The professional reputations of insurance agents and brokers are frequently placed at risk by former clients who regret the well-informed decisions they made with regard to limits and coverages. Such claims generally arise in connection with allegations the agent or broker failed to procure insurance, made negligent misrepresentations or provided negligent advice regarding appropriate limits or coverages.
Successful defense of such professional liability claims require an intimate understanding of the insurance industry which includes a practical and working knowledge of the duties and responsibilities insurance agents and brokers owe to their clients.

Prior to becoming an attorney, Steve worked as an insurance agent and has invaluable first-hand experience in the industry.
