Price McNamara began his law practice in 1990 representing insurance companies.
In 1995, Mr. McNamara founded McNamara Law Offices, where he represents people across the U.S. who are wrongfully denied long-term disability insurance, life insurance, and accidental death insurance benefits, with special focus on ERISA claims and lawsuits.
His is a member of the Louisiana and Texas Bars, with office locations by appointment only in Baton Rouge, Metairie, and Houston. He lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with his wife and their three children.
“Price showed no fear. The only thing I can use to actively describe what I saw that day in court was someone standing there protecting our family and fighting for them at the same time…he took control of the situation and was truthful.”
“It was a smooth process. I didn’t have to guess about what was going to happen next…I was reassured that he was going to do the right thing. I was reassured that he was looking out for me.”
“He was ready to fight for me…I felt like he had my best interest in mind. It wasn’t just for the paycheck at the end.”
“Price worked for an insurance company in the past and now he’s working against the insurance company so it was because of that we trusted that he knew how an insurance company worked and how to fight them.”
“I feel blessed that I can help turn things around for my clients who have been denied that piece of mind of financial stability and we make sure that the insurance company and the court realize that these are actual people, these are families that are suffering greatly.”

My client’s cause for an ERISA accidental death and dismemberment denial lawsuit began when both Esther and her husband were involved in a tragic head-on collision with an 18-wheeler. This tragic accident resulted in severe injuries to Esther, as well as David’s untimely death.
Our client, a young husband with two children, sustained closed-head brain injury as a result of an automobile accident. The at-fault driver’s insurance company initially refused to pay, but shortly before trial, agreed to pay the entirety of its insurance policy limits of $2,000,000.
Our client was a floor hand and Jones Act seaman who suffered a shoulder injury while working for Blake Offshore, LLC. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans. Blake and its insurance company offered relatively little in settlement, so the case proceeded to trial.
Our client sustained a fractured hip and reduced ability to earn wages in the future as a result of an accident sustained on the offshore drilling rig to which he was assigned. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans.

If your long-term disability benefits come through your employer, you might be able to file a lawsuit against the insurance company, after you have exhausted the administrative appeals process.

There are a variety of reasons why your claim for long-term disability may have been denied. One of the most common reasons is that your claim lacked sufficient medical documentation. The medical documentation must demonstrate that, due to a long-term illness or injury, you are not capable of working at your current job or at any job. Your file must contain all of the pertinent medical records, including radiology notes, physician reports, surgical reports, radiology notes, and emergency room documentation.
All of this documentation makes up the official “record” in your case, and the information contained therein is important – both for administrative appeal purposes and for potential future litigation purposes in federal court.
Depending upon your specific case and your insurance company, you might be eligible to appeal a claim denial one or two times. When your claim is denied (whether for the first or second time), the denial letter will set forth all deadlines with which you must comply to successfully appeal your case. Not filing your appeal in a timely manner is a surefire way to guarantee that it will be denied. An El Paso long-term disability appeals lawyer can ensure that your appeal is filed in a timely manner and that it contains the necessary documentation.
If you have been denied long-term disability benefits, time may be running out to appeal your case. Lawyer J. Price McNamara of the Law Offices of J.
