ERISA Health, Life & Disability
Attorney Serving Washington, D.C.
ERISA Benefit Law
Our attorney, Richard Carter, has represented insurers, fiduciaries, employers, and employees in protecting their rights under group benefit plans, including health, pension, and disability benefits. He now concentrates on Plaintiff’s cases. Our extensive ERISA litigation experience began in 1990 when he represented several young women with Breast cancer in a series of experimental treatment cases that received national attention. Since then our practice has evolved into a broad-based ERISA and non-ERISA benefits concentration.
Rich has widely published and lectured on up-to-the-minute developments in the complex area of ERISA litigation. Our cases have been on several “most important cases of the year” lists by respected commentators and are taught in Law Schools. Our in-depth knowledge of ERISA has also been utilized to represent clients facing the non-payment of pension benefits and breach of fiduciary duty issues.
