Insurance Defense

Our attorneys are routinely called upon to defend insureds in a wide variety of civil litigation cases all over the United States and abroad.  Our cases range from small property damage claims to complex personal injury lawsuits, and we have covered sensitive cases such as school cheating scandals and medical privacy violations.  Regardless of the size or complexity of a claim, our attorneys are mindful of the cost of litigation and work to resolve claims before litigation is necessary. Prior to litigation, our attorneys employ various dispute resolution alternatives, including mediation. If alternatives prove unsuccessful, our attorneys are well equipped for litigation and will vigorously defend insureds, utilizing fee-shifting tactics when appropriate.  While most cases can typically be resolved short of litigation, we are not afraid to try a case.

In recent years, we defended against a first-party subrogation lawsuit where the other insurer resisted all reasonable settlement efforts and insisted on going to trial.  After obtaining a defense verdict for our client, the trial court awarded us in excess of $230,000 in attorneys’ fees from the plaintiff.
