Nate’s practice focuses on insurance coverage and bad faith litigation, commercial litigation, general liability litigation and professional liability litigation. He represents insurance companies, contractors, policy holders, global corporations, insurance adjusters, business owners, insurance agents and professionals. He handles all aspects of insurance-related litigation, from defending auto liability claims to drafting coverage opinions, advising and defending insurers in bad faith litigation, defending large corporations, advising and defending insurers in UM/UIM litigation, litigating declaratory judgment actions and advising /defending insurers when policy holders enter million dollar Morris or Damron Agreements.
Nate works with clients that insist on doing things “the right way”. He believes that early case analysis, accurate estimation of litigation costs, frequent client communication and honest recommendations are critical to effective legal representation and client satisfaction. A client must be provided information early and updated often to determine whether to litigate a matter through mediation, arbitration, dispositive motions or trial—or whether to make a merit-based or business decision to settle a case early for a fraction of litigation costs.
Nate also keeps his clients abreast of the latest developments in Arizona insurance bad faith, coverage and UM/UIM law by providing timely summaries and analyses of recent Arizona Supreme Court and Court of Appeals decisions.
