Justin Frankel

Justin Frankel

Justin C. Frankel is committed to fighting for the rights of clients when their long term disability insurance claims have been denied, delayed or terminated. His clients praise him for understanding just how important their disability claims are for them and their families, and how his experience and knowledge allows them to put their lives back together. Mr. Frankel represents clients in ERISA appeals and administrative proceedings and in court at all levels of litigation: county, state and federal. He also represents owners of privately owned or individual long term disability insurance policy owners whose benefits have been terminated, delayed, denied, or who are being investigated by the insurance companies.
