Insurance defense is the process of legal representation for insurance companies, self-insured entities, and policyholders to resolve disputes. The nature and complexity of insurance claims demand a need for aggressive, effective legal representation. The insurance industry is heavily governed by state and federal regulations, which are frequently subject to change. A skilled and knowledgeable insurance defense attorney remains current with changes in regulations to ensure that insurance policies remain in compliance, lending to favorable outcomes when a claim is filed.
