About Lexpert

Long Term Disability Law

Law has become a highly specialized profession.  It is rare for lawyers to be experts in more than one or two practice areas.  Lexpert therefore includes various categories, from aviation to workers’ compensation.

Long term disability law has its own category, which Lexpert describes as follows:


The Long Term Disability practice area focuses on matters related to long- and short term disability, critical illness, and life policies, usually offered by employers to employees and provided by an insurance company in case an employee cannot work due to injury or illness. These policies are also sold as private, individual policies where the policyholder pays the premium. For example, self-employed professionals often purchase disability benefits coverage, critical illness and/or life policies directly from an insurance company. The representation of plaintiffs and insurers focuses on the settlement or litigation of insurance claim disputes. Practitioners must comprehend the interface of all provisions of unique insurance policies and consider the spectrum of disabling conditions or critical illnesses that include physical, psychological, cognitive, and autoimmune conditions and events. This process must also integrate a full understanding of statutory and other contractual benefit and pension plans, taxation implications, and the overall question of entitlement to a one time, or ongoing benefit.

Leading Long Term Disability Lawyer

Michael was voted by his peers as one of the 2023 Leading Legal Practitioners in long term disability law, based on an extensive peer survey process, ongoing since 1994.
