Michael and his team were extremely helpful with my disability appeal. Michael is smart and his response to my calls or emails was very fast. He always took his time with me explaining the process. I know I would not have been able to overturn the insurance company’s decision without you! Thank you for all your help!!



Amazing. Professional. Knows every aspect of the law in this area – client rights, case law, etc. highly detail oriented, didn’t miss a data point in thousands of pages of dense data. All while being responsive, personable. Fantastic staff. Highly recommend.

My consultation with Bartolic Law was incredibly helpful, and reassured me of my rights and options while on short-term disability. Michael was clear, concise, and focused on making sure I knew every option available to me as I navigate my path forward. He was also very willing to help review policy documents to ensure I understood my situation fully. I would recommend Michael to anyone needing legal assistance with their short- or long-term disability claims.

Michael Bartolic is a truly caring and expert attorney. He secured disability payments for our family member by using his experience, skilled staff, litigation experience, and know-how, and he made a profound difference in my daughter’s life. He is both efficient and respectful in his dealings with clients – a rare combination. I especially appreciated his accessibility and openness in helping us understand the complexities of disability appeals. I would strongly recommend him.

Michael Bartolic and his firm represented me in my disability claim and I could not be more pleased with the experience! Michael is a dedicated, intelligent and kind attorney who truly cares about his clients. Michael fought a hard battle – every step of the way! Michael operates his practice with first-class integrity and professionalism and he genuinely helps people when they are struggling to get the benefits they deserve. Michael, and his team, are the go-to disability experts (specializing in ERISA law) in the Chicagoland area!

Joseph B.


Michael Bartolic is a very knowledgeable ERISA. I just watched him handle an argument at the 7th Circuit on a case that we co-counseled and he did a very good job.

Michael’s representation has been the best we have ever experienced in dealing with the legal system. He is very knowledgeable, diligent, easy to work with, and most importantly, he gets things done. He was behind us from the beginning to the end and never gave up. Michael and Cheslynn are a great team. Highly recommend Bartolic Law!

The consultation with Michael was great. He really knows his stuff and I would recommend his expertise to anyone who needs a great attorney. Thanks again, Bartolic Law!

Chessa H.


When my long-term disability insurance claim was unceremoniously denied after several years I was scared and at a loss. I reached out to several law firms to review my options. Bartolic Law answered all my questions clearly and took the time, prior to my signing a contract, to make sure I fully understood the process. I didn’t feel pressured or rushed to commit to using them to get their attention. They worked diligently through crafting my appeal and delivered the best result possible for me. They didn’t make promises they couldn’t keep, but met the standards they set out and in the end exceeded my expectations of their representation. I would highly recommend using them. Nobody wants to hire an attorney, but if you are in need, Bartolic Law is a great partner to help you navigate your legal battle.


I can’t thank Michael Bartolic and his team enough for their assistance with my LTD Disability Benefits. He won my case and I can’t be more grateful for their assistance and professionalism. They are the firm to go with for any disability issues. Thank you!

Charmaine G.

Mr. Bartolic and his staff recently won a case for me against my employer insurance company. They did an awesome job and I can’t thank them enough for winning my case! They were very professional and kept me well informed.

Lisa W

I can’t thank Bartolic Law and his staff enough. After a stressful period of time waiting for Long Term Disability Benefits (initially denied) to be approved, Mr. Bartolic was able to get my LTD Benefits approved.

Laura L.

Thank you for your help and guidance, Mr. Bartolic. I would and have recommended his law office to my family and friends.

Thompson I.

From the moment I contacted Michael Bartolic to now, attorney Bartolic has been absolutely one of the best professional attorneys that I have had the pleasure to work with. Very knowledgeable, straight forward and an absolute warrior for their client (meaning me).

I have been fighting an uphill battle to get the benefits that I’d paid for during my employment. Attorney Bartolic took the challenge and has made me feel that I am not alone in this journey. I was tired and was feeling pretty low but now my head is back up and I know that I am not alone; because I have the best attorney for the job.

Theo V.

I hired them to help with long term care claims and disability insurance claims. They have done a great job and I am very happy with the results. I would definitely use them again and would gladly recommend them to friends. They are very responsive, knowledgeable and understanding, all of which are extremely important when you are having health problems interfering with your work and life.

The diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis was devastating. The symptoms are unpredictable and life-altering. Attempting to obtain disability benefits to provide financial security for my family was overwhelming. Bartolic Law eased this burden by handling the complex process of filing my claim for disability and guided me, step-by-step, through the process. Bartolic Law understood the significance of the key concepts and terminology used by my disability insurer, obtained the necessary information needed to assure that my claim was clear and well-documented, and educated those reviewing my claim about my disease. My team at Bartolic Law was professional, experienced, compassionate and aggressive in handling my claim. Bartolic Law gave me peace of mind, and the freedom to focus on my health and my family. I highly recommend the professional services of Bartolic Law.

Ross J.

Michael Bartolic is a highly skilled and personable professional who provided me with the personal attention I desired. He is diligent and committed to his work and professional development. Michael is a man with a passion for the law and kindness in his heart. I consider myself fortunate to have had Michael Bartolic represent me in my recent disability case.

Jenna H.

My experience with this law firm was positive from the first telephone interview. I researched many lawyers. I started with a simple Google search. I wanted a downtown office and a lawyer that had experience with my type of case. But more importantly I found a firm that took the time to answer all my questions. When I talked to Michael in person he gave the impression of a man who seemed to care about my case. As my case developed they called and kept me in the loop. I was surprised after a short time had passed that the insurance company ruled in my favor. I have to believe if not for Bartolic Law I would not have been receiving any of my LTD that I paid for while working at my company. My experience with Bartolic Law has been better than good.

Robin K.

When you think of most lawyers, you think of them not wanting to call you back. You were completely different. Not only did you win my case, but you took the time to communicate with me and explain things to me. I don’t know what I would have done without you!

Miranda B.

Throughout this past year, I’ve wished many times that I could meet you, and thank you in person for all the hard work you’ve done for my family. Thank you, especially for believing that our cause was just. If you ever find that your travels take you through [city], please let me know—I’d love to meet you! Have a happy life! All my best!

Ben M.

Thank you for making a profound difference in my life! I am finally at peace with [husband’s] passing, and am slowly achieving a quiet measure of happiness. Together, you made this possible.

Vicky C.

I can’t tell you how much I appreciated working with you. You made yourself available to me when I called and you were on top of everything. You did a terrific job with my case and quite frankly, I could not have asked for more. I wish you every success with your practice and your personal life. If I’m back in Chicago, I’ll make sure and look you up.

Allan C

I just want to say thank you for your interest and hard work in our case. Have you ever won a case in that short period of time? Your parents must be so proud of you. You’re a nice, well-mannered, smart young man with a great future. God bless and take care.
