Insurance

Our attorneys represent a variety of insureds in construction defect, real property, business and tort claims. We also represent surety companies and their principals in construction and bond related litigation. Our firm is experienced in assessing and litigating insurance coverage and bad faith claims. We use creativity and our expertise to find coverage for claims where other attorneys cannot, and use insurance in disputed coverage situations to settle claims that would otherwise not settle.

Notable Cases:

  • Successfully represented plaintiff on appeal and in later trial court proceedings and established  that California law did not allow an insurer to argue that insured’s negligence excused insurer’s obligation to pay covered loss.  Tuchman v. Aetna, 44 Cal. App. 4th 1607 (1996).
