Wisconsin Employee Benefits AttorneysSecuring the Benefits Rightfully Owed to You
Employee benefits are a form of compensation or insurance on top of the typical wages employees earn for their hard work. They may include pension benefits, health insurance, life insurance, or disability insurance benefits. The value of these benefits is often overlooked until a time when you need them most, such as during retirement or a health crisis.
Employee Benefits Services
The employee benefits attorneys at Hawks Quindel, S.C. represent individuals with claims for benefits either offered through an employer-sponsored benefit plan or an individual policy secured outside of their employment. Many, but not all, of these claims are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Our Wisconsin employee benefits lawyers can help you navigate the process of obtaining benefits in any of the following areas:
Pension & Retirement Benefits
Pension is a broad term used to describe a retirement benefit such as 401(k), profit-sharing plan or a defined benefit plan, among others. Our attorneys have experience advising individuals making claims for pension benefits as well as assisting if a pension dispute arises. Learn More
Life Insurance Benefits
Our lawyers assist beneficiaries with life insurance claims that have been wrongfully denied. Sometimes under an Accidental Death and Dismemberment policy the insurer tries to find a loophole to claim the death was not “accidental.” Whatever the reason for denial, Hawks Quindel will closely scrutinize the policy and evidence to assist with getting your claim properly approved.

Health Insurance Benefits
As the cost for health care continues to rise, it is becoming more important than ever to have adequate health insurance coverage. Even with coverage, a health insurance company may deny claim payments because the insurer deems a treatment “experimental” or not otherwise covered by the policy. If that happens, our attorneys are ready to help. Further, if you lose health insurance benefits as a result of your termination or retirement, Hawks Quindel’s employee benefits lawyers can advise of your COBRA and ERISA rights. Learn More
Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) Benefits
State and local government employees acquire various employee benefits for their public service. These benefits are administered by the Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF). Eligible employees who are unable to continue working due to a physical or mental disability, are entitled to Disability Retirement (§ 40.63) or Long Term Disability Insurance (LTDI) benefits. Hawks Quindel’s employee benefits attorneys help individuals secure and maintain their benefits with ETF. Learn More
