Insurance Defense

Insurance law can be both intricate and involved, but our attorneys have the in-depth understanding of the relevant regulations and practices needed to represent insurers effectively. Our experience in insurance defense litigation includes the following:

  • Medical malpractice defense
  • Automobile accident defense
  • Products liability
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Class actions

We have successfully defended physicians in a range of complex medical malpractice cases, examples of which can be found on our trials and verdicts page.  We routinely defend insured drivers in automobile accident cases. We have also represented insurance companies in automobile accident cases involving such issues as coverage disputes, uninsured motorist claims, and underinsured coverage claims. For an in-depth discussion of our insurance defense practice, please see the Insurance Defense page.

Other Practice Areas

Our firm also has a strong background in personal injury, real estate, and contract law. We represent plaintiffs who have been seriously injured in auto, trucking, motorcycle, and slip and fall accidents. In addition, we represent surviving family members who have lost loved ones in wrongful death actions.

Furthermore, our lawyers represent clients in various real estate and contractual matters, such as residential and commercial real estate transactions, real estate and contract litigation, and contractual negotiations and disputes. We also represent professionals, including doctors and medical practices, in providing specialized  advice to meet their unique needs. We often advise physicians and medical practices regarding specific issues such as physician patient privilege, confidentiality matters, ethical problems, conflict issues, and employment matters.
