Professional Liability Defense Attorneys
Representing Registered Professionals in Liability Claims
We combine years of experience litigating standard of care issues applicable to licensed professionals with our extensive knowledge of insurance law to defend clients in professional liability claims. Our lawyers have collectively tried more than one hundred cases to jury verdict and arbitrated hundreds more. This experience has led to an advanced understanding of how to prosecute and defend the issue of "damages," a central issue in every case brought against a licensed professional. Our law firm represents all types of licensed professionals:
- Insurance Agents
- Most other registered or licensed professionals throughout Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, New Mexico and Utah.
Professional liability can involve many different types of insurance policies, each with its own terms, conditions, rights, obligations, and deadlines for timely compliance. We can quickly determine the applicability of certain policies, conditions for triggering a particular policy, and issues that need to be addressed immediately. Our familiarity with insurance defense and professional liability gives us insight into the unique provisions these policies often contain. For example, a policy may contain a depleting limits provision, it might be conditioned on a self-insured retention, the client may have the right to consent to a settlement, or the policy might restrict the client's right to a jury trial.
You can rely on our Arizona professional liability team to provide an efficient and insightful evaluation of your situation. Many times, the firm can provide an initial analysis of a case and advise whether a case is worth pursuing, defending, or tendering to the appropriate entity for a flat fee. We translate complex matters into simple, straightforward information on which you can base sound decisions. Together, we can develop an effective plan for resolving your dispute.
