Mr. Hellen has very extensive experience in his two areas of specialization. With respect to disability and medical (health) benefit claims, he has successfully represented over 100 clients in both informal claims negotiations/settlements and in federal court litigation and appeals to the Ninth Circuit Court. He has had cases published in the Official Reporters due to their importance in assisting plaintiffs wrongfully denied these benefits, as well as in changing the law in favor of group disability insurance claimants. Mr. Hellen is a member of the Patient Advocate Foundation, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, and the National Fibromyalgia Association.

Mr. Hellen's other main specialty is in the field of Estates and Trusts, where he has assisted a very large number of clients on issues from advice and consultation through drafting of all required estate documents, as well as later on, through handling Probate Court matters involving Wills and Trust Administration.
