The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, commonly called ERISA, is a federal law regarding employee’s rights to their employment benefits, such as disability insurance, health insurance, life insurance and more. The attorneys at O'Brien & Marquard, P.L.C. fight for your rights to employer-provided benefits covered by ERISA. Since the founding of our firm, we’ve used our experience and knowledge to aggressively represent individuals in obtaining the benefits they need and deserve.
Many employer-provided benefits are covered by ERISA, including:
