We provide a strong, experienced defense of the insured by working closely with the carrier to develop a practical, cost-effective litigation strategy including well-considered claim evaluation We also represent insurers in prosecuting or defending declaratory judgment actions and other disputes concerning actual coverage. Discovery is supervised by a partner but handled whenever possible by our experienced paralegal staff to minimize costs. We utilize investigators and experts in various fields as needed and maintain strong litigation support relationships.
Although we have a successful trial record, we recognize that most lawsuits are resolved before trial. That resolution usually occurs in a formal mediation session. Mediation is mandatory in both our local and federal courts and we develop effective mediation strategies that have successfully resolved many difficult cases. Members of the firm are also certified mediators in both the federal and local courts.
