PERSONAL COMMITMENT: Ive worked in large law firms that have platoons of associates and paralegals on a case. I came to conclude that is not the best way to develop a case. It also weakens the bond between the client and the lawyer. When I opened my law firm, I wanted to be able to devote personal attention to each case. So I dont have teams of associates and paralegals running around my office... view profile

Insurance law covers the policies insurance companies can offer and the rates they can charge. Because there are so many different kinds of insurance, a good insurance lawyer is very helpful. Personal insurance standards include auto insurance, health insurance, homeowners insurance, life insurance, and disability insurance. Business insurance standards usually include commercial liability insurance, errors and omissions insurance, malpractice insurance, and business interruption insurance. Each of these policies covers losses from different types of risk, and both the losses and the risks are carefully defined. It can take an insurance lawyer just to determine if your loss resulted from a risk you were insured for. Sometimes insurance companies will deny claims, acting in what is legally called “bad faith.” Insurance lawyers can determine if your insurer is treating you fairly and sue for you if the company is acting in bad faith.
