Mr. Frankel represents clients in ERISA appeals and administrative proceedings, with a superior understanding of the ERISA appeals process, the highly complex laws and rules that govern the ERISA process, and the tight time frames that are so critical to this area of the law to each matter. He is an active member, Treasurer and long-standing supporter of the AHRC-Garden City auxiliary, an organization dedicated to enriching the lives of people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our amazing team member, Senior Paralegal Christina Panzarella. It is with their intense commitment and dedication to our clients, the Law Office of Justin Frankel have achieved the results that have kept our firm at the forefront of disability insurance law. If there was a Super Paralegals ranking, we are confident both would be selected.
