Firm Overview

Kantor & Kantor represents clients whose insurance companies have failed or refused to pay claims arising out of Disability, Health, Life, Long Term Care and other liability insurance claims.

The lawyers of Kantor & Kantor have helped people get medical care and treatment when their insurance company has denied it. We have helped people obtain medications when the insurance company argued the medications were not medically necessary. Many of our clients come to us after their claims for long term disability have been denied by the insurance company. We have sued on behalf of clients with conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, AIDS, Degenerative Disc Disease, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Arthritis, and scores of other disabling ailments.

Our firm also has extensive experience with the complex appeals procedure and Federal Court litigation of ERISA matters. If you, or anyone you know has questions about claims against their insurance company, contact us for a free consultation.

Long Term Disability
We represent clients whose insurance companies have failed or refused to pay claims arising out of Disability, Health, Life, Long Term Care and other liability insurance claims.
Many of our clients come to us after their claims for long term disability have been denied by the insurance company. We have sued on behalf of clients with conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, AIDS, Degenerative Disc Disease, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Arthritis, and scores of other disabling ailments.

We have successfully represented people in both ERISA and individual disability cases over the past 18 years. The denial of a disability insurance claim is one of the most financially devastating events that can happen to a disabled person. The reason is that the person who thought ahead and spent his or her money to buy insurance to protect themselves (if they are unfortunate enough to become disabled), sought to protect themselves from the hardship of disability and are not able to do so because the Disability insurance company denies the claim.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

Our firm has extensive experience with the complex appeals procedure and Federal Court litigation of ERISA matters, and we have helped hundreds of people who have had their employee benefit claims denied.

Most people are not aware of the fact that if their health, short term disability, long term disability, or life insurance are provided through their employer, disputes arising thereunder are subject to the federal law of ERISA and thus exempt from state law. In most of those cases remedies may be limited, and the rules and regulations for pursuing those remedies different or more restrictive than people expect. Our ERISA Lawyers have vast experience in handling matters in the specialized area of ERISA.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We NEVER charge for the first phone call. In fact, since our cases are handled on a contingency basis, our clients rarely have to pay us any money at all unless and until their cases are resolved favorably.

Alan Kassan

Since 1984, Mr. Kassan's practice has focused almost exclusively on representing plaintiffs in actions to recover damages against insurance companies and other defendants, and he has handled hundreds of these cases. His practice is now dedicated to helping people obtain the health related insurance benefits to which they are entitled under both the Federal law of ERISA and under state insurance bad faith law. Those benefits include those for Disability, Long Term Care, Health, and Life insurance.

Glenn Kantor

Glenn Kantor, a founding partner in Kantor & Kantor, LLP, has spent nearly his entire 25 year legal career representing Plaintiffs in Health, Life, Disability & Long Term Care insurance disputes. His firm has become one of Southern Californias preeminent firms in this area of the law. Mr. Kantor was also at the forefront of litigation arising out of the Northridge earthquake. In 2001, Mr. Kantor successfully argued Vu v. Prudential before the California Supreme Court. The opinion in Vu v. Prudential has become a seminal case significantly expanding the protections offered insureds under California law.

Since 2007, Mr. Kantor has annually been named a Southern California Super Lawyer in the area of health, life, disability, and long term care insurance disputes. For the past seven years in a row, Mr. Kantor has supervised more litigation involving employer provided health, life, and disability benefits than has any other attorney in the State of California.

On July 18, 2012, Mr. Kantor was among the attorneys to receive the honor of being named to the Daily Journal's Top 75 Labor and Employment Attorneys, which has been referred to as a list of top practitioners in California. Mr. Kantor was recognized as a litigator specializing in Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) cases; however, his influence does not stop at the courtroom steps. The Daily Journal noted that Mr. Kantor had worked with California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones to help draft a law banning discretionary clauses in insurance contracts. That law, passed in 2012, essentially prevents disability insurance companies from inserting language into policies that give them discretion to deny claims.

Mr. Kantor's favorite part of practicing law is participating in the mediation process. He conservatively estimates that he has represented in excess of 1,000 clients during mediations and settlement conferences.
