Reasons NOT to Hire a National Disability Firm

    1. They are mega volume shops that have a very large ratio of staff to lawyers, and each lawyer is often responsible for hundreds of cases at a time, meaning they cannot devote adequate attention to your case.
    2. They advertise achieving “success” even when the result was a settlement of your claim for pennies on the dollar. That isn’t success.
    3. They are usually not licensed to practice law in your state, and insurers know it. As soon as the insurer sees the law firm is not licensed in Your state, it knows it can get away with a denial because the firm can’t sue the insurer in the correct court. The national firm will file suit in their state, subjecting your case to dismissal or transfer for lack of venue. Shortly after filing the complaint, the insurer threatens to get the case dismissed if you don’t settle low. The national firm then tells you your case is challenging, and you should settle for a low amount, never telling you the challenge is that the firm filed suit in the wrong venue.
    4. If you insist your case is filed in the correct jurisdiction, they will likely abandon your case, and leave you to find a firm like Bartolic Law to clean up their mess. We would rather avoid the mess in the first place.
    5. They handle your case the same way insurance companies do. They get medical records and medical opinions from afar without ever laying eyes on you and understanding why you are disabled.
