What are your fees?

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.

Dell & Schaefer Client Reviews   *****

Kelly B. (Nevada)

I had been on long term disability for over 10 years, with Aetna disability company. I had 3 heart surgeries in that time and some other pretty serious medical issues. I was very ill, during that time, seeing my physicians regularly and in and out of the hospital. It was very stressful keeping up with the vast amounts of paperwork, physicians attending statements, and communicating full time with the disability company.

One time, right before my open heart surgery, they stopped paying my claim for 4 months, for absolutely no reason. I did get that straightened out, eventually, but we were almost homeless, in the process. I decided to consider a buy out, on my disability claim and I wanted to use a large, reputable attorney’s firm, to handle this negotiation and contract. I called and talked to an attorney named Rachel Alters, who worked for Attorneys Dell & Schaefer. They had a very large attorneys practice and I was very comfortable using them.

She was very professional, but also really compassionate, about everything I had been through. I felt like she would really be someone I could trust. It turned out the gentleman she ended up talking to, from Aetna, was someone she knew from dealing with them in the past. This made everything go so much easier, I think, but either way, Rachel is wonderful! I would recommend her very highly, to anyone. She has my five star recommendation!
