For nearly three decades, Demler, Armstrong & Rowland has been a leader in the field of insurance bad faith, representing various carriers in litigation arising under commercial, homeowner, auto, life and disability policies. The firm has handled bad faith matters in California in both state and federal courts, and has also successfully defended insurers in the Courts of Appeal and the Supreme Court. We have also defended insurers in bad faith litigation in a wide variety of jurisdictions, including Hawaii, Oklahoma, Washington and Nevada.
In California, Demler, Armstrong & Rowland has led the field in bad faith litigation, with a winning track record in better than 90% of its jury trials and appeals. We have also handled complex bad faith litigation arising from natural catastrophes, such as the Northridge Earthquake and Oakland Hills Fire. As a result of this experience, we have developed a broad expertise in the mechanics of proper claims handling and utilize this knowledge to either aggressively defend non-meritorious claims or to counsel early resolution of claims involving potential serious exposure to the client.
In addition to trial work, the firm’s attorneys are available for consultation on problem files. We have also assembled a lecture series on bad faith issues, which is provided to insurer clients free of charge, as a matter of maintaining a “hands on” attorney-client relationship.
