About Roberts Disability Law

At Roberts Disability Law, we fight vigorously on behalf of clients who have been wrongfully denied short- and long-term disability, life, and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance benefits.

Unlike many attorneys who fall into their area of practice after years of “figuring it out,” Michelle started law school knowing that she wanted to help employees. Her personal story reflects her genuine desire to help people who are at a disadvantage compared to powerful insurance companies. Over the years, courts have interpreted the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) law in a way that makes winning for claimants an uphill battle. Michelle’s zeal for helping employees and insureds created the foundation for her life’s work of advocating for people in their ERISA benefit claims. After more than fifteen years of being in the trenches and gaining insight into how businesses approach the ERISA claims process, Michelle has earned her reputation as a formidable opponent to insurance companies and claims administrators.

Roberts Disability Law is proud to be a woman- and minority-owned business.

Fighting for the Underdog

The theme of my life has been a determination to fight for the underdog. My work is a natural extension of that theme and fulfills me every day. I value hard work above most other things in my life. I often find myself preoccupied with how to fix a client’s problem or how to fix ERISA on a larger scale. Helping clients with disabilities became a personal mission of mine after seeing my father, a disabled veteran, struggle to work and support his family while dealing with the consequences of debilitating medical conditions. I like to think I got from him my strong work ethic, compassion, and desire to serve. I also value taking advantage of every opportunity for personal growth and am always looking for a way to become a better person. Running a business and raising children in a busy city is all consuming, but I am as happy as I’ve ever been, and wouldn’t have it any other way. For fun and relaxation, I enjoy the ritual of Peloton or a hike in the mornings so that I can start work with a clear head and ready to face the challenges that may lie ahead. I also try to practice mindfulness throughout the day, which helps me stay calm in stressful situations. At the end of the day, I enjoy listening to music on Spotify, a book on Audible, or a podcast. In addition to fighting for my clients, I volunteer with the Federal Bar Association, the Legal Aid at Work Workers’ Rights Clinic, and the AIDS Legal Referral Panel. I hope to show my kids by example that giving to others is the best way to lead a life of fulfillment.
