Representing clients throughout the state, she focuses her practice on fighting for their rights to recover insurance benefits when their insurance claims have been denied, including claims regarding life insurance, long-term care, health insurance, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 and long-term disability.

She is an inactive member of the Illinois State Bar Association.

Ms. Chandler has litigated more than 500 cases involving disability, life insurance and long-term care insurance claims, winning the recovery of insurance benefits for many clients over her years of practice.
