Car insurance form with pen and glasses on the table.Insurance coverage poses complex issues, and we are problem solvers. We constantly execute new, evolving strategies to deliver optimal results to our clients. We know how to minimize, and regularly stop, excessive exposure to plaintiffs’ attorneys’ fees claims. Very few lawyers can say they have won jury trials defending an insurance company. William Clayton can. The insurance defense litigation and trial team at Clayton Trial Law LP has the skill and expertise needed to successfully handle insurance defense and coverage cases involving all types of insurance policies and claims.

Highly Skilled Team of Professionals

If you are tired of slow, delayed, tedious, and expensive ways of having your insurance company defended in court, your answer is here. This team has experience in representing insurance companies in evaluating, investigating and litigating insurance disputes with homeowners and commercial insureds with losses claimed to be caused by:

  • Windstorm, hurricane
  • Sinkhole
  • Flood
  • Water leaks
  • Water mitigation
  • Fire, arson
  • Burglary, theft, vandalism
  • Mold
  • Collapse
  • Bodily injury

We Employ Aggressive Strategies for Outstanding Results and Values

Our insurance litigation team employs cost-effective, aggressive litigation strategies to obtain outstanding value for our clients in both legal and administrative forums – by securing early dismissal of cases, defending our clients against complaints filed with the Department of Financial Services (Civil Remedy Notice or “CRN”), winning summary judgments, or winning defense verdicts at trial.

We regularly deploy motions to compel appraisals and proposals for settlement (in federal court, offers of judgments) to cut-off fee claims, which too often drive insurance disputes.

Full Spectrum of Policy and Third Party Claims

Our substantial experience allows us to provide objective and realistic assessments of potential liability arising out of insurance claims associated with:

  • Bad faith or extra-contractual litigation
  • Insurance coverage options
  • Assignment of benefits (AOB)
  • Renters Insurance
  • Bodily injury
  • Directors and officers
  • Commercial General Liability
  • Title insurance

We Tirelessly Work from the Beginning to End

We are well versed in defeating claims outright or by limiting recovery of damages, including punitive damages and attorneys’ fees.

We can easily try your case before a jury — we have the extensive expertise to handle insurance defense trials.
