Insurance Coverage/Bad Faith


Our representation of insurance carriers in Texas includes analysis of coverage issues and disputes, preparation of coverage opinion letters, preparation of carrier’s reservation of rights letters, pursuing or defending the carrier’s coverage position in declaratory judgment actions, defending bad faith claims, pursuing or defending subrogation actions, and monitoring significant claims or litigation in order to protect the interests of excess carriers.

We routinely handle bad faith insurance disputes, including claims involving uninsured/under insured automobile policies, homeowner’s policies and the Stowers doctrine. We have represented both primary and excess insurers among all first-party and third party commercial and personal coverage lines.

We frequently advise our clients on issues of statutory and common law bad faith, Deceptive Trade Practices Act and claims handling procedures. We have evaluated, tried and when necessary appealed, these first party disputes in state and federal courts throughout Texas.
