Insurance coverage disputes require sophisticated and experienced counsel. You can benefit from my 30 years of interpreting and enforcing rights under insurance policies. My practice is focused on helping policyholders, both individuals and businesses. I bring to it my background in representing carriers – I understand their perspective and needs – so I know how to settle effectively and quickly, if possible. If not, I know how to litigate to a successful conclusion.
I focus on understanding my client’s goals and developing innovative solutions to achieve the desired results. I combine hard work with creativity in problem solving, whether in negotiation or litigation.
My background in liability cases broadens the base of knowledge and experience I bring to insurance coverage.
I will personally handle your case. I will return your phone calls and emails, and I will be responsive and responsible for your interest.
My goal is to resolve the dispute as early as possible, and my extensive background and litigation experience are invaluable negotiating tools. I have learned to look for the other side’s soft spots, shortcomings, and potential conflicts, and use them to achieve a fair settlement.
if litigation is needed, I am ready. I find the pressure points and key issues that will bring all sides to the table sooner rather than later.
I have practiced law in San Francisco since 1976. I was a lawyer in three downtown law firms, including being a founding partner of Kaufman & Logan from 1987 to 2008. I have been the lead attorney in a wide range of commercial litigation, including insurance coverage, personal injury, products liability, financial, and property disputes.
I have handled a wide variety of civil matters, with an emphasis on insurance coverage litigation. I have extensive experience with insurance and other commercial and business issues. I have trial and appellate experience (including published opinions), and have defended and prosecuted personal injury products liability and negligence cases.
I have worked with many other attorneys and law firms, and maintain relationships with some of the best lawyers in the San Francisco Bay Area and around the country. If needed for your case, I have a deep “address book” of seasoned lawyers to call upon.
