Rick was excellent. He reviewed the case, assessed the facts and challenged the insurance companies to act in accordance with the provisions of the policy. As a result of his and his teams hard work, we were able to settled the dispute. Without Rick, it would have be a long, protracted David vs. Goliath type case with huge ramifications. I would highly recommend Rick's services with any insurance coverage issue.

I believe in sleeping at night, so as a general contractor I carry a great deal of insurance. Several times in the last 20 years there have been incidents that required us to file an Insurance Claim. Three times they were significant...three times the Insurer denied all or parts of the claim based on coverage or lack thereof. Three times Rick Beal has worked diligently to get us to an acceptable resolution.
I did miss some sleep during those times, because Rick starts his day , while most everyone is sleeping. That is okay because it allowed me to keep doing the things that I needed to do to run my business.
While I hope never to never have another insurance claim, I know who to call first if I do.

Rick has been most responsive and helpful in helping us through a tough battle and has lead his team with great dignity and courage and has explained the case and strategy extremely well. I would not hesitate to recommend and talk to anyone who would like to have my opinion on Rick and his work.

For over 25 years Rick has been one of the most knowledgable and skilled advocates for policyholders in Washington and adjacent states. Rick has exceptional problem solving skills and high ethical standards. I wholeheartedly endorse him.
