A History of Success
Jonathan M. Feigenbaum is proud of what he has been able to accomplish for his clients, particularly in overcoming the very difficult hurdles faced by ERISA claimants. Insurance companies are particularly adept in using ERISA to their advantage in order to deny claims that should be paid.
Whether by judgment or agreed-upon settlement, we have worked tirelessly to ensure our clients are adequately compensated and that justice is served. We have recovered millions of dollars over the years for our clients who often had no one to turn to for help.
Except those cases that have resulted in a Court judgment, virtually all settlements are subject to confidentiality agreements prohibiting disclosure of the specific dollar amounts settlement. Although we are against suppressing information that should be available publicly, more often than not, accepting a settlement on confidential terms is in the best interests of our clients.
We have also successfully resolved disputes in favor of our clients saving them substantial sums of money when self-funded plans have demanded reimbursement for healthcare services.
Please remember that these cases and the results achieved were based on many factors and results differ from case to case, depending on the circumstances particular to each situation. The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon an attorney’s or a law firm’s past results. Our past successes should not be construed as a representation that we will be successful with any particular case in the future, and not every case in which we have been involved has resulted in a favorable outcome.
Some cases take a long time to resolve. This is unusual. A client who first sought benefits from Liberty Life Assurance Company of Boston in 2001 and had been litigating her claims for years. Finally the parties reached an agreement in July 2009. That case resulted in one United States District Court opinion, and six separate First Circuit Judge’s opinions. Denmark v. Liberty Life Assurance Co. of Boston, 566 F.3d 1, 10 (1st Cir.2009); (an opinion and a concurring opinion) Denmark v. Liberty Life Assur. Co., 530 F.3d 1020 (1st Cir.2008) (per curiam); Denmark v. Liberty Life Assur. Co., 481 F.3d 16 (1st Cir.2007)(a lead opinion, a concurring opinion and a dissenting opinion); Denmark v. Liberty Life Assur. Co. of Boston, 2005 WL 3008684 (D.Mass.2005) .
