Attorney Eva Cantarella

About Me

I am our law firm's lead pension attorney, and have been prosecuting pension claims for participants and their beneficiaries for well over 20 years, including 14 class claims for pension benefits. Along with my partners, we have recovered over $120 million in pension benefits for over 25,000 participants and their beneficiaries. Although our firm is based in Michigan, we have a national pension practice and will accept any viable pension claim, regardless of where the parties reside or do business. I also donate hundreds of hours of my time each year providing free pension consultations to individuals with pension questions. In addition, I have presented on pension issues in numerous venues, including giving testimony in Washington DC to the U.S. Dept. of Treasury. Most recently, Lawyers Monthly awarded me its Pension Lawyer the Year USA award. For more info about me: Google "Eva Cantarella pension lawyer" or go to my "Pension Justice 4 You" Facebook Page.
