HI there. My name is Leland. It is my passion to help homeowners and business owners navigate the claims process. I really enjoy helping people get every penny they are entitled to. I have many years of experience in the field getting my clients what they're owed. I am happy to give a free initial consultation to anyone struggling with an insurance claim. My catastrophe experience includes: Hurricane Katrina (2005), Hurricane Sandy (2012), Hurricane Ike (2008), Hurricane Irene (2011), Hurricane Odile (Mexico 2014), Christchurch New Zealand earthquake (2015) + numerous California wildfires. As an independent adjuster I have experience handling claims for a variety of homeowner and commercial insurance companies, including California Fair Plan, Mercury insurance, various underwriters at Lloyds of London, and several commercial carriers. I have obtained the California independent adjuster's license which very few adjusters have. I replaced my California Adjuster license with a California Public Adjuster license to help homeowners and business owners negotiate claims with their insurance companies. The type of claims I handle include: fire, smoke, vandalism, explosion, theft, water etc. Finally, I am very comfortable with Xactimate, the most common software used by insurance companies and restoration contractors.
Obtaining top dollar from a property insurance claim requires an understanding of the claims process, an understanding of the policy, and an understanding of the construction issues and how to properly present an estimate the insurance company can understand and approve. As a former insurance adjuster I have an inside understanding of how the claims process works and how insurance companies think. I have a strong knowledge of insurance policies and how they are interpreted. Having worked for insurance restoration contractors I have a strong understanding of the construction issues. With over 15 years of experience writing Xactimate estimates I know how to present an estimate the insurance carrier will pay. I am certified in Xactimate. I am also certified by the IICRC, the most prominent training organization in the water damage restoration industry. Besides my work as a public adjuster I provide consulting to insurance bad faith attorneys, restoration contractors, and other public adjusters. I also have experience as an appraiser, which is a neutral arbitrator in the insurance industry's version of alternative dispute resolution. Contact me if you need someone with knowledge, experience, and passion to resolve a difficult insurance claim.
