How do you decide which disability insurance law firm to trust with your long-term or short-term disability insurance problem?
Start by looking at how the law firm is recognized by other professionals.
Frankel & Newfield, P.C. enjoys an outstanding reputation among other lawyers, including our adversaries, members of the judiciary, and the in-house insurance companies we do battle with. We are regularly invited to speak at disability litigation conferences to share our knowledge, insight and experience in the long-term disability insurance claims arena.
Next, what kind of rankings does the firm enjoy? Both Justin Frankel and Jason Newfield are AV Rated Preeminent by Martindale Hubble, one of the first organizations to conduct and compile peer reviews of attorneys. Both partners have continued to be named to the New York Metro Area’s Super Lawyers lists, a very select list of attorneys.
Then look at online reviews, most notably, Avvo. Jason Newfield and Justin Frankel have received high marks from clients who posted these unsolicited reviews. Some of the descriptions: “Life Line,” “As Good As Promised,” “Got my disability claim approved after I gave up,” “Amazing attorney and wonderful staff.”
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™ 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 is a rating service that selects lawyers through the use of a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research, and every candidate is evaluated on twelve indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. 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.
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.
