Regards, Lori and David C.”

  • With you in my corner, I felt enabled and no longer alone.

    “Seemingly at the end of my rope with nowhere to turn, a friend suggested I call the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, who referred me to you. From our first contact I began to feel hope where there had been none. You took over all communication with the insurance company. You kept me posted as things progressed and advised me as to each necessary action. What a relief you were! With you in my corner, I felt enabled and no longer alone. Some big insurance companies feel emboldened to take arbitrary action against those who do not have the resources to defend what is rightfully theirs. Thank goodness for people like you who advocate for folks in need. In closing, please know how very much our association has meant. You have restored my faith in the goodness of people and renewed my confidence in the future. I am forever grateful.”
