What does attorneys Dell & Schaefer charge for the representation of disability insurance claimants?
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 following is a general summary of the attorney fee options we offer.
The three available fee options are a contingency fee agreement, hourly fee or fixed flat rate. The majority of our clients retain us on a contingency fee basis and it is our preferred method of working with clients. We want our clients to know that we have vested interest in them getting paid benefits every month. The contingency fee provides our clients with certainty and eliminates any concerns regarding unpredictable hourly attorney bills. The contingency fee means that we do not charge any attorney fees or costs unless we recover disability benefits. During a contingency fee agreement our clients are never required to come out of pocket with any money in order to hire us. If successful our attorney fee is calculated as a percentage of the monthly disability benefit that is collected by the client each month. The amount of the contingency fee percentage varies based upon the amount of the monthly benefit and the specific facts of each client’s claim.
Our hourly attorney fee ranges from $500 to $800 depending on the attorney working on the claim. We request an initial retainer and we bill our hourly clients every 30-45 days. Our hourly rate is billed in six minute increments and we provide an itemized statement every month which explains the work that has been performed. In most claims we are able to give our clients an accurate estimate as to the number of hours that will be involved. In cases that require the filing of a lawsuit we only offer a contingency fee agreement as the number of hours involved in litigation is unpredictable and usually cost prohibitive for our clients.
In certain circumstances such as an application, monthly claim handling or appeal of a claim denial we can offer a fixed flat rate. The fixed flat rates are different on every claim due to the different facts and circumstances of each claim. The fixed fee agreement requires a client to pay the full agreed upon attorney fee in advance.
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.

Reviews from Our Clients
Very satisfied with the work of this team. Took well care of my case and took all the necessary time to be responsive and attentive when I had questions. Guided me through recovery and returning to normalcy. All thanks to Jason & Tabitha, thank you!
I’m extremely satisfied with the experience I have had with this firm from day one. The lawyer who has handled my case, Alex, is very efficient and attentive to all my questions and concerns. They are always aware of how my case has gone and they care about my health. I feel optimistic with them because they are very attentive during the process of my claim. I would not hesitate to recommend families and friends if in any situation they need their services. Kathleen as well has been very well and assisted me with this case. I highly appreciate everything they have done for me.
It’s unfortunate when disability insurance companies come after older disabled policyholders just to help their bottom line. It can be a living nightmare the damage they can do to a family. Dell Disability Lawyers are polite, understanding and knowledgeable. They call you back and answer any question you have no matter how unimportant it can be. The amount of stress they took off of myself and family was incalculable. I recommend them highly to take care of any disability case whether it be filing for benefits or reversing a claim decision. They are outstanding.
I could not have been happier or more appreciative of the hard work they performed on my behalf. I was well briefed on my case and it was closed in a timely manner with a financially successful resolution.
Mr. Symonds and Sonia as well as everyone else we have worked with throughout this process have been very helpful, professional and caring to our situation. We are very thankful to have this great team on our side.
Without them my LTD company was dropping my plan with me still suffering from my accident, even with doctor’s statements I’m still disabled. The LTD company didn’t want to advance my policy to the next stage of years of pay. Dell Disability Lawyers saved my policy, and helped to enforce the LTD company’s own policy (for its policy holder, me) that I would be covered still under the LTD policy I had paid for at my previous job, when my accident occurred. These lawyers know what they are doing and can help you too. LTD companies will try to drop you when you still need coverage just because they don’t want to pay on your policy anymore. Don’t let them break contract with ya because they are trying to get out of it. Hit em with legal action to ensure the continuation of your policy you paid for. Dell Disability worked very well for me and continue to do so.
I was denied long term disability benefits from The Hartford after being on it for years. I found Dell Disability Lawyers after doing research online. In a matter of days they responded and explained to me everything that would be done. Dell Disability Lawyers were able to settle my suit against The Hartford very quickly and responded to me quickly. I would definitely recommend this team of lawyers for anyone that is fighting for their disability insurance.
I have had nothing but a great experience with Dell Disability Law Firm. Mr. Alex Palamara and his team went above and beyond my expectations. They will respond to emails and phone calls in a timely manner. Thank you once again for taking my case.
This law firm is the best so far. MetLife denied me two times, they appealed two times for me and they won of course. So if you are on disability and want a chance at winning your case use this firm Dell disability lawyers, kind courteous understanding and they get the job done. You won’t be disappointed.
