Attorney Edward Dabdoub is a nationally recognized lawyer who has committed his legal practice to helping people successfully navigate disability insurance claims and receive fair benefits. He has handled cases in federal and state courts against insurance companies such as Aetna, Met Life, Mass Mutual, CIGNA/LINA, Lincoln Financial, and Prudential.
In some of his most notable federal court cases, Attorney Dabdoub represented a former NFL player who was not granted insurance benefits (Ashmore v.
