I contacted Sivan Tumarkin because my insurance company denied benefits to my paraplegic son. Prior to contacting Sivan, I had reached out to several other law firms. I was thrilled when he took on our case. The entire team went above and beyond to fight the insurance company. I recommend the firm to anyone in need of a disability lawyer to resolve an insurance issue.
