5.0 stars 5 totalReview Gregory Dell
Posted by Thomas
When I first thought about a disability claim and what was required to qualify, I met with Greg Dell and he clearly spelled it all out for me. He quickly advised me that with my problems I was definitely deserving of benefits. I was given a choice between an hourly or percentage compensation rate. I choose the percentage rate as I wanted Greg to be a partner in my claim and handle all the complexities associated with getting paid and the continued documentation required. I have had my share of experiences with lawyers and I have to say Greg Dell was the most professional as well as honest and caring one I have ever met. He makes no promises but points out all the facts in your case and what he feels you need to be successful. The e-mails sent are always answered promptly. I have to mention that his staff specifically Vanessa is always available and helpful. I believe it is possible to do the whole process yourself, but I WOULD NOT RECCOMMEND IT. It is my personal opinion that the insurance company does not want to pay you no matter what and a good attorney is essential to navigate all the road blocks put in front of you. Thank you Greg for guiding me and helping me financially protect my family.

After suffering with the symptoms of ME/CFS for nearly 3 years, I was finally diagnosed with ME/CFS in August of 2011. I filed a claim and was approved by my disability insurance carrier initially. After a little over one year of not working, I started seeing some minor improvement. I told my doctor about the improvement and my carrier took that as news that I was now ready to return to work, which was far from the truth. My doctor told me not to go back to work yet, knowing it would only set me back and reverse my progress. My insurance carrier did not care and they made me attempt work. If I didn’t follow their rules they were going to drop me. I had no idea what to do or what my rights were in my disability contract. I called Greg Dell. Greg gave me great advice. He spent a great deal of time on the phone with me answering all my questions, explaining all my options and recommending the best course of action. He was able to explain things to them that just made sense. I have been working with him for well over a year. He could articulate what I and my doctors were saying that I was not able to on my own. Anyone with ME/CFS knows how incredibly hard and difficult it is to try and explain your symptoms and limitations to someone. Greg actually gets it and is who you want in your corner when you’re dealing with an insurance company that is not your friend. Greg was able to get me back on total disability with no work requirement. Unfortunately the work I had to do for those months in between did set me way back in my recovery, but that only makes me wish I had gone with Greg from the get go instead of waiting for a crisis that could have been prevented.
They take the time to treat you as a person, understand your contract and defend you when you can’t defend yourself. A sick person going against a huge insurance carrier with legions of lawyers on staff is not a fair fight. You need Dell & Schaefer.
After dealing with my insurance carrier on my own and now having Greg, the difference is night and day. It’s a massive relief.

I first heard of Dell and Schaefer through the internet. Their reviews were very solid. I also asked several people who had experience with disability claims about who they might recommend. Greg Dell kept coming up. Finally I asked my financial advising firm in Dallas who they knew and got the name Greg Dell. So I felt pretty good with recommendations from all over the country. I spoke with Greg on the phone and he was very informative and felt he could help me with my case. He walked me through what documentation was required and what to expect from his fees and time and what to expect from the Insurance company.
The process was difficult to go through and at times he had to act more as a psychologist than a lawyer with me as the insurance company fights these types of claims formidably. He handled the claim extremely well and I recommend his services highly. He appears to be well known in the Insurance industry and that helps as they know he is thorough and tough.
Greg is a tough and thorough lawyer that understands the process and will head off problems before they become an issue. Honest and upfront about billing. Did not receive any surprises. Very quick to respond to issues and communicates well with clients.
I am very pleased with the service and the outcome of my experience with Greg. I give him my highest recommendation.

As a physician that was no longer able to perform my duties I was shocked by the resistance from my disability insurance company. Greg took over my claim and walked me through the entire claim handling process. We were able to avoid litigation and I have been receiving my long term disability benefits with Greg's assistance for more than 8 years. The company always looks for reasons not to pay, but Greg is always watching my claim and keeping the insurance company honest. I could not deal with this disability company without legal representAtion. I highly reccomended Greg Dell and his team of lawyers.

I had a disability insurance claim with Sedgwick and AT&T. I had hear nightmare stories about Sedgwick and after my claim was denied I immediately hired Gregory Dell at Dell & Schaefer. Greg explained the Appeal process to me and gave me reasonable expectation. Over a period of a year we won an appeal and then Sedgwick would deny me again. We finally won our last appeal and now I am getting paid. Mr. Dell did a ton of work for me and he was always available to answer my questions. He would respond to emails within minutes and always return my calls. I was very worried about getting paid, but I always felt good knowing that Mr. Dell was fighting for me and continuing to tell me what Sedgwick would try to do next to deny my claim. Thank you for helping me as I would have been homeless without your help. I highly recommend your services.
