Gregory Dell received his B.S./B.A. in Accounting at Washington University in St. Louis and his J.D. from Benjamin Cardozo School of Law in New York City. Following law school, Mr. Dell spent several years developing his trial skills as an Assistant State Attorney in Broward County Florida, where he handled thousands of criminal cases and participated in more than 50 jury trials.
After joining Dell & Schaefer, Mr. Dell easily transitioned into the civil arena and dedicated his legal career to fighting for the rights of individuals against insurance companies. He has litigated against every major disability insurance company throughout the country. In 2006, Mr. Dell was selected by the nation's largest legal publication company (Thomson Reuters) to author a treatise on long-term disability insurance law. The book is published each year and is intended to be used as an authoritative source on disability insurance law by attorneys and judges. Mr. Dell's articles on long-term disability benefits have appeared in nationwide publications. Mr. Dell has received recognition from Superlawyers and Best Lawyers in the field of Insurance Law and Employee benefits. Mr. Dell lectures nationwide on the topic of disability insurance law.
Mr. Dell is admitted to the Florida, District of Colombia, Massachusetts, Texas, and New York State Bar Associations, as well as multiple federal district courts throughout the nation.

Mr. Dell is the founder of the Attorneys Dell & Schaefer Charitable Foundation, a not for profit organization which was formed to promote health and safety in our communities to improve lives of individuals.
Outside the practice of law, Mr. Dell is a husband and father of three boys. Mr. Dell believes that exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, and while some may say he takes exercise to an extreme, his dedication and commitment is demonstrated by his completion of the Ironman Florida triathlon, 5 Half-Ironman triathlons, and multiple marathons including New York City, Chicago and San Diego.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Gregory’s comment: “AVVO shows that I have a disciplinary violation, which I did from an advertising violation of my firm. In 2005, the criminal division hired an advertising company to fly a banner with the phone number 1-800-Not Guilty. The Florida bar determined it to be a violation because it did not have the name of our law firm on the banner and our principal office location. As the managing partner, I assumed responsibility and attended a three hour advertising workshop as my punishment.”
