Insurance Law

One of my greatest passions in law is insurance law. We buy insurance to protect us financially when the worst happens. That is why it is so heartbreaking when I hear from clients that they have been paying premiums for years, with no claims, only to be denied a claim when they actually need the help.

The Problem

Most insurance companies pursue profits over their customers. I even have a list of the best and the worst companies that I have compiled over the years and over the hundreds of insurance claims that I have handled. Typically, you get what you pay for with insurance companies. Those that are cheap are cheap for a reason.

My Approach

I have represented hundreds of clients who have been denied coverage or payments by their insurance company in auto claims, including uninsured motorist coverage and personal injury protection, as well as homeowners, health, life, disability, and business insurance, and so much more. Basically, if insurance is involved, I am your attorney. Unlike most law firms that practice in insurance law, I represent clients for all types of private insurance coverage, not just one type of insurance.

As part of my passion for insurance law, I love to give advice to each of my clients (or anyone who is willing to listen, really) about which insurance company and type of coverage is best for their needs. Often, we buy the cheapest insurance with minimal coverage, and that always comes back around to hurt us when we need our insurance company to be on our side. I often work with local independent insurance agents to help my clients find the best coverage. I also teach a regular seminar, “The Ins and Outs of Insurance,” at Whatcom Community College. But I also practice in the following areas:

  • Auto Insurance
  • Uninsured Motorist Claims
  • Personal Injury Protection Claims
  • Property Damage Claims
  • Homeowner’s Insurance
  • Life Insurance
  • Disability Insurance
  • Health Insurance
  • Business Insurance
  • Employment Practices Insurance
  • Malpractice Insurance
  • Directors and Officers Insurance
  • ERISA Claims
  • Vehicle Warranty Claims

Let's Talk About Your Case

At times, your insurance claim may not be right for an attorney. If so, I can give you advice on how to handle the many tricks of the insurance industry on your own. I am more than happy to give a consultation to discuss possible representation.
