Insurance Defense & Coverage

Waldeck & Patterson’s foundation has always been Insurance Defense work.  Starting out with personal lines’ carriers to evolving into Excess and Surplus Lines’ Carriers, the firm has continually practiced in this area representing carriers and their insureds. The firm prides itself in its responsiveness to the claims department and fully appreciates the ever-increasing demands that are on a claim’s adjuster’s desk.  Our attorneys focus on providing timely answers to those adjuster’s questions to help them efficiently do their job. We consider the claims staff part of the team when assigned to represent their insureds. This cooperation and communication helps identify unique solutions to problem issues in a case. Good ideas can come from anyone on the team, and Waldeck & Patterson encourages everyone to actively participate in the defense of matters assigned to the firm.
