- John D. Allen, Esq.Syracuse, NY
Frank Clark is an attorney in Syracuse whose practice is limited to advising and representing professionals, business executives and others regarding the need for and acquisition of disability insurance and the pursuit of claims for long term disability, office overhead reimbursement, disability waivers, Social Security disability and related benefits.
Frank’s focus on the needs of professionals and his record of success set him apart from other disability attorneys. Frank’s clients benefit from his thorough understanding of the challenges that face professionals and others with disability claims, together with his ability to stay abreast of the latest changes in insurance coverages and the laws, rules and regulations that determine the outcome of these claims.
Frank handles all his cases personally. He doesn't rely on paralegals or administrative staff. He is solely responsible for every important aspect of a case, from the initial interview to the closing correspondence. It’s this kind of personal attention, combined with 40 years of experience handling disability claims, that makes the difference between winning and losing.
Poor health can affect people from all walks of life. Professionals and non-professionals alike can experience accidents or debilitating illness that prevent them from working.
Professionals, business executives and other individuals with high earnings have special needs insofar as disability coverage and claims are concerned. They require insurance that will protect them and their families from loss of income and cover the high cost of ongoing business and other expenses in the event of disability. When purchasing insurance, they need to select a reputable carrier that has a good track record of approving claims.
Professionals' claims are subjected to close scrutiny by disability carriers due to the large amounts of money at stake; the fact that their highly marketable skills are often transferrable to other, less demanding occupations; and simple bias against those who are better off in life. These claims require unusually focused and vigorous legal representation.
Over the years, Frank has successfully represented doctors, lawyers, CEOs, financial consultants, educators, bankers and engineers; as well as truck drivers, factory workers, clerical workers and laborers. He represents all of his clients with the same degree of professionalism and courtesy that anyone needing capable legal assistance should expect to receive.
