Cesar Gavidia is a Partner in the Disability Income Division of Dell & Schaefer. Throughout his career, Cesar has helped thousands of disability claimants to recover millions of dollars in short and long term disability benefits. Cesar focuses his legal practice in representing claimants at all stages of a claim for individual or group (ERISA) long-term disability benefits including applications, ERISA appeals, ERISA litigation, ERISA exempt disability claims and lump-sum policy buyouts. He has assisted disabled claimants in nearly every state in the country and in all occupations including teachers, surgeons, dentists, chiropractors, lawyers, judges, corporate executives, software engineers, and even disability insurance claim representatives. Cesar has litigated disability lawsuits against every major disability insurance company and has gained internal knowledge about their internal claims handling processes through extensive litigation. There are very few lawyers in the country that have as much disability insurance claim handling and litigation experience as Cesar.

Cesar’s interest in disability insurance law began in law school, which is where he was first introduced to the complex federal law, ERISA, which governs most claims arising from employer sponsored long-term disability insurance plans. Cesar began working as a law clerk with Attorneys Dell & Schaefer in 2003. Upon law school graduation Cesar joined the disability income division of our firm and has focused his entire legal career on obtaining disability insurance benefits for his clients.

Cesar earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from Florida State University and a law degree from St. Thomas University School of Law. Cesar is admitted in the State Bars of Florida and California as well as multiple federal district courts throughout the nation. Cesar represents claimants throughout the nation and has established a reputation for being an aggressive advocate for his clients. Cesar can be reached via email at

  • What do I like about my job: Often, when people contact us they have been sparring alone with the insurance company, they are beaten up, weathered and don’t know where else to turn. I enjoy the ability to then counsel these people, instill in them renewed confidence and provide them with that second wind that they need to recover what is rightfully theirs. To know that I have helped someone turn a situation which at some point looked grim, into something positive is the most rewarding aspect of my job.
