Additional Information

I offer over 30 years of experience in litigated commercial and personal lines claims handling and case management. I am a former Senior Litigation Specialist with thorough knowledge of carrier best practices and their specific application to the duty to investigate, the duty to defend, and the duty to indemnify. For the last 15 years I have specialized in commercial casualty insurance coverage and how appropriate insurance best practices relate to construction defect claims as well as commercial premises liability claims. I have personally attended over 1000 mediations and settlement conferences in litigated matters as a carrier representative. I have experience and training in giving deposition and trial testimony.
