About DeWitt Law, LLC
DeWitt Law’s practice is focused on insurance and ERISA litigation; labor and employment litigation; and commercial and business litigation and provides businesses both small and large the expertise and resources they need to evaluate legal issues both prior to and after the filing of a lawsuit. While most of those involved in litigation would obviously rather avoid it, it is unfortunately a fact of life in business and DeWitt Law has experienced litigation counsel that understands not only trial practice, but also how to successfully navigate settlement negotiations and properly evaluate the relative strengths and weaknesses of each parties’ positions.
Over the past years, businesses and organizations, both in the U.S. and in Canada, have been facing the challenges brought by the proliferation of disability insurance claims litigation. The rise in number of claims and claim denials, under both employer-sponsored group policies and individual policies, has driven an increase in the number of lawsuits filed. Employers, benefit plan sponsors, insurers, and claimants alike have been adversely impacted by the burdens of litigation.
