Firm Overview

Borealis Benefits Law backs you through every stage of your disability claim.

We'll help you apply for benefits or appeal a denial, assembling the statements and records to make your best case. We'll look for ways you can strengthen your claim and handle inquiries from your insurer. And if your claim is wrongfully denied, we can sue for a federal judge's independent decision on your right to benefits. You'll always have our candid advice and experience in your corner.

We consult for free and only earn a fee if you recover. We offer reduced rates for union members.
