Services from Alex Dell's Office
I was referred to Alex Dell by a co worker several years ago in regard to a workers comp case. Alex from day one went above & beyond for me. He looked into all my past cases as well as the current case and was able to close an old knee case I was not aware was even unsettled!! He researched attorneys to represent me in a malpractice suit for which he had no claim in. Because of this I was awarded a large settlement for that case. He has represented me ( as well as George ) in several complicated workers comp cases over several years and in the end they were able to settle all of my cases to more than my satisfaction! His office staff is always professions and courteous and they also go above and beyond !! His office was also able to get me SSD benefits in a timely manner. I have referred many friends and family members to Alex Dells office and all have had nothing but great things to say about him and his staff as well. I will continue to refer to his office . His staff continues to be helpful with mileage request, prescription drug issues and much more. Alex is always an email away and there to help ! I have nothing but positives things to say about him and his entire staff.

Very professional and responsive - highly recommended!
I greatly appreciate the hard work of the Law Firm of Alex Dell. The team of William Sterbinsky and Ryan Dell have been working on my VA disability case, and they have gone above and beyond to fight for my highest possible VA disability compensation. They kept me informed at all steps, and stayed in close contact with the VA throughout this process to move things forward. I am equally impressed with the team of Sharmila Suriyasena and Elizabeth Perez in their diligent handling of my Social Security disability case. They filed all claims and appeals paperwork in a timely manner, followed up often with the SSA to check the status, and provided me detailed guidance on the paperwork and appointments I needed to complete. I couldn't imagine navigating these bureaucracies without the help of the dedicated professionals I named above. Everybody I communicated with at this law firm has been responsive, and patiently and politely answered my many questions. I feel like they are handling my cases with compassion and integrity. I highly recommend the Law Firm of Alex Dell!

"Dream Team" of Attorneys
I am limited to 4000 words for this review and it would never do the Alex Dell Law firm justice. I hired the Alex Dell Law Firm in 2015 to handle 3 very complex and intertwined cases. Mr. Dells attorneys conducted a free case analysis and found 2 additional cases that I had never been compensated for!. We settled 3 out of the 5 cases for nearly six figures and I was awarded lifetime indemnity payments for the others. Additionally, the Dell Law Firm also handled my Social Security Disability case with ease and had my application approved in under 8 months after initially being denied. My cases we against a large city in upstate NY ( With the NASTIEST lawyers and insurance carrier on the market) and a hospital. Mr Dells attorneys made quick work of them in the courtroom because they were prepared and had the facts, the law and the truth on their side. I would be negligent not to mention the paralegals and support staff that operate behind the scenes but are there for you at a moments notice. My assigned paralegal always answers my emails or phone calls within 24 hours and often times several minutes! . It makes me feel that I am the Dell Law Firms only client and EVERYONE is working for me. In my humble opinion Mr. Dell and his group of attorneys are ALL AV-1 rated lawyers in the field of workers compensation and social security disability. You cannot go wrong in hiring this law firm to represent you.

Alex Dell Great Lawyer!
First and foremost I want to say thank you, Alex, for a job well done. Thank you for your representation. I want to thank your associates also. Alex is not only a great lawyer but a wonderful person. He is empathetic and treats his clients as a family member. He listens to what you have to say and will tell you the facts about your case, what he can or cannot do. He stays in touch and gives you updates. This is a law firm I highly recommend to anyone who wants a lawyer that will represent you and not the other side. He is a winner. Again congratulations Alex for a job well done.

Review of Alex Dell
I was very pleased with the Worker Compensation cases I had. I could not have gotten the results for each case without the hard work of Alex and his staff members. I had a couple cases that were a little challenging and he and his office spent a lot of extra time on them. They above and beyond.

An appreciative and highly satisfied Client
I was referred to the Law Firm of Alex Dell by a former satisfied client. I needed representation to appeal a denied SSD Claim. Not only was I successfully represented and won the claim on appeal (retroactive), but the Firm identified a possible Worker’s Compensation Claim. I was going through a very difficult time and feeling alone and confused in my troubles. Nicholas Fusco, an Attorney with the Firm, worked with me regarding the WC Claim possibility. It was not an easy case. Moving forward, I felt supported and understood. Throughout the proceedings, Mr. Fusco returned all of my calls/e-mails, helped me to understand the process, appeared clearly capable, and was a gentleman. He represented my case with clarity and integrity. Following a number of depositions/hearings, Mr. Fusco was required to present the Judge with a Summative Memorandum. It was remarkable, and to the Judge, undeniable. We also won this Claim (retroactive). No Attorney can guarantee an outcome, but I trusted and felt assured that I was in competent and caring hands. If you require representation for a SSD Claim, or a Worker’s Comp Claim, you need look no further than the Law Firm of Alex Dell. I was in the same position as you... You may trust my recommendation. Justice requires action and a voice. The Law Firm of Alex Dell was my voice. I will forever be appreciative of their support, as well as the victorious outcome; Which is why I made the time to write this review...

Amazing experience!!!
This firm is amazing. When I turned my case over to them I felt like I did no work. I was still injured and they wrangled all of the paperwork as it came making it a worry free process. Their professionalism and prompt action kept me focused on recovery. I recommend this firm to everyone. It's amazing, and the customer service is the best.

Just one Alex Dell.
I was injured on 2002. Someone mentioned Alex Dell. After hearing only good things, I met with him, and immediately became a client. What I liked most is the way he explains everything and makes sure I understand all of it before I leave his office. Surely, as everyone feels, he does treat me like we are old friends. Good job, Alex from us here in Averill Park. Your name should be in lights.

Police PBA STAY AWAY
So many reasons to stay away, rude incompetent employees, false promises and condescending attitude of Dell. Lost my case, dragged their feet and overall waste of time………….

Feet Don't Fail Me Now
The firm is very personable. Alex Dell told me I would have his personal attention but the case was given to another lawyer, then when we went into the office to ask if that lawyer would stay with the case, we were assured he would but on the final hearing, someone else that we never heard of took the hearing. It should not matter but it does matter who handles the case because my information through the years got lost, the most up to date information was NOT submitted to providers, I went to IMEs where multiple doctors said they had no information about my injuries nor my case. Phone calls that go to staff go unreturned or to voicemail. At one point the firm blamed a new computer system for losing my case files. I have a legit WC injury and through the work of this firm... I don't know why it took me so long to leave this firm. Ten years, not a single reimbursement. The most memorable moments of working with this firm was having to find medical help, I had to call the other parties' law firm for advice. I feel I got more information from the WCB Board Advocate than I ever received from this firm.

Will never use again, vague on case details, horrible paralegal Wendy
I'm more than dissatisfied with my case. I asked details of my case through every step of appeals and just vague on why it was denied. That is 1/4 the reason I will not do business with them again. 3/4 of the reason was because the horrible paralegal Wendy that i was assigned. First start, she talked down to me like I was an idiot when I asked questions. Also when I asked about appeals and things the lawyer and I discussed, she argued with me saying I was wrong and didn't have a clue what I was talking about. She told me opposite information on my case than what me lawyer and I talked about. Last straw was I called her to see if I should fill out form from insurance carrier sent to me in the mail, she said yes and drop it off at Alex Dell to get notarized and the law office will look it over and send it out. I did what she said, later it was used against me which i don't have as much issue with it, but then to question me the next time I called her saying why didn't I check with her before sending it out and I shouldn't of done that. I told her I did what she said and was sent out from your office, she said I'm gravely mistaken and wasn't going to argue. That burned me deeply since I trusted this law office for guidance on my case then turn and blame me for wrong turns in the case. Due to the paralegal Wendy being wrong on advice and case details, unprofessional, and taking forever to call back, My brother also has a case within law firm and has the same gripes with Wendy arguing with him and telling him wrong details of case. We both will not be using this law firm again mainly because of the paralegal. Wendy doesn't do any service for this firm with her attitude and ineptitude of the cases she handles.
