What Clients Say

“I highly recommend Kirk’s legal services based on his personal attention to my case as well as his in-depth knowledge, professionalism, and integrity. This man cares about you, your rights and getting the money you are entitled to by law.”

– Nancy Pyke

“Sarando, I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to you, and your office for all of your time and effort on my claim.

I had gotten used to being told “I can’t help you” from professionals along my mystery medical journey and at our first meeting it was the first time in three years I’d felt supported and somewhat vindicated that I was not just over-reacting but indeed had been mistreated along my quest for LTD.

Some of the most common reasons for insurance companies to deny long term disability benefits include…


We are results-oriented and our fees are based on an agreed percentage of the amount we recover for you. If there is no recovery then there is NO fee.


If the insurance company has denied your claim or terminated your coverage, that is NOT the end of the story.
