I have 43 years of experience, and specialize in the field of insurance claims handling with specific knowledge in the areas of claims handling, coverage issues and bad faith. I have published on such topics as workers’ comp, arson, wildfires, lead paint, mold and asbestos. I have testified 20 times on topics such as workers’ comp, wildfire smoke, commercial liability, pollution coverages and mold. I have handled about 600 cases as an expert witness or consultant, out of which only about 20 went to trial. The remaining cases settled after I had explained the claims handling issues and coverage issues to the parties involved.
