Edward DabdoubFounding Attorney
The firm is led by nationally-known disability lawyer, Edward Dabdoub. Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, he is one of five attorneys in his immediate family. Since becoming a lawyer, he has focused his law practice on representing people who are entitled to disability benefits from insurance companies.
Eddie's passion for helping people with disability insurance claims started when he was in law school. As a law student, Eddie helped a man suffering from chronic pain get back his long term disability benefits after his insurance company wrongly terminated payments, even though he was still disabled. After handling that case, he decided to dedicate his legal career to holding disability insurance companies accountable, and he built the Dabdoub Law Firm for that purpose.
Eddie represents clients at all stages of a disability insurance claim. He has extensive knowledge of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”) since many of his clients’ long term disability cases are governed by the federal statute. He has experience litigating disability cases in federal and state courts against all major disability insurance companies, including Aetna, UNUM, Hartford, CIGNA or Life Insurance Company of North America (LINA), Mass Mutual, Liberty Life, Met Life, Lincoln Financial, and Prudential.
He has participated as a guest speaker at law conferences both on local and national stages, discussing disability insurance benefits and ERISA for legal organizations such as the American Association for Justice and the Florida Association for Justice. He has authored articles on disability insurance and advises other lawyers on disability insurance and ERISA matters.
Eddie graduated cum laude honors from the University of Miami School of Law. While at law school, he was the recipient of the Ambassador Sue Cobb Scholarship. Before attending law school, he graduated at the top of his class from Florida International University, earning a Masters in Business Administration, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Miami.
