OR Disability Attorneys
Roy Law is the Northwest’s leading long-term disability insurance law firm helping Oregon, Washington State, Hawaii, Alaska, California, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, and Montana residents appeal long-term disability insurance claim denials. These nine states comprise the federal jurisdiction of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is the law governing most long-term disability insurance disputes on the west coast. Whether you have a private long-term disability insurance policy or an ERISA group plan, Roy Law can help.
Roy Law’s disability attorneys provide free long-term disability insurance claim and appeal evaluations. To start, we usually request a copy of your denial letter and long-term disability insurance policy and review the relevant information. Afterwards, we provide you counsel on the best way to proceed. There is no charge for these services.
When hired, Roy Law’s long-term disability insurance attorneys usually work on a contingency basis, meaning we get paid only if you win. Sometimes our lawyers handle long-term disability insurance disputes for an hourly fee, but that is rare and considered on a case-by-case basis.
When preparing long-term disability insurance appeals, Roy Law’s disability insurance lawyers use their intimate knowledge of the law to craft the most persuasive case possible. Generally, state contract and tort laws govern disputes arising from individually purchased private disability insurance policies, while federal law, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”), governs disputes over group policies obtained through employee benefit plans.
Regardless of which laws govern your dispute, all disability insurance appeals involve an in-depth understanding of the law, your insurance policy, claim file, and the reasons for denial. A winning appeal also requires close coordination with your key medical providers and health care professionals. Crafting a persuasive long-term disability insurance claim or appeal requires a significant amount of time, energy, resources, and know-how.
Roy Law’s long-term disability insurance appeal attorneys have dedicated their practice to fighting disability insurance companies on your behalf. Please give us a call, and we will provide you the best service possible.
Chrisl Roy of Roy Law provided the services necessary for me to obtain my disability income from my private insurance.
As many others I tried to get my disability on my own and was denied twice. I then looked for help and found Roy Law. What a blessing Chris Roy and his staff have been. They took over all communications with the insurance but kept me updated on each correspondence.
Chris and Danielle came through, I was granted my disability. My only recommendation for others is don't go through the emotional first denials just call Roy Law.
I was referred to Roy Law by a paralegal at another firm that didn't handle private long term disability cases. She gave me two different numbers but when I asked her, "Who would you go to if this was your case?" she said Chris Roy. Calling Chris paid off immediately. Call as soon as possible and don't do anything until you get advice. If I hadn't spoken with him then, I could have made a fatal mistake by simply responding to a form mail letter. We did actually win the case against an employer that had managed to set it up very well in their favor. Roy Law was professional, competent and even kind. And when you're disabled 'kind' becomes a pretty important word, and pretty rare in a law office.
Chris Roy did a wonderful job getting my long-term disability reinstated. The staff are awesome and treated with the greatest of respect and kept me informed. Danielle is great to work with and I truly appreciate all that they did for me. I highly recommend this law office if you need help. They are the best. Thanks so much.

I had long term disability insurance for 20 years when I could no longer work do to a progressive disease I submitted a claim with my doctors support to insurance company. To my amazement I was Declined benifits and my appeal for benifits was also Declined. That process took over a year! I was absolutely helpless and nearly hopeless No income and could not get unemployment because I was unable to work.
Roy Law was a life saver. Chris Roy reviewed my case believed denial was unjust took my case and fought for me. Chris kept me informed and explained the process on a regular basis. I never felt forgotten I also felt that he genually cared. Without Chris Roy the insurance company just ran me over at times in a mocking "so what" way. Well Roy Law never backed down. I am so thankful that Chris took my case I can honestly say I would not of received the monetary benifits I had paid for all those years without his help. In addition he was compassionate and supportive. No one wants to hurt or be sick it's terrible and the insurance company treated me terribly had me in tears several times. Knowing he was on my side so caring and concerned about my well being got me thru. I highly recommend Roy Law.
