I knew I needed to hire an attorney after my disability benefits were denied. I quickly realized that I had no idea what I was up against with the major disability insurance company that was holding my claim. Initially, I was awarded a long term disability claim, but nine months later those benefits were denied. I was frightened and worried as I was still unable to return to work due to my disability, and, as a matter of fact, my symptoms became even worse due to the stress and anxiety of my benefits being denied. I knew I needed representation as I simply could not battle this on my own. I had no knowledge of this process and I needed to protect myself and my family. Being a paralegal for over 20 years, I did my research on disability attorneys, and decided to reach out to Newfield & Frankel. It was by far, the best decision I ever made regarding my disability claim.
From the very first phone call, I knew they were the attorneys for me. I was able to speak to Jason Newfield on that first call. Just talking to him that first time, I already felt comforted by his knowledge of the disability insurance company that I was dealing with, as well as his awareness of the entire disability claim process. He did not “sugar coat” anything. He told it like it is, and made me understand who we were up against and what we can expect. His experience in this field was (and is) clearly unparallel. Needless to say, I knew I needed him on my side, and quickly hired him. Jason wasted no time at all. He had retention papers drown up and signed, and the same day he sent a letter to my disability insurance company, letting them know that he now represents me and that we will appeal their decision to deny my benefits. He was exactly what I needed! I have two children under the age of 7, and I had no time to waste physically, mentally or financially.
Jason and his extremely diligent paralegal, Christina, worked feverishly on my appeal, as they knew I was unable to return to work due to my disability, and how my family and I were financially strained. Throughout the appeal process, Jason was always accessible. He was available whenever I called, and responded to my emails within minutes. Jason prepared an appeal that consisted of hundreds of pages. Along with my medical records stating my disabilities, there was overwhelming research and facts about my condition and its debilitating symptoms, as well as extensive arguments about the findings of the insurance company’s doctors that reviewed my medical records, and as a result, wrongfully denied my benefits. The appeal was beyond impressive. That said, due to their dedication and hard work, my disability benefits were reinstated!
It has been well over a year that I hired Jason Newfield as my attorney and to date he still represents me with my disability claim, as I am still receiving disability benefits. I cannot express the relief my husband and I feel with Jason on our side. His expertise, reliability and overall kindness are remarkable. I am deeply grateful for all Jason and his team has done, and continues to do, for me and my family. My disability has changed my life and it has been a struggle every day, but the comfort I receive by having hired Jason Newfield is invaluable. If you are reading this review and are considering hiring an attorney to represent you with your disability claim, trust me, you need to look no further. Simply call Newfield & Frankel, and I guarantee that after your initial conversation with them, you will feel as I did and know that you will be in great hands!

After a lot of research, I hired Jason to act as my attorney against my insurance company who had unfairly withdrawn my disability payments. I had been impressed by the reviews that I had read about him and the cases he had won previously. I was not disappointed! From the beginning, Jason was highly professional, informative and his attention to every detail gave me the utmost confidence that we could be successful. Mine was a complex case, involving a lot of medical information and data which proved no problem for him. The case ran for almost a year and finally in December we were informed that the insurance company had overturned their decision and would resume payments. I simply cannot recommend Jason or his assistant Christina highly enough, as without them and their expert knowledge of the law and understanding of the complexities case, I could have never won and got back what was legally and fairly owed to me.

I first retained Jason Newfield several years ago, when I was contemplating a potential disability insurance claim. We discussed the issues and my concerns, as there were a number of complicated issues involved. Jason was able to distill these issues and help me navigate through them with relative ease. When it came time to file the claim, the process was smooth, relative to the issues involved. Throughout the process, Jason anticipated how the insurance companies would behave, and was able to develop strategies to effectively combat their approaches. On top of his knowledge base and skillful advocacy, he was extremely responsive and timely to each of my needs, concerns and questions. I have utilized many attorneys over the years on various matters, and his level of competence and confidence was unparalleled. I strongly endorse Jason to anyone who has a disability claim.

I utilized the services of Jason Newfield for my long term disability claim. I have had experiences with other attorneys for various reasons but Jason Newfield is by far the best attorney I have ever known. He thoroughly reviewed my policies and explained them to me at our initial meeting. He explained to me each and every step that would occur throughout the process of this claim. I always felt that he understood that this was a life changing event and I always felt like he put forth 100 percent of his efforts to do what was in my best interest. He knew the answers to every question I had and often knew the questions that I was going to ask and that the insurance companies were going to ask before they were asked. He is confident and clearly knows his line of work. He responded to every e-mail I ever sent him within an hour of sending it. If you ever worked with an attorney before, you know that most of them don't even return your phone calls or e-mails. He even responded to my e-mail once on the weekend, and once when he was on vacation. He is professional and knowledgable. He minimized my interactions with the insurance companies which helped take away a lot of anxiety. He understood that this process was scary and carried with it a lot of uneasiness, and he was instrumental at minimizing those feelings. I personally was in the healthcare field and his knowledge of the diagnosis I have was extremely impressive. I recommend Jason Newfield without question or reservation. Ultimately I was successful with my claim and I and my family thank Jason for his help with all of our hearts. In addition, I know of another healthcare professional who is a friend of mine who used his firm for a long term disability claim. My friend was also successful in his claim. When it comes to long term disability claims, I could not imagine having any other attorney on my side.

After a severe fall accident with complete shoulder separation (inoperable) and my third severe concussion resulting in cummulative TBI impairments that precluded continued safe patient interactions, Jason exuded the utmost professional guidance in my disability claim. I was lost without his diligent guidance in dealing and representing me as advocate for my claim. He had me sign documents that they were to deal directly with him as my representative and with memory impairments that was critical in hindsight for him to protect my rights and represent me. He was dedicated, ethically and morally behaved with the highest of standards and very responsive to all of my needs, whether perceived by me or real challenges with the insurer who may attempt to minimize their responsibility, while collecting a large premium for 30 yrs. I never intended to retire from practice of medicine, but when accidents happen suddenly and recovery is insufficient to preclude a safe return to patient management and interaction, I can not speak highly enough nor praise his skills and caring , ready to help me emotionally and represent my best interests in the face of potential adversarial insurance industry. I truly am grateful that he enabled me to get on with my new life and adapt to such a stressful change in my identity without feeling guilt nor shame. I have been able to re-create myself in a positive way that would have been impossible without the skills and outstanding professional guidance I received from Jason. His integrity is highly commendable and I am impressed with his skill set, having worked with many attorneys over the years on non-disability items, eg.real estate, medical practice issues, contracts, etc.

This is a copy of my last note to Jason Newfield.
Every now and then, you pop into my mind and I think of how fortunate I was to have you as my lawyer. I wanted to let you know again how much I appreciate your services. Your knowledge of the law was only superseded by your ability to reach out to me with patience, kindness and understanding. My wife and I always felt comfort with your personal attention to our difficult situation. In my practice of medicine, I prided myself on trying to treat each patient as an individual. The same holds true for lawyers.

It was the most uncertain time in my life when I met Jason Newfield, who provided a reassuring and caring environment to walk through a challenging process. As a medical professional at the peak of my career, it was devastating to come to terms with the realization that I would no longer practice due to physical problems with my dominant hand. With Jason's knowledge and experience we successfully navigated the waters of disability insurance...FCE's, IME's, and many many forms. Recently, Jason was instrumental in maximizing a settlement from one Disability Insurance Company....and many years later I still receive monthly benefits from another.
From day one and through the years, Jason has always been compassionate, organized, responsive, and a truly talented source of support. Thank you Jason!

After attempting to submit a claim to my insurance company for long term disability benefits, I was denied. I found myself in a situation where I was unable to return to work and extremely ill. It was difficult enough dealing with the illness, but fighting an insurance company was beyond overwhelming.
I hired Jason and his team to assist with an appeal. They spent hours upon hours investigating my case, gathering medical records and truly understanding my condition. They not only went above and beyond what I would have expected of a law firm, but they were so compassionate and understanding.
Every time I had a question or concern, Jason would respond immediately. I was informed that the insurance company reversed their decision right before I was admitted to the hospital for the third time this year. I am now collecting benefits and I truly feel so blessed to have found such an amazing group in what has been the most difficult time of my life.

I was referred to Jason Newfield after having my LTD claim rejected by my insurance company. After careful consideration, I hired Mr. Newfield to handle my appeal for a very reasonable flat fee. I refer to the fee as reasonable after seeing what his team drafted for my insurance company. He put together the most comprehensive package I could have hoped for with a very methodical yet personal process. We were successful due to his due diligence and he continues to manage my insurance company with ongoing success. I would also note that hiring an attorney can be overwhelming, however, my experience with Jason Newfield has been very positive. I find him to be forthcoming, fair, honest, and hardworking. I would be happy to be a reference for this attorney.

Mr. Newfield was referred to me by a professional colleague with a similar issue.
From the start, my affairs both physical and emotional were handled by him personally with the utmost discretion and direction.

Each and every aspect of the situation was examined and discussed and was handled with a persistent determination.
He is extremely knowledgeable and confident about disabilities and the workplace.
He helped me get through my difficult issues with compassion and support.
Mr Newfield's tenacity was demonstrated in his every movement towards the issues and their resolution.
As time passed and a request was made to the office it was handled quickly and efficiently.
The office is fair, personal, professional, easy to communicate with and has been successful.
