“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In 1992, I decided that I would no longer represent insurance companies.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 20 lawyers.
I am very proud of the fact that included among those 20 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.
