David M. Lilienstein, the founder of our firm, has extensive experience assisting policyholders with bad faith insurance claims and ERISA actions. As a tribute to his experience and skill, he has achieved Advocate status from the National College of Advocacy, American Trial Lawyers Association (now the American Association for Justice). Practicing in all California state and federal courts, he made regular appearances and spoke about insurance issues on KRON-TV's afternoon news and on KRON-TV's morning financial news program, Rob Black and Your Money. Further, he has written numerous articles on disability insurance. Mr. Lilienstein also was part of the team that tried the Hangarter v. Provident (UnumProvident, now referred to as Unum) case, which remains a landmark disability insurance case.
Alice J. Wolfson has a proven record of success in bad faith insurance cases, with an emphasis on individual disability insurance policies. In the landmark case of Hangarter v. Provident (UnumProvident), which has become one of the most frequently quoted disability insurance cases, she and her legal team obtained a five million dollar punitive damages award for her client. Further, she obtained a unanimous verdict in the federal court in McGregor v. Paul Revere (UnumProvident). Both awards were upheld by unanimous appellate verdicts.
Her preeminence among insurance attorneys has earned Ms. Wolfson regular speaking engagements across the nation, sponsored by the American Trial Lawyers Association, the American Bar Association and other highly regarded organizations. Further, she has authored numerous articles about insurance law and is a past chair of the Insurance Law Section of the American Association for Justice.
