At Frankel & Newfield we understand that claiming the long-term disability benefits you deserve can be frustrating and time-consuming. In many cases, it may seem as though the scales are tipped in favor of the insurance companies. No matter what type of disability insurance dispute, Frankel & Newfield approaches all claims the same: aggressive representation to defend clients and fight for the claims they were promised in their insurance policies.

When possible, we will represent you in settling the case outside of court. This approach has benefits, including limiting the costs of continuing with litigation. It also prevents the court from getting involved in the minute details of your dispute. Settlement can also be beneficial as obligations under a settlement agreement are enforceable under the law, while the details of a contractual agreement are generally kept confidential between the parties involved.
