  • Ronald Christopher Peil

    I endorse this lawyer. I got to know Phil in a weekend retreat we both attended. I found his specialty particularly interesting because at one time or another, almost everyone will do business with an insurance carrier. He describes his practice representing insurance carriers with much confidence and authority. Phil represents insurance companies in the prosecution of subrogation Claims. In his 35 years of practice, Phil has recovered several million dollars for the insurance carriers he has represented. With his long experience and excellent track record, Phil is an obvious choice for an insurance carrier seeking to recover on a subrogation claim.
