Employee Benefits

Protecting the Rights of Employers and Employees


At the law office of McChesney & Dale, P.C., we bring considerable experience to individuals and businesses in matters involving pensions and other employee benefits. We have handled ERISA claims since the law was enacted in 1974. We have extensive research capabilities and contacts, and can help you find solutions to any employee benefits issue, regardless how simple or complex.

We keep our firm small and our overhead low, so that we can provide a high level of service at reasonable rates.

Our Employee Benefits Practice


We provide comprehensive counsel to employers and employees regarding a broad range of benefits plans, from long term disability issues to pension or health benefits disputes. We have extensive experience handling disability claims under ERISA, as well as non-ERISA long term disability claims.


We will work with employers from the inception of an employee benefit plan, helping you set up and/or monitor a wide range of programs, including:

  • Pension or deferred compensation plans
  • 401(k) plans
  • Health plans

We provide a full range of services to employers and employee benefits administrators, helping you appropriately respond to any employee concerns, including issues that arise upon the termination or severance of an employment relationship. If a dispute cannot be resolved through negotiation, we will aggressively protect your interests in litigation.


Among the many clients we have represented for nearly 40 years are Taft-Hartley trust funds, established by collective bargaining agreements to administer employee benefits equally between labor and management.


We also represent employees in legal actions to recover benefits that have been inappropriately denied. ERISA litigation presents numerous potential procedural pitfalls with which a general practitioner is usually not familiar.


Because we have handled the defense of these types of claims for years, we know how to anticipate the arguments companies or administrators will make.
