Our Attorneys take on the big cases and win

A lot of people don’t think there is anything they can do if their insurance claim is denied. Even the average lawyer doesn’t really know what can be done in these situations. Insurance companies seem to have an entire library of documentation behind their decisions about whether a particular treatment is covered under the policy. No question these are hard cases, but you don’t have to be intimidated by the insurance giants and their mountains of paperwork. We have slayed these giants time and again. When insurance companies deny treatment based on their interpretation of policy, their decision can affect countless others in the same situation. We stand up for our clients and the untold multitudes who are not getting the test, drug or procedure they need.

Insurance companies deal with claims every day; that’s their business. You need a lawyer on your side with the level of skill and depth of experience to go toe to toe with the biggest insurance companies and make sure they do what is right. Rob Gianelli has been recognized as a leading California insurance law attorney by California Lawyer magazine and Consumer Attorneys of California. Even more importantly, he has won significant, multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients. Because of his work leading successful class actions, major insurance companies like Kaiser, Blue Shield, United, and others have changed for the better the way they deal with their customers when presented with a claim.

Gianelli & Morris is your California law firm for help in any of the following:

  • Insurance Bad Faith
  • Disability Insurance
  • Health Insurance
  • Life Insurance
  • Long-Term Care Insurance
  • Annuities Fraud

  • Unfair Business Practices

Insurance Lawyers who Help the Sick and Injured, Not Injury Lawyers who also take Insurance Cases

Insurance law is a highly specialized field. Many personal injury law firms list “insurance bad faith” among their practices areas after car accidents and slip and fall, but just because they negotiate settlements with insurance companies doesn’t mean they know what they’re doing when dealing with denials of claims or disclaimers of coverage. At Gianelli & Morris, we are not a personal injury law firm. We don’t handle dog bites one day and insurance claims the next. We are insurance lawyers who have developed a depth and breadth of expertise in California insurance law based on four decades of experience in the field. You can count on Gianelli & Morris to stand up for your rights and make sure you get the benefits you bargained for when you first purchased your policy. Why should you expect anything less?

Areas Of Practice
  • Health Insurance

    Were you denied a medical procedure, medication, specialist or test that you could have benefited from because the insurance company said it was “experimental,” “investigational,” or “not medically necessary”? Denials like these often mask the real reason: they just don’t want to pay for it. That’s not right, and we won’t let them get away with it.

  • Life Insurance

    When it’s time to make a claim, the insurance company decides your policy lapsed, even though you paid your premiums, or they say there was a problem on your application so they cancel the policy, after taking your money for years. Sometimes they pay after an unreasonably long delay or fail to pay promised dividends. We know all their tricks and how to stop them.

  • Long Term Disability
    Insurance Denial

    Did you apply for long-term disability benefits, only to be told you didn’t provide proof of loss in a timely manner, or your documentation is insufficient to prove a long-term disability? Did you initially receive benefits only to have them cut off long before you were able to return to work? Insurance companies hate paying expensive LTDI claims. We take on the insurance giants and make them deliver on their promises.
