[USPRwire, Tue Apr 08 2014] The law offices of Michael Bartolic is a fully qualified ERISA lawyer. ERISA stands for the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, which was passed by congress and signed into law in 1974. An ERISA litigation might require ERISA lawyers to get involved.
ERISA lawyers generally practice in the areas of Benefits Discrimination and Interference Claims, Health Insurance Claims, Life Insurance and AD&D claims, Long Term Disability and Short Term Disability and Retirement Plan Claims. ERISA lawyers also practice in the areas of Severance Benefits Claims and Deferred Compensation Claims.
“ERISA is a law that was passed to give people protections,” says ERISA litigation attorney Michael Bartolic. “It was designed to protect employees from not getting their benefits they’ve been promised. The unrepresented or unsavvy claimant doesn’t often know how to use the law to their benefit,” he explained. According to Bartolic, this is especially true in light of the many court decisions that have sided with employers over ERISA litigation.
“When you have experienced ERISA lawyers on your side who focus on these laws you have a much better chance of settling a claim to your benefit,” Bartolic said.
Bartolic also helps clients with appeals of denied social security benefits. He also handles executive compensation, including advice and negotiation and clawback and forfeiture defense. For more information visit: http://www.michaelbartolic.com/.
