Bartolic Law approaches claims for benefits due to long-term disability, short-term disability, life insurance and AD&D, health insurance, and retirement energetically and enthusiastically. We work to find a case strategy that fits the needs of your case, instead of trying to fit your case into a pre-set strategy. Our customized solution approach is the reason why we lead our peers in resolving claims with an approval from an insurer or claims administrator, rather than litigation and settlement. Our philosophy is you can spend a lot of time innovating, or you can spend a lot of time litigating, but you cannot do both. We carefully select our staff to fit our philosophy of finding creative solutions to the challenges of your case, and who are motivated to do the most help for a client. If you want to the innovative firm whose priority is to get your claim paid as quickly as possible, call Bartolic Law today.
