Established in 1979, the law firm of Attorneys Dell & Schaefer, Chartered, has represented thousands of clients with their claims against insurance companies. Our disability income division focuses exclusively on the representation of long term disability insurance claimants in both private policy and group disability (ERISA) claims.

We represent individuals at all stages of a claim for disability income benefits. We only represent claimants and we never represent insurance companies. Our law firm represents disability insurance claimants throughout the nation and we have handled cases in almost every state. Dell & Schaefer has earned the “AV” professional peer review rating by Martindale Hubbell, the highest qualification rating a law firm can receive. We have handled numerous cases both in and out of court against every major disability insurance company and are familiar with all their tactics.

On our website – – we offer a great amount of helpful information about disability insurance claims. We track every disability insurance company on a daily basis in order to keep up with their latest tactics and lawsuits around the country. Disability claimants can either post comments about their disability insurance experience or ask general questions about disability insurance claims. Our disability lawyers respond on a daily basis to most comments. The Frequently Asked Questions and Disabling Conditions sections of our site offer some of our most popular content.

On a regular basis we film and add new videos related to long term disability insurance claims. Throughout our website you will find custom videos about our disability claim legal services, frequently asked questions, specific disability insurance companies, and disability company claims handling practices such as video surveillance, IME exams, and claimant interview request.


We encourage you to contact us if you are considering applying for disability income benefits, have been denied total or partial disability benefits, or are interested in approaching your insurance carrier about a lump-sum buy-out of your disability income policy.
