Our Firm represents professional and executive clients at every stage of the disability claim process, covering all of your long term disability needs. A disability insurance lawyer works hard to ensure you receive what you are legally entitled to. We assist with developing your exit strategy from work. In addition, we help you prepare your short term disability application, long term disability application and application for a medical leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). We also monitor your benefits after they are approved, and we will prepare your appeal if an insurer denies your benefits.
In the unlikely event you need to file a lawsuit against your insurer, our winning team of long term disability insurance lawyers will litigate your case in Court.

Our affiliate firm, Turley, Redmond, Rosasco & Rosasco, offers Social Security and Workers Compensation representation of the highest caliber. Because we have singularly focused on long term disability matters for over two decades, we have a profound sense of understanding for the frustration, fear and anger many of our clients feel towards their insurance company.

We can help you whether you live in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, or elsewhere. If you live far away, we will keep in touch by telephone, fax, email and overnight mail. We run a paperless office and pride ourselves on our technological sophistication.
If litigation is necessary, we bring lawsuits against insurance companies in the Federal courts in New York City. This is possible for out-of-state clients because insurance companies can be sued any place in which they can be found and most insurance companies can be found in New York. Many of our clients find this to be advantageous because the Federal courts in New York City are among the best in the country to bring ERISA cases. If, however, you prefer to bring your case closer to home, we can represent you by seeking the assistance of local counsel. This is because we have colleagues we work with throughout the country.
The consultation process consists of two steps: the telephone interview, and then an in-person meeting.
First, our disability insurance lawyers consult with you over the phone. This consultation is completely free and complimentary. It’s our chance to get to know your concerns, answer your questions, and find out the details of your claim, including the nature of your disability, your current work status, your disability insurance coverage, and other pertinent details. This Interview is conducted by our Client Relations Specialist, who is an experienced paralegal. She will determine whether our firm can meet your needs and goals, and if so, we will schedule a face-to-face meeting in order to move forward.
Next, you will come to our offices to meet with Scott M. Riemer, our Managing Attorney face-to-face. This meeting is usually an hour, but is not restricted by time. Your spouse or significant other is also welcome to attend. The meeting could be performed over the phone for your convenience if you are unable to travel to our office. During your meeting, LTD insurance attorney Mr. Riemer will conduct an in-depth interview, review your documents, and formulate a preliminary plan for moving forward with your claim, complete with next steps and a payment structure. Mr. Riemer will also answer all of your questions, so come prepared and ask away. The cost of the In-Person Meeting is a flat fee of $500.
