Practice Area Overview

We serve clients in matters involving questions, opinions, and disputes related to insurance coverage, defense of first and third party indemnity claims, claims of breach of contract and, where appropriate, bad faith on the part of insurers. We protect our clients—both insureds and insurers—against the wrongful denial of insurance coverage.

When representing insureds, our attorneys are guided by the knowledge that complex legal issues can often affect multiple claims or policies. What can seem like the stronger argument may be rejected by a carrier because it “proves too much.” Thus, if the carrier is to be convinced to recognize coverage, the task often becomes one of articulating precise and sound distinctions, which clearly establish coverage under the particular facts of our client’s case, but goes no farther.

When the carrier cannot, or will not, agree to coverage, the audience shifts to a third party such as a court or an arbitration panel. Our lawyers are experienced in prosecuting coverage claims in either forum. We are equally versed in handling suits seeking declaratory judgments of the limits of insurance coverage, as well as lawsuits involving allegations of violations of the Texas Insurance Code, bad faith insurance practices, and related causes of action.
