A credit to his profession
“Unlike most lawyers I interviewed, Justin’s approach to explain and make sure I understood the process really helped; others didn’t give me the time of day and just wanted me to sign a hefty retainer agreement. Justin hung in there with me and resolved my disability issue.” Joseph

Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™

Peer Review

Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ are considered the gold standard in attorney ratings. Martindale has recognized lawyers for their strong legal ability and high ethical standards for more than a century. Attorneys and individuals researching lawyers for their legal needs use these ratings to identify, evaluate and select the most appropriate lawyer for their legal issue. We are especially pleased to have achieved this highest rating from Martindale because it provides the perspective of peers and clients. The peer review ratings, combined with client reviews, deliver a comprehensive view of the attorney’s legal abilities.

Super Lawyers

Super Lawyers is a rating service that selects lawyers through the use of a patented multiphase selection process.

The goal of Super Lawyers is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for both attorneys and consumers searching for legal representation. Justin Frankel and Jason Newfield are proud to have achieved this distinction.

Avvo is a relatively recent addition to the lawyer ratings universe. Founded in Seattle by a tech-savvy attorney, Avvo was created to make finding a good lawyer easier. Today, it is a robust platform that is used by clients who share their experience with attorneys, with nearly 97% of all U.S. licensed attorneys listed on the site, along with detailed profiles, client reviews and the Avvo Rating.

One more thing about Frankel & Newfield we think you should know:

Our firm is deliberately small, because we believe that our clients deserve the hands-on approach that only comes from working closely with one attorney and one paralegal. Your family depends on you – we know that your disability case depends on us. We take that responsibility very seriously.

When the firm was founded, we made a conscious decision to stay this size, so we could work closely with clients in a highly personal approach to law. No, we’re not a giant firm with hundreds of associates and thousands of clients. We chose not to go that route – and we believed that enough people would agree with us to keep our firm thriving.

We’re happy to report that our firm continues to thrive, as we serve clients who share our values and put their faith in our experience and skills.

If you have a question about your disability insurance matter, call us. We look forward to speaking or meeting you.
