We provide legal counsel to individuals and business owners who are being treated unfairly by their insurance company.

Regardless of the type of dispute, our goal is to provide insurance policyholders with all of the benefits that their insurance companies promised.

Our attorneys represent insurance policyholders in actions against their insurers for breach of contract, bad faith, misrepresentation, reformation and other legal claims. We also represent policyholders on appeal and on a class action basis.

Our experienced team can also assist you with pre-litigation matters such as claim negotiation, examinations under oath (“EUO”) and appraisals. Insurance companies know of our tenacity and willingness to take cases to trial, so we are often successful in resolving disputes without litigation.
