FAQ

Do you work in my state?

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.

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.

Do I have to come to your office to work with your law firm?

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.

How can I contact you?

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.

Dell & Schaefer Client Reviews   *****

H. W.

When I first called Dell & Schaefer from half way across the country, Steven Dell called me backed and he took my case very seriously and acted quickly to help me apply for benefits. His work got me the benefits I deserved. When I stopped getting benefits because the insurance company thought they no longer had to pay them, Steven Dell appealed the decision in a timely fashion all the while reassuring me as I panicked. His knowledge of the law and of my policy made my appeal very strong.

When they denied my appeal he was immediately on the phone with the attorneys for the insurance company and with very strong arguments, he negotiated a significant settlement for me. All during this time he responded to my emails and phone calls in a timely fashion and he was able to reassure me regarding the time that the process took. His staff was also very pleasant and helpful, especially Merlin.

I have really come to respect Steven Dell’s abilities and his integrity. My only regret is that I have never met him in person and have not been able to shake his hand and thank him for all he has done for me.
