Insurance Defense

We frequently represent and advise businesses and insurers in disputed matters.  We defend insurance carriers and their insured in matters of construction defects and products liability alleging property damage. We are frequently involved in matters requiring analysis of shared coverage and time on risk.  With years of collective experience, we have built a reputation for quality legal defense in the insurance industry, making our attorneys recognized names in the area of insurance defense.


Alternative Dispute Resolution (Arbitration & Mediation)

Alternative-Dispute-Resolution Arbitration, mediation or litigation – we are prepared.  Today, alternative dispute resolution is a common means of resolving disputes.  At mediation, we help guide clients as they assess and evaluate the potential risks of trial versus a self-determined resolution outside of court.  Attorney Honeycutt is a certified mediator who is able to resolve conflicts that can be settled out of court.  The perspective of a certified mediator is valuable in analyzing, evaluating, and assessing any dispute and developing the best legal strategies to achieve desired results.

In the area of arbitration, we counsel clients who must present their dispute to a third party neutral for resolution.  Many contracts require mediation and/or arbitration, and many courts require these alternative dispute resolution procedures to reduce burdensome caseloads.  We focus on understanding our clients’ needs so we can best represent their interests before mediators and arbitration panels.
