Disability/Life/Health Insurance, Pension and Employee Benefits Attorney

Disability insurance, life insurance and health insurance, often provided as part of your employee benefit package and pensions can be a very specialized area of the law. Consult an experienced attorney with the ability to handle your case from the initial claim through the end of any lawsuits.

At the Law Offices of Laurence F. Padway, we advocate for employees seeking:

  • Disability/Life/Medical/Accidental Death and Disability insurance benefits, whether you purchased a policy yourself, or the insurance is provided as part of your employee benefits
  • Benefits due under ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974)
  • Pension plans, including employer-sponsored plans, CalPERS, CalSTRS and CERL (County Employees Retirement Law of 1937, which provides for pensions for county employees)

From our Alameda County office, we serve clients across the Bay Area and Northern California.

Larry Padway is one of only a few attorneys knowledgeable in claims under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and state and local government employee pension plans. These laws are complex, archaic and unforgiving. You may already have an attorney for your personal injury, workers' compensation or Social Security Disability case. If you also have a pension or disability insurance claim, we will work with your other attorney so that you can have the best representation on all of your claims.

As a leader in the field, we have changed the way disabled employees are treated in corporate mergers throughout the country and have helped to pioneer the proof of disability in cases involving chronic pain and fatigue. You can review some of our other results here.

We have more than 35 years of experience representing consumers wrongfully denied their insurance benefits. Does your insurer treat you as well when you make a claim as it did when it sold you the policy?

Experience Matters When Dealing With An Insurance Company

For more than two decades, we have fought large insurance carriers that put their interest in the bottom line ahead of policyholders. We will effectively advocate on your behalf at each step, which may include litigating your case in federal court. Let us handle the legal aspects, so you can focus on getting the treatment and care you need.

Attorney Larry Padway will make sure you are treated fairly. He can also explain the coordination of benefits between Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), workers' compensation and ERISA. Our team will respond promptly to questions and provide dedicated, personalized service throughout your case.
