See What Our Clients Are Saying

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.

James Fireman was incredible to work with! He was so passionate about my case and worked diligently, making all the right moves. He got my insurance company to overturn their decision to deny my LTD claim. Thank you for your efforts.

My case was complex and Albert Klein did everything to help me get through a disability claim. I was not in a position to pay an LTD lawyer and a contingency agreement was arranged. Albert listened to all my woes, and I cannot say enough of the professionalism.
