How to Find a Disability Insurance Lawyer on the Internet


Friday, January 11th, 2019

Finding a disability insurance lawyer on the internet can be overwhelming. Where there used to be three or four law firms that focused in this area of the law, today there are hundreds claiming to know what is best for you and your family. How can you decide which one to work with your disability insurance claim?

Frankel & Newfield has been helping people with long term disability and short-term disability claims since the firm was founded in 2004. Before that, partners Justin Frankel and Jason Newfield were associated with another disability insurance law firm. They have dedicated their careers to representing claimants in disability insurance matters.

How does that help you in deciding who to use to handle your claim?

Disability law is a complex combination of insurance law, contracts law, health law and employee benefits law. Without experience, even insurance lawyers run into trouble handling their own claims. We know, because we represent many of them.

So you need to start with a law firm with a great deal of experience in this specific are.

Next, check the attorney’s credentials.

  • Do they have a Preeminent rating from Martindale? That is one of the lawyer’s most prestigious credentials.
  • Have they been named to Super Lawyers? That’s another important credential. Both Martindale and Super Lawyers are unpaid, independent rankings.
  • What kind of reviews do they have on Avvo? This website is relatively new, compared to Martindale, but it has become a powerhouse in giving clients the ability to express their opinions on attorneys.

Justin Frankel and Jason Newfield both earned these credentials. Perhaps what matters more to them, however, are the sentiments expressed by this disability insurance claim client on Avvo:

Justin helped me get my benefits after a career ending injury

I was referred to Justin by my insurance broker after I had an incident which resulted in my disability. He was a consummate professional and carefully reviewed with the disability claim process. He progressively defended my rights and stood up to the insurance company when it was necessary to do so. He is also always available and responds to emails and calls very promptly, which has made working with him very easy and stress free. Most importantly, he was successful in obtaining benefits for me. If you are on disability, especially if you are a professional/own occupation/higher claim value, you owe it to yourself to get representation and I could not recommend anyone higher than Justin.
