Knowing the tactics of the opposition is a powerful strategy and an advantage we have in cases against insurance companies. Having represented insurance companies early in his career, founding partner Mike Scanes brings a formidable wealth of knowledge and experience to these cases. This experience is no secret. Other firms and insurance companies often come to us for help analyzing coverage issues or to hire Mike as an expert witness. Moreover, as a former insurance claims adjuster, Joel Shields has intricate knowledge of the insurance field and insurance company methods.

We use our in-depth understanding of the ever-changing complexities of insurance law to represent individuals and businesses—and occasionally insurance companies—in coverage disputes and claims of bad faith and insurance code violations. Just because you have been told you don’t have a case doesn’t mean we’ll say the same. We are aware of the multi-dimensional complexities of these cases, and we’ll peel back the layers to find a way to help you.
