Corinne Chandler

Corinne Chandler is a Senior Partner with Kantor & Kantor. She has vast professional experience in the field of disability. She joined Kantor & Kantor LLP when it was started in 2004. Corinne accepts and has represented many clients who have been declined disability, life and long-term care benefits by insurance carriers. She has been practicing in the ERISA disability area since 1995 and enjoys being an advocate for individuals who have been wrongfully denied disability benefits.

Before joining Kantor & Kantor LLP, Corinne was a partner at both Adams, Duque & Hazeltine and Seyfarth, Shaw. While she was employed with those firms, Corinne frequently represented many disability carriers to defend benefit claims. After 18 years of investing her practice of representing carriers, Corinne make the decision to “switch sides” and has now devoted her practice and focus to exclusively to representing individuals in recovering their benefits.

Corinne grew up in Southern California and currently lives in Pasadena with her husband. She and her husband have raised two children together, who also live in Southern California. When she has free time, she is found enjoying time spent with family as well as biking.
