Managing Complex Claims
Not all claims are clear-cut cookie cutter types of claims – which can be challenging.  Atty Scott Wing from Leahy, Eisenberg & Fraenkel will discuss some complex claims that affect our industry.  Scott will share some of the most challenging cases he has worked while teaching you how to properly document all files.

Insurance Appraisal
Unfortunately, homeowners may find themselves disagreeing with the adjuster’s analysis of the claims, where do we go from there?  Every policy has an insurance appraisal clause but many adjusters don’t understand the legal aspects involved.  Attorney Pete Schoonmaker along with Adjuster Jay Payan will bring the ins and outs to this process.   Knowing when to invoke the clause or when to go to arbitration can be challenging, but todays session will help you understand the process.
