At the Law Office of Julie A. Mersch, I represent clients in Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) appeals with pride, professionalism, and more than 20 years of legal experience. I welcome the opportunity to represent you.
Without the representation of a lawyer, ERISA appeals are often denied, due to the way ERISA is set up. As an experienced and knowledgeable Las Vegas ERISA attorney, Julie A. Mersch knows what it takes to fashion your appeal so that it will either be granted or, if not granted during the administrative phase, serve as the basis for a strong case before the federal judge.

Sin City and North Las Vegas ERISA Disability Lawyer
Minimum federal standards for employer group plans are set by ERISA and its promulgating regulations. When you have made a claim that the insurer has denied, you have the right to sue the plan fiduciaries for benefits after all administrative remedies have been exhausted.
Request Documents as Soon as Your Claim Is Denied
Immediately following the denial of your claim, you should request the documents that your Plan Administrator has referred to, generated, or relied upon (please see letters here - Employer & Insurer.). They should be mailed to you within 30 days. The U.S. Department of Labor allows you full legal access to these documents.
Thoroughly Prepare Your Appeals
If I conclude I can help you, I will draft and submit your appeal letter, gather medical records and employer reports, and make the all-important submission of these documents to the Administrative Record — a crucial step before the record is closed. If the plan fiduciary - usually the insurer - persists in denying your claim after you appeal, I will file a federal lawsuit under ERISA on your behalf.
