I am dedicated to working on behalf of you, the home or business owner, to protect your interests in the event of a loss. Let my experience in claims handling navigate the often-complicated world of insurance polIcies. WE DO NOT WORK FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES! WE ONLY WORK FOR YOU! By utilizing our extensive knowledge and experience, we analyze your coverage and assess your damages. I then present the findings to your insurance company in order to provide a settlement that fairly covers your loss and facilitates your repair efforts. 

Why hire a public adjuster


When a Home or Commercial property are lost to fire, hurricane, water or other incidents, the process of steering insurance claims and recovering may be difficult and emotionally draining. Moreover, without the expertise in properly filing a claim, consumers often are at an extreme disadvantage. 

· The primary reason a Public Adjuster is hired is to help the policyholder fully recover from their insurance company, for all covered damages sustained in the event of a loss.

· Public Adjusters inspect all areas to demonstrate the entire impact of the loss-producing event. 

· Public Adjusters will typically be more complete in their damage analysis than their insurance company counterparts and because they do not receive any fees until policyholders receive their claims reimbursement. 

· Public Adjusters share a similar interest with the policyholder in achieving the most accurate comprehensive claim payment possible, and in an expedited manner that results in payments to policyholders.

After Disaster Strikes The Public Adjuster

  • Helps the policyholder fulfill all obligations      placed upon them by the insurance policy conditions entitled, “Duties in      the Event of Loss”.
  • Provides direction concerning reasonable and necessary mitigation efforts.
  • Provides direction to preserve evidence , photos  and video of the scene to capture much of the damage moments after the loss.
