What Our Clients Say

“Mr. Quiat was very specific about my options, chances of a successful appeal, and the costs of same. We did discuss the possibility of taking the issue to court and costs of such action. My appeal, as directed by Mr. Quiat, with the assistance of professionals at his firm, was successful on the first attempt. There was no need to take the time and incur the costs of a trial.”

The Experience You Need

For more than 30 years, we have focused on getting policyholders what insurance companies owe them. We understand the hardships you might face when forced to fight a big insurance company. Our disability lawyers in New York and New Jersey have the knowledge and experience to successfully guide you through this highly adversarial process, so you get the policy benefits you are entitled to.

The Details Matter

Insurance claims, especially disability and psychiatric claims, require detail-specific information. Because of this, it’s important to understand what information will be required, including necessary medical and vocational evidence. Mistakes can be avoided together — before they needlessly derail or delay an otherwise perfectly appropriate claim.

We have clients suffering from a broad array of disabling injuries and illnesses such as degenerative disc disease, multiple sclerosis Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injury (TBI), coronary artery disease, cancer, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, Meniere’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, orthopedic impairments, repetitive stress injuries (RSI) such as carpal tunnel syndrome, back, neck, knee, and shoulder problems.

In addition to this, our office has substantial expertise working on psychiatric disability claims, representing clients who are suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and other psychiatric diagnoses.
