You need an ERISA lawyer to help you get your short-term disability benefits and you live in the Austin area. You get to choose your lawyer.

Two things are important about your relationship with a lawyer – first is the attorney’s qualifications and second is what does the attorney charge for the services.
What are the qualifications of a disability attorney?
- Length of practice,
- Experience in ERISA long term and short term disability law, and
- Whether the attorney handles just ERISA claims or handles other general types of claims, such as personal injury claims.
John Thompson has been practicing law since 1997 and has handled numerous ERISA benefit claims, appeals, and lawsuits. Guerrini & Thompson, P.C. (which operated as Bernard A. Guerrini, P.C. prior to 2018), developed a wealth of collective knowledge pursuing ERISA disability insurance benefits and individual disability insurance benefits for its clients since 2000.
Most important, the focus of their practice is ERISA long term and short term disability claims. They do not handle other benefit claims such as Social Security benefit claims, Veteran’s benefit claims, or workers’ compensation claims. They do not handle personal injury claims or business claims. They focus their practice on ERISA disability insurance claims and individual disability insurance claims.
When you are comparing lawyers for your ERISA claim for short-term disability benefits, consider whether other lawyers have these qualifications – the qualifications you want for your ERISA lawyer.
