Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

Very responsible, reliable, and efficient Attorney group. Everything with my disability insurance claim has been effectively done throughout the entire process. Working staff is courteous, responsive and prompt. I have been a client since 2005.

I would recommend any person who needs legal assistance without any reservation as I found this Attorney group most knowledgeable, efficient and trustful legal firm that would take care of problem with utmost sincerety and professionally.

What could we do to improve?
More advertising and greater public presence so that more people with a disability claim could learn about you and receive your assistance.

Muhammad I., MD

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

When I first learned of my disability I was very lucky to have gone to Dell and Schaefer right off the bat. I had heard how difficult it was to deal with the insurance companies, and quickly learned NOT to talk to them directly, as every bit of information they gleaned from you was often used to your disadvantage.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
My insurance carrier originally denied my claim. But because of Dell’s extremely competent involvement (I think brilliance), my claim was granted.

Joel R., MD

I was referred to Steven Dell at a very challenging time in my life and he and his firm were very kind and considerate in handling my case and bringing it to a positive result. I will always be thankful to Steven and Greg Dell for their help in my situation.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
Their caring and professionalism is tough to beat.

Robert H.

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

I was understandably distressed when I was informed that CIGNA had terminated my disability benefits after ten years of payments. Their rational was that I was not bipolar even though I had lost my position as a partner in a national law firm due to bipolar disease, I was not in fact bipolar. I went on line and very quickly found that D&S had a sterling reputation. They really took me by the hand and guided me through the ERISA appeal process. They carefully explained everything. Not only was I treated in a professional manner; I truly felt that these people sensed my fear and pain, and were committed to doing justice.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
Because they are very good at what they do, and very sympathetic in the way they do it.

What could we do to improve?
Shoot all the insurance execs. Seriously, fight to hold the insurers more accountable. For example, when an insured can make a prima facie case that he has been denied or terminated in bad faith, there should be a range of 100% to 300% attorneys fee awards as penalties.

James P., ESQ.

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

Prior to hiring Dell & Schaefer I was represented by a different law firm that was handling my disability claim. An alleged problem with my disability claim arose and my lawyer at the time scared me so much. A close friend recommended that I immediately speak with Dell and Schaefer, which I did. They were amazing in their approach, explained how there was no problem at all with my situation and took care of it within a week. They have been my attorney now for the past 7 years and have handled any situations or questions so professionally and quickly.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
It makes a big difference using experienced disability attorneys as Dell and Schaefer who only handle this type of law and get the attention and respect of the insurance companies.

What could we do to improve?
nothing.

Lee G.

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

It was bad enough not being able to work and having health problems but then having the insurance company question me and stop my disability benefits was too much. Greg Dell did a good job of fighting them and all of the delay tactics they had. We prevailed following the filing of a lawsuit and now I can move on with life. My disability benefits were reinstated and I have continued to be paid. The insurance company sucks and it sucks that I needed a great hired gun like Greg to make those asshole robbers give me my money.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
They get the job done.

What could we do to improve?
Send out bottles of wine for the holidays!

Barry D., DC

Attorney Stephen JessupAttorney Stephen Jessup worked on this case

My attorney Stephen Jessup guided me through the disability process simplifying it when possible. He remains actively involved even though my benefits have been approved.

Would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
Absolutely without reservation.

P.A.

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

Dell & Schaefer has been a huge asset to have on my side! They have been extremely professional, knowledgeable and helpful. I certainly would not want to navigate the disability claim process without them working on my behalf. They lifted a huge load off of my shoulders while I was going through a very stressful and critical period, and worked hard to ensure that my rights under the disability policy were protected. They worked diligently to protect my interests, something the disability carriers will not do!

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
They are professional, hard working, and most importantly, extremely knowledgeable of the disability claims process.

Kevin S., MD

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

Always responsive, always effective. Dell & Schaefer is second to none.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
Because they are efficient, effective and get the job done.

Amy S., PhD

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

I was very fortunate to have found Dell & Schaefer. It made things so bearable while I was going thru so much stress and pain with my RA. They were there and still are every step of the way. Dell & Schaefer put 100% and then some into my case. I waited approx. 6 months following my initial disability claim denial and when all was finalized Dell & Schaefer won my appeal. I felt like Dell & Schaefer treated me like a family member. They don’t just see you as a case number, they actually treat you like someone they know.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
I would recommend Dell & Schaefer because they put their all into getting your case getting settled fast and efficient. They take away the stress of having to deal with so much paper work that is required to receive disability. It gives you time to focus on you and coming to terms with your life changes.

What could we do to improve?
I can’t think of anything that needs to be improved. I have had Dell & Schaefer since 2003 & in this time I can’t find one thing I would change.

Patricia A.

Attorney Rachel AltersAttorney Rachel Alters worked on this case

I was thoroughly pleased with the assistance Mrs. Rachel Alters provided on my disability case. Mrs. Alters possessed the knowledge and skills on disability laws which allowed her to win my case for me. I am thankful for her help and I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking assistance with disability insurance claims.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
Because the attorneys at Dell & Schaefer care about their clients and believe in assisting them to obtain the information they need to successfully win their cases.

What could we do to improve?
I think if the clients were able to meet face to face with the attorneys initially it would provide a better sense of knowing that the attorneys have their best interest in mind when they take on their case.

Carolyn T.

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

I have enjoyed my working experience with the firm of Dell & Schaefer. Specifically; upon becoming my Attorney, Greg Dell carefully managed all aspects of my case. He took the time to keep me both informed and calm as we navigated the sometimes difficult waters that led to my long term disability claim being approved. In the five years since my application Greg has expediently handled all of the inquiries made by my disability carrier. I feel confident going forward that Greg will ensure that I receive all the benefits to which I am entitled.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
I highly recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer because of their high level of competency and service that they have provided for me. I am glad that they are on my team.

What could we do to improve?
Not much.

John P., MD

Attorney Alex PalamaraAttorney Alex Palamara worked on this case

You guys were great with getting my checks out to me and so forth. The amount that was quoted was true. Everyone was very professional.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
If someone out there is having a problem with getting what they should be.

Debbie C.

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

I have had a great experience working with Dell & Schaefer. They have always responded to my inquires in a timely manner and have always achieved positive results with my claim.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
I would recommend Dell & Schaefer to any disability claimant because they are serious and efficient in their handling of all the insurance companies paperwork. They won’t let the insurance carriers bully or intimidate their disabled clients and that is the most important point in hiring an attorney to represent you in these matters.

What could we do to improve?
I am a satisfied client since March of 2008 and I have no complaints at this time.

Mike W.

My experience has been very positive since Dell & Schaefer have been handling my case. I have met personally with Mr. Dell who always is available to talk with me and address my concerns and questions, the support staff treat me as if I were a family member, in a caring manner while performing at an outstanding professional manner. I highly recommend this firm, and would gladly speak to any future clients if they have questions.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
I would refer anyone to retain their services because I feel at ease and peace of mind in feeling that I am in good hands. They have the knowledge base and know the law as it relates to a chronic illness.

Sharon M.

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

Before I retained Attorneys Dell and Schaefer, I was very intimidated by my disability insurance carrier. You feel like you are committing fraud by the way the insurance company talk and communicate with you. So I decided to contact Attorney Greg Dell and he was so cordial and very professional to explain to me the whole process. It is important to have legal advice when dealing with these disability insurance companies. I’ m so thankful to have retained Atty Dell and Schaefer to represent me. You feel like someone is working for you. All my anxiety and worries in dealing with my disability company are gone.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
You want a law firm with experience and expertise in disability claims. And by what I have seen, Dell and Schaefer is the that law firm.

What could we do to improve?
Nothing.

Delano Q., MD

Attorney Stephen JessupAttorney Stephen Jessup worked on this case

I was referred to Dell & Schaefer thru a network group of top clinicians who gave them a very positive recommendation. I was not disappointed. Dell and Schaefer’s organization, confidence and direction proved invaluable during a very frustrating and emotional period. We were fortunate to get them onboard at onset of my medical problems, and their help was pivotal as the demands of my illness and the claims procedure became very challenging. I can’t say enough positive things about Stephen Jessup, Greg Dell and the many valuable members of their team. They possess unique knowledge and experience critical for success in this field, and demonstrate a sincere commitment to success for their client. These are highly skilled professionals who provided outstanding guidance and personal support through the processing and management of my professional disability insurance claim.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
I have every confidence that Dell and Schaefer are simply the best at what they do. I sincerely doubt you could find any better representation for a professional disability claim.

Bert M., DDS

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

I have worked for AT&T for 41 years and have never had a disability claim. I woke up one morning in severe pain and to make a long story short I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis in my neck. AT&T and Sedgwick Claims Management Services denied my claim until Gregory Dell took over my claim and eventually I was paid for six months after he won my Appeal. I was immediately denied again by Sedgwick following an IME exam. Without the help of Gregory Dell and his associates I don’t know what I would have done. AT&T’s claims management company Sedgwick tries to scare you into coming back to work and jeopardize your health. Dell & Schaefer lawyers know what to do and let you concentrate on working on your health problems. I feel lucky to have Gregory fighting for my disability benefits.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
They get results along with being caring.

Nancy R.

My experience with Dell and Schaefer has been excellent. Courteous, prompt attention and questions answered precisely. Organized and efficient.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
Experience and knowledge.

Marc F., DDS

Attorney Stephen JessupAttorney Stephen Jessup worked on this case

The firm, and especially Danielle and attorney Stephen Jessup, were prompt in replying and responding by e-mail and phone calls to my questions regarding my case. They were empathetic to my conditions and situations. They worked hard to develop a full and complete case for review. They helped me to achieve a lump sum settlement through Mediation. I am pleased with their work on my behalf.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
Attorney worked very hard on my behalf. Help will be required to obtain any ERISA disability benefit.

Susan D.

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

My chronic health problems had progressed to the point that it was impossible for me to continue practicing my specialty as an obstetrician and gynecologist. With my physician’s support and excellent own occupation professional disability insurance policies I began the application process solo and with confidence that approval would be easy. After several months of endless and confusing demands for documents, files, records and reports by the insurance carriers I was in a panic over the realization that I was in over my head and that my entire financial future could be ruined by mistakes on my part during the application process. Having seen ads by Dell and Schaefer, I contacted them on-line with a summary of my situation. A phone call was received from Gregory Dell within hours of submitting the on-line inquiry. His competence and knowledge was immediately apparent and reassuring. After a thorough discussion of my case I could not copy the files fast enough to get them to his office and in his capable hands. End of the story is that the results were much better than I could have imagined. Money is not one of my problems.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
I had briefly spoken with three different attorneys who all were supposed to be experienced with disability claims prior to starting my application process. None of them seemed to know anything about the various steps involved or could provide any usable advice. Dell and Schaefer demonstrated a complete understanding of every aspect of disability insurance. I continue to be most impressed by their immediate response to any and every question, email, or phone call that I make to them.

What could we do to improve?
They don’t work cheap. However, in fairness, you get what you pay for.

Louis P., MD

I first tried to work with Insurance Company that I had the Policy with for over ten years. They blocked every way they could to stop me from getting my benefits. Attorney Steven Dell and his Firm helped me from day one and in a very short time guided me through the mess and I started to receive my benefits. I’ve been with Dell & Schaefer for two and half years and they continue to help and support me when the Insurance Company starts to try and stop the payments to me.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
They are there when you need them and always answer your calls and questions.

What could we do to improve?
Not one thing.

Alan R.

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

“Invaluabe!” Without the experience and expertise, not only would my disability benefits been delayed but the difficulties navigating the continued process would have caused additional delays. Dell & Schaefer has proven to me the importance and value, beyond a shadow of doubt, of an experienced, qualified and meticulous legal representation such as that provided by Dell & Schaefer.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
Absolutely!

What could we do to improve?
Continue to do what you are doing and listen to the feedback provided clients like myself.

Brad H., MD

Hearing from your doctor that you are no longer healthy enough to work was one of the most difficult days of my life. Dell & Schaefer helped me navigate through the challenging process of collecting disability benefits. They allowed me to focus on my health while they took care of my financial concerns. I simply was not well enough to fight with the insurance company myself and it was such a relief knowing that they were fighting for me.

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
They were professional, genuinely concerned, easy to communicate with, and above all great at what they do.

Andrea L.

Attorney Alex PalamaraAttorney Alex Palamara worked on this case

Everything went very smooth, all done in less than 2 weeks. I no longer have Cigna’s B.S. in my life. What a relief!

Why would you recommend Attorneys Dell & Schaefer?
Not many law firms handle lump sum offers for long term disability.

Leon

Attorney Gregory DellAttorney Gregory Dell worked on this case

Dell and Schaefer were the only attorneys that were willing to fight my case with the Reliance Standard disability insurance company. They took a chance even though I had already been rejected by Reliance. They won my case and have helped me to survive through several serious illnesses. They are always quick to respond when there is a question or problem and they are still fighting for me against all odds.

What could we do to improve?
I don’t really know what more you can do just keep fighting for the working man.

James M.

Attorney Alex PalamaraAttorney Alex Palamara worked on this case

A very effective and professional law firm who believes in being dedicated to their clients. Dell & Schaefer are committed to getting the job done with a successful ending.

Tim T.

Attorney Stephen JessupAttorney Stephen Jessup worked on this case

I found Mr. Stephen Jessup of Dell & Schaefer to be friendly, knowledgeable, responsive and unfailingly professional. I received a settlement and everything was completed within the time frame discussed. For these reasons I highly recommend Mr. Jessup for professional services.
