The firm's disability income division is comprised of eight attorneys who represent claimants throughout all stages (i.e. applications, denials, appeals, litigation, & lump-sum policy buyouts) of a claim for individual or group (ERISA) long-term disability benefits. Gregory Dell received his B.S./B.A. in Accounting at Washington University in St. Louis and his J.D. from Benjamin Cardozo School of Law in New York City. Following law school, Mr. Dell spent several years developing his trial skills as an Assistant State Attorney in Broward County Florida, where he handled thousands of criminal cases and participated in more than 50 jury trials.

After joining Dell & Schaefer, Mr. Dell easily transitioned into the civil arena and dedicated his legal career to fighting for the rights of individuals against insurance companies. At the age of 27, Mr. Dell represented an emergency room physician and obtained a $2.96 million dollar jury verdict against Nationwide Insurance Company. Mr. Dell has continued to fight insurance companies on a daily basis and has recovered millions of dollars in long-term disability income benefits on behalf of his clients. He has litigated against every major disability insurance company throughout the country. In 2006, Mr. Dell was selected by the nation's largest legal publication company (Thomson Reuters) to author a treatise on long-term disability insurance law. The book is published each year and is intended to be used as an authoritative source on disability insurance law by attorneys and judges. Mr. Dell's articles on long-term disability benefits have appeared in nationwide publications and he is the creator of DisabilityLawBlog.com.

Mr. Dell is admitted to the Florida, District of Colombia, Massachusetts, Texas, and New York State Bar Associations, as well as multiple federal district courts throughout the nation. At a national level, Mr. Dell is a member of the American Association for Justice (formerly known as Association of Trial Lawyers of America), American Bar Association Health and Disability Insurance Law Committee, and the American Health Lawyers Association. Mr. Dell is the founder of the Attorneys Dell & Schaefer Charitable Foundation, a not for profit organization which was formed to promote health and safety in our communities to improve lives of individuals.

Outside the practice of law, Mr. Dell is a husband and father of two boys. Mr. Dell believes that exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, and while some may say he takes exercise to an extreme, his dedication and commitment is demonstrated by his completion of the Ironman Florida triathlon, 5 Half-Ironman triathlons, and multiple marathons including New York City, Chicago and San Diego.
