My experience with Roy Law has FAR EXCEEDED my expectations. In five months, Chris, Danielle and the rest of the staff won my appeal for long term disability. When I started the process of retaining Roy Law, I was skeptical of whether the firm could help me or not. After I inquired about their representation, Chris and Danielle called me immediately. Within 24 hours of explaining my case to Chris and Danielle, I shared their confidence that we would win the appeal.....and win they did. Danielle is truly a saint. She promptly answered every email and every phone call I made (and there were tons!) with patience and support. She was empathic to my chronic disability and genuinely concerned for my well being. Please DO NOT hesitate to use Roy Law for your disability case. A+++ rating. Thank you, Roy Law

Facing permanent disability and unable to work I thought my insurance would cover me, boy was I wrong! I had paid the premium for many years through my employer just in case something ever happened. With no where to turn, being denied by insurance and depleting all savings just to survive I felt helpless!

Searching the internet I found Roy Law. Taking a chance I called. What a godsend ! This Law Firm, and in particular Chris Roy, saved the day. I found everyone to be professional, caring, diligent and timely. They are not only good at what they do but they take the time to make sure you understand what you're faced with and the paths to help you make the best decision. Chris and his team were successful in turning my situation around. Chris truly cares about what they do and why they do it, and for the right reasons. His firm knows the industry and how most insurance companies only care about the bottom dollar and not necessarily about your health or situation.

I'm glad I found Roy Law and highly recommend them and their ability to Help! Don't hesitate to call or give them a try. I know I'm glad I did!

I found Roy Law in an internet search. They were professional, caring, very knowledgeable, knew exactly what to do, and how to get the right information they needed from my doctors to successfully represent me and win my case. Now I have monthly income, health insurance, and I can take care of myself. I’m very thankful and I would recommend them to anyone who has a legitimate long term disability case. Roy Law will fight for you and keep you informed what is going on at all times. Roy Law knows what they are doing. You can put your trust them.

Roy Law represents individuals throughout Alaska who have been denied long-term disability insurance benefits. In Alaska, ERISA governs most disputes over long-term disability insurance policies obtained through employee benefit plans, while state contract and tort laws govern private long-term disability insurance policy disputes.

When ERISA applies, residents of Alaska may challenge denials of long-term disability insurance benefits in federal court, the United States District Court, District of Alaska, which has five courthouses throughout the state located in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Ketchikan, and Nome. ERISA provides contractual damages, interest, and reasonable attorney fees and costs for those who prove they were wrongfully denied long-term disability insurance benefits.

For residents denied benefits under private disability insurance policies, Alaska state contract and tort laws allow claims for breach of contract and bad faith. Breach of contract claims allow for recovery of contractual damages, interest, and reasonable attorney fees and costs. Bad faith allows for recovery of damages over and above contractual entitlements like compensation for pain, suffering, and emotional hardship. Most private disability insurance disputes are heard in Alaska Superior Court, in courthouses located throughout Alaska’s four judicial districts.

If you are a resident of Alaska who has been wrongfully denied long-term disability insurance benefits, please give us a call. Roy Law does not take every case, but we will evaluate your claim for free and give you all options for moving forward with your claim. If Roy Law takes your case we will give our best effort, and put together the most persuasive claim or appeal possible.
