How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

We decided on this area of practice because we are passionate about representing individuals with disabilities and fighting against insurance companies. Far too often insurance companies prey on people when they are most vulnerable and it is a tremendous honor to fight them for abusing the trust and well-being of their policyholders.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Our strong national reputation with every insurance company in the country distinguishes our law firm. We have had landmark cases against insurance companies that are routinely cited as leading law, not just in California but in other states that follow our jurisprudence. We represent our clients with compassion and respect, and we advance their interests zealously to achieve the absolute best results possible in a very complex, competitive area of the law.

Bourhis Law Group, PC handles Long-Term Disability Insurance cases almost exclusively. This allows their attorneys to retain their unrivaled status as the most knowledgeable, practiced, and successful in the field.
