Asurion Employee Files Lawsuit Against Life Insurance Company Of North America For Wrongful Termination Of Long-Term Disability Benefits

A lawyer from Colorado just filed a federal lawsuit in Federal Court of Colorado against the Life Insurance Company of North America (LINA). The Plaintiff, Carl E., was employed by Asurion.

What are your fees?

Shane H.

It was a pleasure to have had Attorney Jessup and his Assistant Kathy Bordas as my legal Counsel in my LTD case. From the very first phone call that I had with Attorney Jessup he showed me respect as well they listened to everything that I had say. They showed me that there was so body out there that was gonna fight for me and not through the case to the side. Every step of the process your law firm kept me in the loop and gave me options as to what the possible outcomes will be. Attorney Jessup and Kathy Bordas showed true professionalism during the whole process. They where able to get the insurance company to see my side and hopefully see the pain that I am in every day. Your firm was has given myself and my family some hope and happiness again. From my family to Attorney Jessup, Kathy Bordas we Thank You and God Bless.
