Edward graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Florida, with honors, in 1993, and he received his juris doctor from the Boston College School of Law in 1997. Mr. Doskey began practicing law in Coral Gables with the law firm of Sugarman & Susskind in 1997 where he began his experience as an ERISA and wage and hour Trial lawyer. Before joining this law firm, Edward was a partner at Matusek, McKnight, Poluse, Cangro and Doskey, P.A., in St. Petersburg, Florida where he did workers’ compensation insurance defense and claimants’ litigation and began his own Social Security claimants practice.

Disability Insurance Law: Long Term Disability, Short Term Disability, ERISA

Why You Need Disability Attorney, Edward Doskey Experience.  Ed Doskey can help you navigate the minefield of loopholes, exclusions and excuses used to deny valid claims for benefits. He is familiar with the fine print in disability insurance policies and the tactics the insurance companies use to deny valid claims. If your claim is denied Mr. Doskey has the experience needed to handle the appeal process, and, if necessary, to sue the insurance company to obtain benefits.

It is very important to refer to your insurance policy or plan to see just how disability is defined.
