Calming The Storm And Pursuing Full Recovery
In Bad Faith Insurance Matters

Businesses, and their directors and officers, rely on insurance policies to mitigate their risks, defend lawsuits and otherwise protect their interests. Too often, when the time comes for an insurance company to pay or provide a defense, rather than promptly meet its obligations, the insurance company delays and looks for ways not to pay. These bad faith tactics cannot only be frustrating, they can damage your company and threaten your people even more than they already have been. Choosing the right advocate—a seasoned policyholder advocate, familiar with insurance law and the insurance industry—can make all the difference. Attorney Orin H. Lewis is an experienced insurance law litigator whose goal is to facilitate the prompt resolution and payment of claims through negotiation or mediation, if feasible, but who stands ready and more than willing to arbitrate or prosecute a matter in court when necessary to get you the defense or full recovery you deserve.
