Evan S. Schwartz of Quadrino Schwartz to Speak at National Disability Forum

Founding Partner of Quadrino Schwartz Attorneys to Address 16th Annual Conference on Litigating Disability Insurance Claims Regarding Strategies and Legal Precedent for Litigating Non-ERISA Long-Term Disability Claims

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 -- The 16th Annual Conference on Litigating Disability Insurance Claims is scheduled for Jan. 23-24, 2014, at the Carlton Hotel in New York City. Sponsored by American Conference Institute, the conference brings together some of the most esteemed professionals in disability litigation, including medical professionals, attorneys, jurists and industry experts.

Evan S. Schwartz, founding partner of Quadrino Schwartz Attorneys, one of the nation's premier disability law firms, will speak at the conference regarding the nuances of litigating non-ERISA disability claims. Mr. Schwartz will discuss some of his firm's past successful litigation strategies and outline new techniques to successfully obtain claimants their disability benefits in the current legal climate.

Mr. Schwartz is co-leader of his firm's Insurance Litigation, Claims & Consulting Group and Business & Complex Litigation Group and is Adjunct Professor of Insurance Law at Touro College's Jacob D. Fuschenberg Law Center. As one of the nation's foremost disability insurance attorneys, Mr. Schwartz has won countless cases and been recognized in numerous legal journals. Mr. Schwartz has been personally responsible for legal precedent that has an ongoing impact on disability litigation.

The most recent announcement of Mr. Schwartz's upcoming disability forum lecture marks the fifth time he has been invited to speak at the Litigating Disability Insurance Claims conference. Mr. Schwartz's expertise will be invaluable in helping industry professionals navigate recent developments in disability insurance law.

This year's conference addresses new challenges arising from recent legal precedent set by cases such as:

  • Metlife v. Glenn
  • Cigna v. Amara
  • U.S. Airways v. McCutchen

All parties involved in disability insurance litigation, including claimants, their counsel and insurers, have seen a recent uptick in the number of long-term, short-term, individual and ERISA claims. Rises in claims related to mental illnesses and other "non-visible" illnesses present new challenges in disability litigation.

"I am pleased to represent my firm at the ACI national conference and continue as a national leader, successfully getting professionals their bargained for long-term disability benefits," Mr. Schwartz said. "Our firm's unique model of helping professionals through all stages of the claims process and forcing insurance companies to pay those claims through the court system, when necessary, gives us in-depth insight into all of the challenging issues clients face when they become or are becoming disabled."

Quadrino Schwartz Attorneys has spent 20 years getting disability claims approved; stopping the termination of claims; handling ERISA appeals and litigation; and obtaining favorable settlements for disability claimants. Some of the firm's recent clients include an orthopedic surgeon, the former senior vice president of a French bank and a corporate telecommunications executive.
