McKennon Law Group - Los Angeles ERISA Litigation Lawyer

California Law Firm

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, also known as ERISA, governs certain employer-provided health insurance, life insurance, and disability insurance plans. The federal ERISA statute enacted was meant to protect employees by establishing remedies for benefits denials, breaches of fiduciary duties, and failures to provide notice of plan terms or benefit changes. Unfortunately, insurance companies and ERISA insurance plans ofen use the ERISA regulation complexities as a way to improperly deny ERISA claims for ERISA benefits causing individuals to appeal through an administrative process or bring a Federal court lawsuit to recover their ERISA benefits.

Many attorneys are uncomfortable with ERISA cases, and will usually not take these types of cases. Well-funded insurance companies have a clear advantage over sick, disabled, or grieving claimants who do not have experienced ERISA attorneys. Specific rules and strict deadlines govern the ERISA administrative process that individuals must follow before they are allowed to file an ERISA lawsuit. Individuals must comply with the insurance plan's appellate procedures and ERISA law in order to bring an ERISA lawsuit. An attorney specializing in ERISA law can help identify mistakes and weaknesses in the insurer's review and ensure your ERISA administrative record contains appropriate evidence needed to support your claim and navigate the appeals process.

The McKennon Law Group specializes in ERISA insurance and insurance bad faith claims, appeals, and trials. The attorneys at the McKennon Law Group have over forty years of combined experience in litigating ERISA insurance and insurance bad faith cases. Attorneys Robert J. McKennon and Scott E. Calvert have previously represented large insurance companies issuing policies of disability, life, health, and long-term care insurance.

USCIS to Begin Accepting Applications under the International Entrepreneur Rule

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today it is taking steps to implement the International Entrepreneur Rule (IER), in accordance with a recent court decision. Although the IER was published during the previous administration with an effective date of July 17, 2017, it did not take effect because the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a final rule on July 11, 2017, delaying the IER’s effective date until March 14, 2018. This delay rule was meant to give USCIS time to review the IER and, if necessary, to issue a rule proposing to remove the IER program regulations.

However, a Dec. 1, 2017, ruling from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in National Venture Capital Association v. Duke vacated USCIS’ final rule to delay the effective date. The Dec. 1, 2017, court decision is a result of litigation filed in district court on Sept. 19, 2017, which challenged the delay rule.
