Our clients face unique challenges. 

Riemer Hess helps executives, professionals, and other highly accomplished individuals who need long term disability benefits.  These claims present unique challenges due to the highly demanding nature of the occupations involved, coupled with the insurer's heightened financial incentive to withold benefits.  

The insurance companies often fail to acknowledge the highly demanding nature of the occupations involved in these claims.  It is common for insurers to downplay the material and substantial work duties, and oversimplify the responsibilities involved -- making it easier to justify benefit denial. 

The insurers are incentivized to do so because these claims tends to have higher monthly benefits amounts at stake.  This "profit-first" approach can be incredibly stressful for our clients.  Their claims are subjected to heightened scrutiny and skeptism at a time when our clients just need the insurer to hold up its end of the bargain.


Our clients deserve attorneys who rise to the challenge.

Our clients deserve attorneys who are familiar with the unique hurdles that their claims present and will do what it takes to get the job done.  We pride ourselves on going above and beyond for our clients.  We work hard to proactively anticipate the insurer's next move, avoid common pitfalls, and set forth the strongest possible strategy.  Our clients appreciate our NYC grit and "can do" attitude.  Whatever the insurer throws at our clients, we never back down or buckle.


Our clients deserve attorneys who prioritize reducing their stress level.

Our clients are going through an incredibly stressful period that is full of uncertainty and worry.  They deserve attorneys who not only recognize this, but who prioritize reducing their stress level as much as possible.  We aim to guide our clients every step of the way so that it's not so overwhelming.  Our clients rest easy knowing that we're in their corner. 


Our clients deserve transparent attorneys who empower them.

Our clients are highly sophisticated individuals.  Our concierge legal services are designed to empower them through mutual candor, respect, and trust.  We proactively keep our clients updated throughout the process -- always with the highest degree of transparency.  That's why our clients get easy access to a dedicated team and 24/7 access to their Client Portal, where they can view documents, correspondence, and progress on their claims at any time.  Our clients deserve to know what is going on, so we never leave them in the dark.
