Since our establishment in 1979, the law firm of Attorneys Dell & Schaefer, Chartered, has represented thousands of clients with their claims against insurance companies. The disability income division of Dell & Schaefer, led by managing partner Gregory Michael Dell, focuses exclusively on the representation of long term disability insurance claimants in both private policy and group disability (ERISA) claims.
We represent individuals at all stages of a claim for disability income benefits, which includes the application for benefits process, denial of benefits, lawsuits to recover disability benefits and lump sum policy buyouts for individuals that are currently being paid disability income benefits. We only represent claimants and we never represent insurance companies.
Our law firm represents disability insurance claimants throughout the nation and we have handled cases in almost every state. Dell & Schaefer has earned the “AV” professional peer review rating by Martindale Hubbell, the highest qualification rating a law firm can receive. Attorney Gregory Dell is the author of a long-term disability insurance law book published by Thomson Reuters, which is a legal reference for attorneys and judges. We have handled numerous cases both in and out of court against every major disability insurance company and are familiar with all their tactics.
Through years of battling the disability insurance companies we have earned our reputation as aggressive and skilled attorneys that have the proven ability to prosecute a disability case from start to finish. Our job is to hold the disability insurance companies accountable for their actions and enforce the contractual rights of our clients. We understand that a significant portion of your financial future is dependent on our legal representation.
On every case we handle we believe in a team approach, which means that your case will be assigned to two disability lawyers and a paralegal. Long-term disability cases are challenging, and we believe it is important for your case to have input from multiple Dell & Schaefer attorneys.
Most disability insurance policies contain complex and confusing contractual language. Our knowledge, skill and experience have allowed us to battle the insurance carriers and obtain disability benefits for our clients. We encourage you to contact our law firm for a free evaluation of your claim for disability income benefits.

Our law firm is continually striving to provide prompt and efficient legal services for our clients. We engage in regular phone conferences with our clients and utilize technology such as www.gotoMeeting.com in order to review and discuss any documents.

All aspects of the relationship we share with our clients are confidential. From our client’s first inquiry forward, we share a confidential and fiduciary union. However, we have numerous disability clients that have consented to the release of their names and have agreed to speak with potential clients.
We suggest you request this information, which is updated regularly, to familiarize yourself with the disability claim process from the claimant’s point of view and to question other individuals with reference to our firm’s services and performance.
Co-Counsel & Referrals

We are licensed to practice in Federal Court throughout the country and upon motion and approval by the local court, we will work as consulting trial counsel in any state or Federal court. Due to the diversity of citizenship and the amount in controversy, most cases are handled in federal court. Attorneys Dell & Schaefer welcome the opportunity to work with co-counsel and continue to protect the rights of insured’s that have been wrongfully denied disability insurance benefits.
