Dear Frank, Socorro, heather, Susan and Staff:
From the bottom of our hearts we want to thank you for fighting for us. Our family is truly blessed to have you by our side.
I would like to say to any potential client that if you feel as though no one is listening to you and you are being runaround by your insurance companies. I can't recommend DarrasLaw highly enough.
If i met someone and found that they were in need of a disability attorney... the first thing I would tell them is call Frank Darras.
DarrasLaw was the answers to my prayers. I am grateful for the way they handled my case.
DarrasLaw did a great job for me... I highly recommend them to resolve your issues because they can do it.
Below is a collection of responses we received from our clients. Like you,
these are real people who needed the help of a top disability lawyer.
Very helpful and friendly!!! Also very prompt responsiveness. Highly recommend.- Laurence F.
Very Satisfied With Their Work...
DarrasLaw took care of my problems with the disability insurance company. I was very satisfied with their work and give my highest recommendation. Thank you Susan Grabarsky.- Leah H.
Exceptional insights. Superb customer service. Highly recommend DarrasLaw Firm.- Kamran A.
Knowledgeable and Very Efficient!
What a wonderful company! I needed help with an already existing and complicated disability claim. I cannot believe how much information this firm has given me without even charging for that time. It is very hard to find a firm that represents already existing claims instead of only working on disability claims trying to be started. I come from the corporate world and I can say that every person I have talked to here has been caring, knowledgeable and very efficient. You just don’t see this kind of professionalism anywhere these days. Thank You Susan and team for easing my worries at a very difficult time in my life. I cannot recommend this firm enough for your disability needs!!- Annetta Jordan
Thank You So Much
I just wanted to express my deep appreciation to all of you for all of your hard word and dedication. You should all be very proud. I cant tell you how much I appreciate the kindness, and exemplary professionalism every person with whom I have dealt with at DarrasLaw has exhibited during this journey. Thank you so much with helping me receive this settlement so I can continue to live my life.- Confidential
Top Notch Law Firm
Frank Darras and his team is top notch, the best. They treat you the way you dream to be treated. Very caring, sincere, and thorough. Their team was very professional and friendly. They take great care of me. I appreciate them so much.- Arin B.
I highly recommend Darras Law firm
If you are seeking a law firm that pays attention to detail, passionate about what they do and gets results, I highly recommend Darras Law firm. I had the pleasure of working with Susan Grabarsky. Her wealth of knowledge, calm and empathic demeanor offered assistance and support in times of our distress. Her expertise was invaluable to us and without hesitation, I would highly recommend her and Darras Law firm. Thank you Susan, my family and I are eternally grateful for your service.- Bridget B.
We are so Grateful
We are so grateful that we came across the website and reached out for a free consult with Darras Law for my daughter-in-law. We had reached out to several other law firms and no one offered the level of professional support and help that Frank Darras personally offered to us. When applying for long-term disability he graciously offered to review the application free of charge and to have a phone consult to review the policy and answer our questions. It helped us tremendously in the application process. Thanks to the help from Mr. Darras, my DIL was approved but the insurance company is claiming her disability is due to mental health, which is not the case. Once again we reached out to Mr. Darras and asked him to review a letter we had drafted. He edited the letter free of charge on a timely basis. For the partner in such a successful law firm, we were blown away by how approachable and humble he is . Should we need to appeal our case in the future, which is likely, we will use the services of Frank Darras without hesitation. His knowledge, professionalism, sense of urgency and compassion are unparalleled. His office support team is also outstanding.- Sharon B.
Twice, you lifted me up and supported me when I needed it most.
Your kindness, care, and generosity in helping me resolve the reservation of rights and settlement with Unum reached touched me deeply.
Twice, you lifted me up and supported me when I needed it most. Medical science may have failed me thus far, but, you, precious Frank, were my hero at the beginning of my journey with Unum… and again at the end.
I feel grateful each day for the advice and peace of mind you provided along the way. You helped me navigate the toughest detour in my life.
Thank you… not just for all that you did for me… but, for simply being you. Because, I believe that made all the difference in the world!
Wishing you and yours lasting health and happiness!
- Lori P.
LTD Denial Client
I had made several attempts appealing my denial of continuing my LTD benefits on my own. Many law firms would not take my case until I found Darras Law. They patiently listened to my story and agreed to take my case. From day one I was treated like I was their only client. Emails and phone calls were returned almost immediately. I want to thank legal secretary Margie Cadaval, attorney Valerie Garcia and Mr. Darras for their compassion, kindness and service. My case has been settled. I am forever grateful.- Tami S.
I highly recommend her
I consulted with Susan Grabarsky regarding my individual disability policy.
After speaking with her, I was impressed by the breadth of her knowledge in
this area of law and by her willingness to help, regardless of whether I
would ever become a paying client. Over the years she has helped me avoid a
claim denial many times.

Thanks a Trillion Billion
Got my first lifetime benefit payment today!!!!! I was REALLY sweating it, since my policy expired on 6/17/18 as per their contract. I really appreciate all that you have done for me over the years to allow me to be a recipient of this life time benefit for my family.
I can’t say enough good things about this lawyer
Susan Grabarsky and her team were so professional, but also compassionate, which is a difficult balance to strike. She is very knowledgeable of the law and the insurance industry. She handled my case with the dignity and respect that I only wish the insurance company had shown at any point in my claim.- Confidential
A professional law firm
Ms. Grabarsky and the entire law firm are very professional, responded promptly, and did an excellent job on my case.- Confidential
Susan Grabarsky is committed
Susan Grabarsky’s expertise, experience and professional guidance were simply outstanding. She helped me file my disability claim through each step of the process. She is committed to helping disabled professionals and employees and I highly recommend her.- Confidential
My attorney treated me as if I was his mother.
I felt like I was their only client. They went above and beyond the call of duty. I tried to fight the company on my own and I was getting no where. DarrasLaw, I am truly grateful and appreciative of all you have done for me. My future is secure because of you. What a wonderful team!- Brenda C.
The DarrasLaw firm is the best!
Each one was professional and helpful. They always responded to any of my questions quickly and efficiently. My attorney, Susan Grabarsky, was there for my husband and me. We always felt much better after speaking to her. Ms. Grabarsky explained everything and if we needed her to explain it again, she did. She is a wonderful person! I cannot thank DarrasLaw and my attorney Susan Grabarsky enough.- Marlene M.
I have nothing but praise for DarrasLaw.
They excelled in every aspect one can image experience, timeliness, and overall effectiveness. My DarrasLaw attorney was very knowledgeable, clear, concise, prompt, and more than willing to answer any questions I had. I can’t say enough good about this firm and in particular the attorney assigned to my case. I thank my lucky stars daily that I was acquainted with them. I am on the east coast and they are on the west coast and were much better, more prompt and more effective than my local attorney (please don’t concern yourself with distance). I would definitely highly recommend this firm with the utmost confidence that you would be in the very best hands possible!- Brenda C.
Thank You Very Much.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Frank Darras and his law firm for helping me with my disability case. I am truly blessed to have bene able to attain them as my representative, they were very knowledgeable and always kept me informed during the process of my case. I highly recommend them to everyone who is in need of an attorney who will fight for your rights. Thank You Very Much.- Roy R.
I felt as though I was their only client.
DarrasLaw was so helpful in getting me fair treatment with as little stress on me as possible. I live in Texas and dealt with the office in California, I never had to have a sit down with them as everything was done via telephone, fax and mail. All the people there were so understanding and respectful of me, I felt as though I was their only client. They fought for my rights with a very successful outcome. I will never forget what they did for me. I was an emotional wreck when I called them for help and everyone I spoke with helped me to believe that they would fight for me and I felt as though I could breathe again. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks to all the people who work there and to Mr. Darras personally.- Elizabeth W.
Our sincere thanks
“Our sincere thanks, words really can’t express our relief and gratitude to Mr. Darras, Ms. Conner, everyone involved with working on the case. The next day, we had to look again at the paperwork to make sure it wasn’t all just a dream.
We know the case was one of the more difficult ones with obstacles to overcome, but the knowledge that Mr. Darras had of her condition has not been seen by anyone other than the two physicians she had seen that specialize in it; funny that Mr. Darras’ explanation was the same as what her physician showed us when she first saw him during consultation.
We also know that your firm doesn’t boast about your vast knowledge of all sorts of disabling medical conditions; regardless of how uncommon they may be, with uncommon treatments even, yet your firm having this knowledge and experience is priceless. Partner with a Disability Insurance Attorney
We are honored and extremely happy that you took our case. Thank you for providing the tremendous stress relief needed, that will help towards healing.
Thank you again for everything you’ve done, we would definitely recommend your firm to anyone with difficulties as we had with our claim.”- Mr. and Mrs. H
Have a bright New Year!
“On a separate note, kindly pass on my congratulations to Mr. Darras on the Law Firm being selected by U.S. News as on one of the Best Law Firms in the Nation for 2014. I’m excited to be represented by an outstanding legal team! My Best Wishes to you, Socorro & Heather this Holiday Season. Have a bright New Year!”- Eric
We will be talking again.
“We would like to thank you very much for all your help and assistance in this matter. Everything went as you promised and more. Mr. Darras is a great and generous individual, he treated us as family yesterday. Our day went smooth and easy with no stress at all. Thank you again, best regards to all, we will be talking again. Have a great day and a nice weekend.”- J and L
Thank you for all you have done for me.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your professionalism and prompt way of handling my case. It is very hard these days to find a law firm that cares as much about its clients as you have shown me. I definitely recommend your services To anyone who has legal insurance needs in the future. Your services have far exceeded my expectations in every way. Again, thank you for all you have done for me.”- CS
Frank is the top in his profession.
“Frank was a true life line when I needed legal help after a near fatal auto accident. Frank is the top in his profession.”- Marc G.
Thank you Again!!!
“Jo-Ann, Just wanted to send you a note to thank you and the TEAM that helped me receive the funds I was due. I thought this was going to be a long drawn out thing with the insurance company but your team was super- fast on this. I will always remember your firm and if I hear of anyone else who needs your assistance. I know I can’t tell anyone about my deal but I will let them know there is real help at DarrasLaw. Tell everyone that I said hello and please thank them for me. Thank you Again!!!”- LM
Thanks for all that you and your staff do!
Hello Susan! Nice to hear from you! We’re doing well. I hope you are too! Thanks for all that you and your staff do! The most efficient and just plain nice people, I could imagine!- Andrew M.
All did a wonderful job
“I wanted to tell you thank you so much for what your team has done Heather, Catherine, and Terrance. All did a wonderful job of just getting me in to work with you guys, etc. I just wanted to say thank you to those guys and gals who worked very hard in getting things accomplished and today I received a phone call which I told Life Wise to make sure they contact you and not me anymore. I want to thank you guys because they reversed my claim and I’m getting my benefits again and I am very thankful for that. Thank you for your team again Heather, Terrance , and Catherine all did a great job keeping me informed working with me with my disability. Understanding what I was up against and explaining things in easy detail for me. I just wanted to say thank you, I appreciate it, and God bless.”- JC
I appreciate your support.
“To Lissa and Crew, Much thanks to all of you who believed in me and helped to win my battle with MetLife. I appreciate your support.”- P. Conway
I am so grateful for Mr. Darras
“Hi Jo-Ann: Thank you very much for the clarification as to when Cigna sends out the check. It has really helped me a lot. I am so grateful for Mr. Darras making that adjustment. It will help me tremendously. Since I am cc-ing him I will say to him, you and all the staff I have encountered, Thank you so very much! I needed this a lot. Blessings to all of you.”- Barbara T.
I truly appreciate all of you.
“Hi JoAnn, Socorro, Heather and Frank: Thank you for all your efforts in asking Cigna to send the funds earlier than the 10th of the month. I guess they will continue to be as hard as they were during the initial contact with my case, with their negative response to the request. Mr. Darras, please know how much it means to me for what all of have done for me. I may not be able to caught up to what is being paid each month, but I will do my best. Also, to continue to receive these funds is definitely going to assist me tremendously (and will never be forgotten). I truly appreciate all of you. Throughout the varied interactions, I always got the sense that you are not only professionals but a cohesive group, who care. Everyone has treated me as though I am the only case the firm has. Even though we know that is not the case, but to be treated like an individual speaks volumes. Again, thank you as it is very much appreciated.”- Barbara
I hope you can feel our thanks to you
“Dear Susan, I hope you can feel our thanks to you from Pennsylvania to California!!! I am still in shock…I can’t believe that I will never have to think about that dreaded four-letter word-“unum” again!! You don’t handle social security disability cases, do you?? I remember unum stated that will be in July of this year. God is amazing and He has had His hands on this situation. He is in control!! Well, I think you may hear from Jim-concerning what he writes about Dr. Altman. I am not sure. I will never forget what you have done for us–actually, the very first time we talked, that you said you would take our case—that was when you became my heroine!! I have never seen this much money in our checking account… Jim is calling our friend who works in our bank to check with her what would be the smart thing to do with it. It makes me nervous! Have a great day and hug your little boy for me. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. God bless you. Sincerely with my love,”- Marlene M.
Words really can not say enough.
“Thank you to all there at DarrasLaw Firm. Sharon and I are so grateful to all of you for being there for us and for bringing some good news to this whole nightmare. Please extend my Thanks to Nick who first visited with us, Candace, Vicki and Mr. Darras as well. You are all a wonderful team and words really can not say enough. May you all have a very Merry Christmas.”- Mike P.
Many thanks and all the best to you!
“Dearest Frank, I owe you a big thank you! You were so kind to talk to me and walk me through the application process as I was helping my father in law obtain benefits under a Unum Long Term Care policy. Your keen eye helped me see many issues and through your assistance, I was successful in documenting the 90 day elimination period and successful in obtaining some benefits on his policy. The best part is that my father in law has recovered! He is doing super well! I hope I can return the favor someday, although I hope you never need me. You and your staff were incredibly gracious to me and I am indebted to you. Many thanks and all the best to you!”- Linda G. R.
Thank you is such an understatement
“Dear Mr. Darras, Thank you is such an understatement for what you and your staff have done for me. You are the true heroes. Bless you all forever. Eternally grateful.”- Barbara R.
Thank you thank you thank you!
“Dear Darras team, Thank you thank you thank you! I can’t even begin to thank you enough for all your hard work and everything everyone has done to help bring resolution to my claim. God bless you and your families.”- Jeff H.
You have a very kind heart.
“I Just picked up my settlement check. Thank you so much for everything you have done. It was so sweet of you to waive the costs. You have a very kind heart.”- Phyllis E.
My hat is off to all of you.
“I just want you to all know how totally impressed I am with your entire group. Frank, thank you for agreeing to take my case. Michael thanks for the strong follow through and especially the guidance at my deposition. And the job the two of you did at the final settlement was incredible. Your really need to see it to believe it – or maybe I should say hear the shouting through the walls. I never knew disability insurance law could be so dramatic. It brings a smile to my face every time I think about it. The main point I want to make is this. I not only appreciate what you did for me; I also know that there are very few firms (if any) that could have accomplished it given the facts with which you had to work. My hat is off to all of you.”- Ted N.
Take a moment to express my gratitude
Dear Jo-Ann, Just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for your part in my case, along with many others who helped bring it to closure. Catherine, Elizabeth, Mr. Darras, as I’m sure there are many more I don’t even know about. Though I hope to express my thanks to each personally I thought for the time being I’d offer this little token of my appreciation and that of my family.- Edie W.
So happy so relieved!
Thank you for being professional caring and effective beyond our expectations. We are so grateful, so happy so relieved! Respectfully and with best wishes for you all.- Jeff F.
Knowledge and expertise were beyond belief.
Dear Mr. Darras, We just wanted to say thank you for your help, your professionalism, knowledge and expertise were beyond belief. This is a little something to say thank you for your wife and children because I know this case must have taken your away from your family for many hours.- Angela & Ralph C.
Thanks so much
Frank, Thanks so much for helping to make our event “The Law As An Art” such a huge success. Many of the students commented that this was the best speaker event that they have attended on campus! One other student organization leader asked how did I “pull off” getting such a high profile attorney….My reply… “it’s nice to have connections.” Thanks again,- Princess
Very kind and thoughtful
Frank, I’m so glad you have such a wonderful person like Susan in your office. She was so very kind and thoughtful to me when she was handling my case. Susan would call me and tell me what was happening, she really changed my life. Thank you again- Robert
Did your job to the upmost perfection!
Dear Mr. Darras & staff, I just want to say thank you for the wonderful job you did in representing me. I am so very happy with the outcome of my case. You did your job to the upmost perfection! I can’t say thank you enough. Sincerely,- Julie R.
Thankful for such positive results
Mr. Frank Darras, We have had a very positive and supportive experience with your staff since November 2003. We would especially acknowledge the great support of Susan and team. We are very thankful for such positive results 3 weeks after our mediation. Thank you for your guidance,- Ingrid and Allan
If it wasn't for all of you!
Frank, Jo-Ann and Heather, If it wasn’t for all of you! I can’t tell you what this means to me. I have changed my mind about lawyers, you are great. Thanks,- Kathy F.
It was a pleasure working with your law firm!
Thank you for your expertise and persistence with my case! I really appreciate all of your time and effort it was a pleasure working with your law firm!- Kristina G.
Well beyond your own expectations.
Mr. Darras and Susan, You both helped my parents with their successful lawsuit against Conseco/Washington National Insurance last year. I regret to tell you that my father, Curt, passed away. Months before he passed, he was very satisfied to know that their insurance company was accountable and had to pay for their bad behavior. I want to tell you about another lovely thing that you did for our family. You both put together “resumes”, of sorts, for my parents. At a memorial for my father, I wanted to have a slide show of photos so that folks could remember him. Well, I looked at the “resumes” that you prepared and I decided that everyone should see them. In an impromptu eulogy for my father I repeated much of what we captured in those few slides. It turned out to be very moving for everyone. So you succeeded very well in making people “aware of what amazing people [my] parents are” – probably well beyond your own expectations. Thank you for your help and the personal touch. Fondly,- Pete K.
May God bless you and your firm.
Dear Mr. Frank Darras & Firm: I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for helping me with my claim. I know it wasn’t very much, but through my illness I have learned it’s not the big things that count, but the smaller things that matter the most. May God bless you and your firm. May you continue to be a blessing to others. Sincerely yours,- Sheila O.
You are truly angels in my life.
To everyone who helped me at Frank DarrasLaw, Thank you so very much for your kind and gracious help in my disability battle with Fortis Assurant. You brought my life back to me and I will never be able to thank you enough. You are truly angels in my life. Sincerely,- Jill V.
Thank you for all your hard work!
To Socorro, Thank you for all your hard work! I can’t tell you how much this has helped us! Please also pass on my thanks to Heather and Jo-Ann. You all have been really wonderful! Thanks again,- Sandra W.
Literally change my life.
I want to let all of you at DarrasLaw know how much it has meant to me for your hard work on my case. And you know this will literally change my life. Sincerely, Sincerely,- Tom R.
You are the #1 law firm.
Dearest Frank, Dearest Heather and Everyone at DarrasLaw, You believed in me and helped me though a very difficult time. This “thank you note” holds more appreciation than any words can say. You are the #1 law firm and you’re among the nicest people I have ever known. You are in my everyday prayers. Thank you again. God bless you all.- Fay S.
The Lone Ranger still rides!
Thanks Frank!!! The Lone Ranger still rides! That’s you my friend! Sincerely,- William L.
You are truly a gift to mankind.
Dear Frank, Thank you very much for deducting the 1500 from the total amount I owed you. I appreciate it more than you will ever know. Over the past 7 years it has been comforting to me to know you would be the person to represent me if trouble should ever arise. You are truly a gift to mankind. With all my heart thank you, for all that you did for me and other people in my position. Peace and blessings,- Sherry H.
Thank you for all the help
Thank you for all the help provided and keeping the line of communication open. Sincerely,- Martha R.
Appreciate your relentless efforts
Frank N. Darras I thoroughly appreciate your relentless efforts in winning my case. May God continue to bless and guide each of you. Sincerely,- Moses B.
Dear Mr. Darras, I recall your personal and extraordinary empathetic kindness as well as extensive individual time and concern over Banker’s life difficulties. What expertise! Caring for all contingencies with admirable resolution. Gratefully, Gratefully,- Patricia C.
hank you and your very helpful staff
Frank, Thank you and your very helpful staff for the settlement check from Unum Insurance Co. You were my last hope for getting anything from Unum. Regards,- Pita R.
They hate to see you coming!
When “Thank You” is not enough. I cannot begin to tell you guys and gals what you have done for my wife and me. Feeling like we were tossed aside or just a figure on somebody’s bottom line was a very hurtful feeling. Having the stroke and the fear of it all were hard enough, but having you hard work (20 years) mean nothing when you really need it, makes what DarrasLaw does, so special. Please enjoy the holiday season; knowing you did well for the little guy, and some not so little. Thank you so much!! Please, never give up what you are doing. We so depend on your firm to keep them in check. They hate to see you coming! Much Love,- Sharon and Donald S.
You are the best!
To attorneys Frank Darras, Susan, and all who assisted with my recent case with Unum Provident. I would like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful job that you did in my recent lawsuit with Unum Provident. Thanks also for the patience, kindness and support during this stressful process. It is a great relief to know that I won’t have to deal with those people anymore. You are the best! I have enclosed a photo of myself and my husband Ed, taken last Christmas. Once again thank you so much for all your hard work and for being there for me, I can’t thank you enough. Sincerely,- Yvonne K.
No words to describe
To all at DarrasLaw, THANK YOU!!!! You have made me so happy, you cannot know what I have been though in the past 3 years and to find someone out there who does care is a bright light in my days of darkness. When all seemed lost you were found. The greatest joy I have felt in the past 3 years (only second to the check I can now deposit) was answering the phone and speaking to an angel, Heather Conner, who stated “Hello this is Heather Conner of DarrasLaw, Mr. Darras and I are ON BOARD” you cannot know the feeling I had! I was in tears and she handled this so professionally. I felt it necessary to try to say something but there are no words to describe what this means to me. I will always remember the name of Heather and Frank as angels and be thankful that you have done such a meaningful thing for me. I don’t know what else to say. God Bless you ALL P.S. when you are asked what you do for a living reply with the following: We save lives because this is what we do. Thank you all again,- Dave
Thank you for taking the risk
Dear friends @ DarrasLaw, Thank you for taking the risk of accepting my case, for the excellent service and kindness of your professional staff, for making this ordeal so painless and for not letting me stay down because I couldn’t get up without your help. Sincerely,- Carol W.
Sensitive and understanding.
Hi Frank, You’ve been on my mind. I understand from your explanations that I have to be careful. Also I am no longer afraid because I have you on my side. My worries and thoughts are changing into ideas and possibilities for me as I go forward, because of you. It is so rare to meet a man like you, so powerful yet still so sensitive and understanding.- Leslie
Your office is the very best
Thank you and all the staff that helped me with UNUM. Your office is the very best that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Very nice staff and prompt. Please thank everyone that helped me! Thanks so much!- Rebecca K.
We are so grateful and so thankful.
Dear Mr. Darras, I understand and I do see the hard work that went into the last few days, I’m sure, prepping for our case and the mediation. But, before that even, working with Heather and Socorro and Catherine throughout this whole timeframe was heartwarming. It’s such a testament to you and your staff and your office and the services that you guys provide. Because there were days, literally, that I would call up there and do nothing but cry and get no words out. They listened and they tolerated and made me at least feel like somebody out there understood. So, thank you for that. Thank you for not taking my file and just pushing it over to somebody else. Thank for maintaining your involvement in it. Thank you for everything that you did. It didn’t go unnoticed. We are so grateful and so thankful. Thank you so much, so much for everything that you’ve done. God bless you and your staff. Certainly, my husband and myself my family we certainly do thank you and appreciate you. Take care thank you so much.- Cindy T
Upfront about the possible outcomes
Dear Mr. Darras: I wanted to write this letter to personally say thank you for your representation and settlement of my recent case with Prudential Insurance. Your team of professionals have been at all times respectful, responsive to my inquiries, and most recently, compassionate in regards to the recent news of my father. I have either personally spoken to or by email Heather, Socorro, Catherine, and Jo-Ann. Their attitude and professionalism not only says so much about them individually, but also about DarrasLaw. I spent almost 20 years in the corporate world and personally ran a staff of 30 people. I know that when your staff is happy and believes in the person they work for it’s transferred to every client they touch. These last years have been a very difficult transition for me. All my life, I had been very active living it. I stood out in my work, always noticed and recognized. I stood out in my community whether it be in developing business skills or just loving those children who didn’t have parents. Beyond the physical impairments, the deterioration of my cognitive abilities has been the hardest to deal with. Life with fibromyalgia is not easy, as even today, this letter took the help of my husband, who helped me formulate my thoughts into a coherent and concise statement. Most importantly I wanted to write to you about Heather who, as you know, held my hand and walked with me through this. Heather’s kindness, compassion and respect for me as a person is what helped me withstand this long, arduous process. She kept me updated on all news and responses from Prudential, all the while re-affirming her belief in me. She understood on those dates that she talked with me when I may not have been clear-minded and able to express myself. She always made sure I understood the details and took extra time to explain what would be needed. She always represented herself and you in a professional manner, but never forgot the emotional element of my case. I always believed from day one that Heather was upfront about the possible outcomes of my case, both good and bad. She built an immediate trust between us, and was knowledgeable about my case, and cases like this. Each time she called me, she was updating me – I did not have to update her. With DarrasLaw, I never felt like a number, or just another case. Although I would hope that no one I know would ever need help in a case like mine, I want you to know that I would recommend you and your staff without hesitation. Thank you again for the difference you made in my life. My Sincere Appreciation,- Carolyn B.
You made my day!
Heather, We are finally getting settled in New York, on Long Island. I want to thank you for all your dedication and hard work you and your staff did on our behalf to settle this case against CIGNA. Also I recall all the firms I called or emailed for over a month, with no firm but yours willing to take my case. I remember the excitement I felt when all the hard work I did finally, would be represented. You made my day! I especially want to thank you for foregoing the fees you incurred and generously absorbing these charges on my behalf. It will help! We greatly appreciate, and will be using that money for ourselves, not for expenses. Once again thank you for improving our lives,- Tommy & Pat R.
Dear Frank, THANK YOU! Those two words are appropriate but barely begin to convey our gratitude. OK…OK! I’m thinking good thoughts (as much as possible). Or, I’ll come to Ontario or Laguna Beach at your behest. Or anything else. Sandy joins me in wishing you all good things.- Chuck A.
Appreciate your hard work
Dear Frank Darras, I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your hard work on my behalf. I know you and your staff did the very best you could with a difficult case. Again, I just want to express my sincere gratitude for all your help. Thank you. Sincerely,- Arthur M.
Dear Frank and Heather: Who would have ever thought that you could get disability insurance on a retroactive basis? I didn’t even think of it and when you and Heather suggested it at our initial meeting, I was skeptical, at the very least. Needless to say, Aetna has agreed to pay me full disability going back to the retroactive date Heather had suggested we use, which is beyond my wildest dreams in terms of the overall benefit being paid by Aetna. I want to thank you both, once again, for the wonderful counseling you gave me. Please take the enclosed gift as a small token of my appreciation (the blue ribbon is for Frank and the pink is for Heather). Once again, thank you so much for your wisdom and counsel. Best Regards. Sincerely,- Steven Y.
Knowledge, professionalism and grace
First of all, I want to thank you for accepting my case against Lincoln when I first came to you in 2009. Words can’t begin to express how grateful I am to you. You are so fortunate to work amongst such individuals that represent your firm so honorably. Socorro was so patient and sympathetic to me through all my phone calls and emails to her; Katherine was so detailed and helpful; Jo-Ann kept me well informed; and Lissa just amazed me with her knowledge, professionalism and grace. I am truly grateful to Lissa for the amazing job she did in settling my case. It was beyond what I ever expected. But you Heather, you allowed the opportunity for me to close this chapter in my life, and begin again. I included 5 tin-cans of my FAVORITE chocolate chip cookies for each of you. I hope you enjoy, and that you savor each bite with a smile. God bless you all! Sincerely,- Leonor A.
Thank you, for giving me a new start.
To the staff of DarrasLaw: First and foremost thank you from the top of my heart. My name is Jeannette in 2009 Unum did an injustice to me. At that time I was unable to work due to back issues. They stopped my benefits without warning, leaving me homeless, without medical attention and medicines, depressed does not come close to what I felt. Unum made me feel worthless, like I was a liar, and a lazy nothing. Suicide crossed my mind many times. But I was not going to let Unum get my soul too. They had taken everything else. And Lord and behold a TV commercial changed everything. Hope is a bright word when you have it, but a very dark one when you don’t. When Mrs. Susan Grabarsky called to tell me that we had won, all I could do was praise God and DarrasLaw. To all who worked on my case from day one showed me the utmost respect, kindness and humility, and I can say I never received that from Unum. I am writing this letter to all at DarrasLaw. Never lose the compassion that was showed to me. It may be a big company that you go up against but it’s that one lone person that has lost hope that you work for. Proverbs 13:12 –Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. Thank you, for giving me a new start.- Jeanette M.
Thanks again to all of you
To Frank & Team, Thanks so much for winning me a settlement from this ignorant insurance company that has only their self-interest at heart. They take your premiums for years then dump you for no good reason. I found your law firm on the internet after a local law firm said I had no case. It makes you wonder how many more people are getting the same treatment. I know my limitations and will continue to work part-time as long as I can. This settlement will help pay off some bills. Thanks again to all of you at DarrasLaw, you have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!- Joseph S.
Again thank you so very much.
Hello I want to thank everyone that has been involved in this case. It’s a shame you have to go through all of this to receive the money you are entitled to. I hope someday there will be someone that puts a stop to how Unum treats people. Again thank you so very much.- Sharletta G.
Watching you in action was a joy to behold!
Dear Frank, Now that my case is a fait accompli, I want to take this opportunity to let you know the profound gratitude and appreciation I feel and the extraordinary admiration I have for you and your wonderful staff. Over the last several years, you were always there for me. You’re compassion and graciousness is only exceeded by your expertise and professionalism. Prior to the battle being joined, you spent countless hours defending my position. In mediation, you surprised me with a totally unexpected gesture of magnanimity. Watching you in action was a joy to behold! Damn, you’re good. It has been a real privilege to have had you by my side and an honor to have known you. I shall be forever grateful.- Dr. Charles
Many blessings to you all,
Dear Mr. Frank N. Darras, THANK YOU! I have to admire people who pursue their chosen career while finding their niche in the marketplace and cornering it. In the process, they are keeping themselves and others gainfully employed. At the same time as these marvelous tasks are being done by them, other people like me are being assisted in the fight against large corporations, righting the wrongs that were done to many and giving us victory from time to time. My most sincere congrats and thanks to all those that were involved in my case. Many blessings to you all,- Lynn G.
Truly met good fortune when your law firm represented me!
Dear Mr. Darras, I truly met good fortune when your law firm represented me! Thank you so much for helping me recover the compensation, which is rightfully mine. But most importantly, I want to extend my gratitude for upholding justice and remembering the “little guy”. Have a happy, healthy and prosperous life!- Bonnie and Dan
I will be running to your team.
Dear All, This letter comes to you with my sincere gratitude to you and the “A” team. I particularly want to thank Heather and bless Lissa for the excellent preparation and representation they have done for the success of my case. I want you to know that if ever I need such kind of help in the future, I will be running to your team. Likewise, if ever there is someone I know who happens to be in a similar situation as mine, I will tell them to contact your team as soon as possible. Thank you very much!- Barry G.
Constant professionalism and compassion
Dear Frank Darras and Team, Sorry if this letter is so late. I wanted to write it ages ago. I really appreciate not only the great work you did for me, but also the constant professionalism and compassion that you exhibited to me which was wonderful. God bless you and thank you!- Karen N.
I cannot thank you enough for all you have given us in this case.
Dear Mr. Darras. First of all, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you have done for me, and my family. When we first met to discuss my case, I told you that you were my last hope in resolving my disability insurance payment issues. There were many challenges that were met throughout the entire process, and I truly believe that you did an outstanding job in representing me. I believe that you have given me the best possible outcome from the little that I had given you to work with. We could not have possibly accomplished everything that we did without the representation from you and your firm. To even take the step further and give back to us some of what we owe you is truly incredible. I cannot thank you enough for all you have given us in this case.- Pat S.
You have turned a miserable ordeal into a victory.
Dear Everyone, I just wanted to thank each and every one of you who worked on my case one more time. You have turned a miserable ordeal into a victory. You were successful and I am in awe! I am extremely grateful and cannot thank you enough.- Liz P.
All of this, because of you.
Dear Mr. Darras, Please forgive the delay in this Thank You. Without your efforts, support and genuine affection for my mom and her dilemma with her insurance company, no one would have known her story, her struggle or her legacy; which is, if you trust in God he will fight your battle and make your rough places smooth. He sent you to do just that and I will always be forever grateful and thankful to you and your staff. Words cannot express, only my heart knows how much I appreciate your kind words at my mom’s home going. I have her funeral service on video, the Los Angeles Times & AARP articles and her story on DVD with Channel 7 U.S. News & World Report. All of this, because of you. You did not have to but you did. May God continue to bless your firm in ways you never thought were possible.- Ms. Smith
Thank You for the peace of mind I have now.
Dear Mr. Darras Thank You for the peace of mind I have now. I have turned to many, many firms, just to have been turned away with no hope of ever getting any resolve or closure.- Donna S.
Thank you for giving me hope
Dear Mr. Darras I can’t thank you enough for all your time and effort you put into my case. I know it wasn’t easy with ERISA. You made the experience tolerable and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. Thank you for giving me hope with my neck. Seeing you and hearing your story gives me hope for the future. Your story impacted me in a positive way and I wish you health and happiness always.- Renee Y.
Due to your exquisite help,
Dear Mr. Darras I am towards the end of my saga with the insurance company. Hopefully it will be a happy end, and in no little measure this is all due to your exquisite help, given to me in troubled times. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you did for me, now that I’m looking forward to entering the wildest episode of my life…the maturity! May God bless you and all your people as you help other needy human beings. I wish you a wonderful Christmas season and my best wishes to accompany you and your families in the New Year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.- Georgio L.
You are the true heroes.
Dear Mr. Darras Thank you is such an understatement for what you and your staff have done for me. You are the true heroes. Bless you all forever.- Barbara R.
I would like to express my deep gratitude
Dear Mr. Darras I would like to express my deep gratitude for generous gift of time and counsel during our recent phone conversation. I have sent you a small token of appreciation but they did not offer an area to create a note. If you receive an edible present in the next week or so without a note, maybe without a sender, please consider it a small gesture of my appreciation.- William S. MD
I can't thank you enough.
Dear Mr. Darras I can’t thank you enough for taking on my case. I know you felt the anger and pain I felt toward my insurer and for that I can’t thank you enough. I want to tell you how happy I was working with Lissa Martinez on my case. She did an outstanding job mediating and I am thrilled with the outcome. But besides the monetary outcome that the company had to pay as their acknowledgment of wrongful denial, by doing so it has helped me to bring closure to this experience in my life. I am grateful to you and your firm, but especially to you! You are the person with the passion to help others and I will always remember your kindness and help. I can’t thank you enough.- Roberto
Thank you for providing me the opportunity
Dear Mr. Darras Thank you. Thank you for establishing the Frank N. Darras Moot Court Competition. Thank you for providing me the opportunity to participate in a forum that focuses on disability law and thank you for the prizes you awarded our efforts. Participating in Moot Court last weekend was one of the most rewarding experiences of my law school education. When I decided to go to law school after so many years out of academia, it was because I got tired of saying “That’s not right” when I saw people being treated unfairly. It is such a pleasure that in my last month of classes I have been able to come full circle participating in a moot court competition focusing on disability law, the type of law I want to practice. It was an honor to meet you and argue in front of you. I will be taking the Bar in July and hope to work with you in the future.- Robin S.
I can't say enough good about this firm
I have nothing but praise for DarrasLaw. They excelled in every aspect one can imagine: experience, timeliness, and overall effectiveness. My DarrasLaw attorney was very knowledgeable, clear, concise, prompt, and more than willing to answer any questions I had. I can’t say enough good about this firm, and in particular the attorney assigned to my case. I thank my lucky stars daily that I was acquainted with them. I am on the east coast and they are on the west coast and were much better, more prompt and more effective than my local attorney (please don’t concern yourself with distance). I would definitely highly recommend this firm with the utmost confidence that you would be in the very best hands possible!- Monica B
I would highly recommend them as lawyers
Darras Law was very thorough in its assistance in my case. They let me know from the beginning what to expect, and were always available to answer any questions or concerns I might have. They were knowledgable about the law and what I was going through. There are many different lawyers there, and if one couldn’t answer something, they directed me to another that could in their firm. I would highly recommend them as lawyers to assist in anyone’s insurance case.- Jennifer S.
They deserve to be rated as one of the best law firms
My experience with Darras Law Firm was very positive. Besides being very professional they are very caring and thoughtful. Any questions or concerns received a prompt response. They kept me informed of the progress of my case the entire time. They deserve to be rated as one of the best law firms and I highly recommend them.- Lewis P.
By far the best attorney
Frank Darras has to be by far the best attorney I have ever worked with. His firm is very professional, and I found that everyone was as invested in my well-being as I was. All of the people who I worked with spoke very highly of him and how pleasant it was to work for his firm. That spoke volumes to me.- Anonymous
I highly recommend Mr. Darras and DarrasLaw without reservations.
Mr. Darras represented me against my private disability insurance carrier. It had been over three years of unsuccessful efforts of my own. DarrasLaw was very clear and precise in what they needed from me in terms of records and documentation, and were amazingly efficient in preparing the final brief with the information they gathered. They worked with my doctors, and obtained clarity that was never present. I highly recommend Mr. Darras and DarrasLaw without reservations.- Ray H.
I feel very fortunate that Darras Law represented me in my disability claim
I feel very fortunate that Darras Law represented me in my disability claim. Everyone I worked with there was very professional, accessible and a pleasure to work with. That’s especially true of founder Frank Darras.- Anonymous

Attorney Frank Darras & Law Firm,
I wish to thank you for your excellent services I received while you represented me in a Disability case. There are no words to describe on how grateful I am to you for the rest of my life. You are not a five star. You definitely are a 10 star.
Heather, you were absolutely great. Thank you! Entire staff were remarkable! Attorney Darras, I was truly blessed I was directed to your firm. Not only are you extremely brilliant disability lawyer but very gifted with your knowledge on winning cases over cases in and out of the countries.
For the public, call or write Darras Law Firm. There is a free consultation. Thank you for truly caring about me and making me feel safe and stress free. I am forever grateful.- Angie C.

Dear Frank, Socorro, heather, Susan and Staff:
From the bottom of our hearts we want to thank you for fighting for us. Our family is truly blessed to have you by our side.
I am extremely pleased with the outcome
To Mr. Darras,
I just wanted to send you a thank you letter, for taking my case initially despite it being such a low amount. But, I do appreciate you and your team for working so diligently on my behalf. I am extremely pleased with the outcome you and your team achieved on my behalf. And, I will definitely recommend you and the people within your legal team to others who need help with a disability claim.
Once again a thank you is not enough for the work you and your team did for me and my family.
Sincerely yours,- Jeff I.
Your firm is the best in the country
“When I saw Frank in action, I began to understand a lot better why your firm is the best in the country. He is so talented that I almost want the case to go to trial just so I can see him shine like the sun in front of a jury.”- Dr. K.M.
I highly recommend Susan
I received a free consultation with Susan Grabarsky and she put all my anxiety about my claim to rest. She cared about my claim and provided important details about the process. She reviewed my Long Term Disability contract and health conditions and gave me information to help me with my successful application. It was clear she was advocating for my best interests regardless of whether or not I became a client. She is very easy to talk to and highly informed about the disability insurance industry. Plus, she provided information about other resources and I enjoyed our conversation as well. I highly recommend Susan!
I felt respected by each person
The high-class individuals at DarrasLaw are very professional. I felt respected by each person. They answer questions with patience and take their time with clients. I contacted several law firms about my case, and they were willing to take my case, but DarrasLaw is the best law firm. Give them a call, and you’ll know that they are professional and fair. I am at peace because I know my case is in the hands of professionals.- M.K.
