  • Heather Kubiak

    Amy Stewart and I worked together on an directors' and officers' insurance coverage matter that arose out of a bankruptcy. I represented the primary insurer, and Amy represented the excess insurer. Amy's work was exceptional for three reasons. (1) Amy works well as a team player and is incredibly responsive to her clients and her team. (2) Amy's vast experience in the insurance coverage area allowed her to efficiently cut to the key issues in the case. Finally, (3) Amy cares about reaching the truth and a fair outcome of an issue. Amy's work on this case ultimately led to a favorable settlement of a complicated and difficult case. I highly recommend Amy Stewart for complex litigation.
