Eve-Lynn Gisonni practices disability and life insurance law with the goal of evening the playing field in the turbulent insurance arena that pits consumer against insurance company. She is a compassionate advocate for disabled professionals stripped of their livelihoods and who are victimized by unfair insurance company tactics and refusals to pay contractually-promised disability benefits.
Practicing under her time-tested philosophy that small firms can do great things, Eve-Lynn’s tenacious spirit is epitomized by her successful bid before the New York Court of Appeals in Benesowitz v. MetLife to stop group disability insurers from refusing to pay pre-existing condition claims. As a result, insurance regulators ordered New York insurers to change the way they were doing business.
With offices in Manhattan and Long Island, Ms. Gisonni litigates in state and federal trial and appellate forums and is a distinguished attorney who employs creative strategies to succeed on behalf of claimants under individual and group disability and life insurance contracts.
