Welcome to My Blog
Let me introduce myself. I'm Marcus Castillo, an ERISA attorney with Haas-Castillo, P.A. in Clearwater, Florida. ERISA, for those of you who may not know, is the federal law governing most group employee benefits. It's sort of a stealth law in the sense that most folks don't know much about it and won't unless they lose those benefits. Trust me - when those benefits are lost ERISA becomes very relevant to the unfortunate victim. My job is to help clients recover the benefits that were wrongfuly denied them. This may require the filing of an ERISA lawsuit in Federal Court.
The mission of this web log aka blog is to be a resource regarding recent happenings in ERISA law as handed down in Florida and the Courts that govern Florida (including the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta as well as the U.S. Supreme Court). Since my practice is largely devoted to disability insurance claims I intend to pay particular attention to decisions in those type of cases.
I welcome all comments and look forward to hearing from you.
