The Firm offers services to some of the leading insurance companies throughout the United States. The Firm is sensitive to the special billing requirements and rate structures of most insurance carriers.
Partners David Kosakoff and Annalee Cataldo-Barile lead the Firm's Insurance Defense Department. Mr. Kosakoff has more than 30 years experience handling a wide range of general liability and professional liability claims through insurance companies. His extensive trial experience is a testament to the confidence that insurance carriers place in his ability. That confidence has been rewarded by favorable results at both the trial and appellate levels.
