We are not your typical law firm. We are always thinking outside of the box so that we can keep our clients a step ahead of the insurance companies. Customer service with our clients is an essential element as we want every case handled as if it was our own. Since the lawyer that you work with at our firm will need to know a lot about your life, we think it is important that you have the opportunity to learn more about the lawyer(s) working on your case. Here are some interesting and fun facts about Jay Symonds:
Jay is a 1997 cum laude graduate from New England Law and received his undergraduate degree in 1991 from Bentley University, where he received a B.S. in Finance. Jay spent the first part of his career gaining invaluable experience serving as in-house and outside counsel for several prominent U.S. Disability Insurance carriers. As legal counsel for insurance carriers he managed lawsuits nationwide involving insured and reinsured group life and disability plans under ERISA. Jay’s expertise with disability insurance matters was used to provide training and risk assessment to disability claims and appeals units regarding administrative services and proper claims practices, procedures and investigations. Today, Jay uses his experience to help claimants who are unfairly denied employee benefits from insurance carriers including disability and life insurance benefits under the federal ERISA statute.
Yes. We are a national disability insurance law firm that is available to represent you regardless of where you live in the United States. We have partner lawyers in every state and we have filed lawsuits in most federal courts nationwide. Our disability lawyers represent disability claimants at all stages of a claim for disability insurance benefits. There is nothing that our lawyers have not seen in the disability insurance world.
Since we represent disability insurance claimants at different stages of a disability insurance claim we offer a variety of different fee options. We understand that claimants living on disability insurance benefits have a limited source of income; therefore we always try to work with the claimant to make our attorney fees as affordable as possible.
The three available fee options are a contingency fee agreement (no attorney fee or cost unless we make a recovery), hourly fee or fixed flat rate.
In every case we provide each client with a written fee agreement detailing the terms and conditions. We always offer a free initial phone consultation and we appreciate the opportunity to work with you in obtaining payment of your disability insurance benefits.
No. For purposes of efficiency and to reduce expenses for our clients we have found that 99% of our clients prefer to communicate via telephone, e-mail, fax, GoToMeeting.com sessions, or Skype. If you prefer an initial in-person meeting please let us know. A disability company will never require you to come to their office and similarly we are set up so that we handle your entire claim without the need for you to come to our office.
When you call us during normal business hours you will immediately speak with a disability attorney. We can be reached at 800-682-8331 or by email. Lawyer and staff must return all client calls same day. Client emails are usually replied to within the same business day and seem to be the preferred and most efficient method of communication for most clients.
You are very kind and I am grateful to you and Greg and the work you do to help me rest. Thank you so very much. I know words are often just words and can be cheap but I truly feel a since of gratitude and would like you both to know you make a positive difference for those much to broken to stand up for themselves even though they may have once been very capable.
We all have to be grateful for our good days as there is no promises in this life, something I never understood prior to a couple years back. Your work is the work of an angel to protect those less fortunate and you should be proud in each moment of your career. I am proud of you and Greg. Thank you.
