On behalf of the many outstanding Member Firms of Your House Counsel®, welcome!

Your House Counsel® Member Firms have a long-standing tradition of and reputation for excellence in Insurance and Corporate Liability Defense. As the Your House Counsel® Group Chair, I have the pleasure of working with attorneys who concentrate their practices in a number of spheres, from Admiralty and Maritime Law to Workers’ Compensation. Despite our varied practices, I’m proud to say that we take every opportunity to exchange ideas and tactics and call upon each other’s specific experiences and skill sets in order to benefit our clients. In addition, our individual practice group chairs serve not only as a point of contact for clients, but also for Members seeking advice in specific practice areas.

The bar is set high for our Member Firms and attorneys. Collectively we have successfully managed, resolved, and defended thousands of claims—from minor incidents to catastrophic accidents. Yet while all of our Member Firms excel, we constantly strive to be more—more responsive, more accountable, more committed—as we work to provide our clients with premier legal services on a local and regional basis across the United States.

I am proud to serve as the Your House Counsel® Group Chair and proud of my association with such an outstanding group of firms and lawyers. Our membership truly lives up to the Your House Counsel® motto because each and every Member Firm is “The One To Turn To” for Insurance and Corporate Liability Defense claims in their respective jurisdictions across the U.S.

I welcome your questions and the opportunity to tell you more about Your House Counsel® and how we can provide you with a national solution for quality legal representation.
