Michael started in the hurricane reconstruction industry in 1992 after Hurricane Andrew. While helping property owners to rebuild homes and restore commercial buildings, he experienced time and time again that the Policyholder was being underpaid by their Insurance Company--directly affecting their ability to restore their property. This experience led Michael to become a Public Adjuster, representing the Insured in collecting what they are due.
Michael is skilled in documenting losses and negotiating settlements with Insurance Companies. When a team approach is needed, he brings in additional professionals such as engineers and attorneys to adjust the claim. If necessary he pursues claims into appraisal, mediation or lawsuit, and acts as expert witness for the Insured. Whatever it takes, Michael is committed to collecting for the Policyholder.
