Insurance Recovery Workshops

New Dates Added by Community Demand

Are you getting frustrated with your insurance adjuster? Are you confused by what the insurance company has told you about your claim?

We understand how challenging and overwhelming the first two months since the Woolsey Fire and the Camp Fire have been for you, your family and the community. We believe that it is important for you and the community to understand the complex claims process, the public adjusting process and, the rights afforded to you under your insurance coverages.

New dates for Insurance Recovery Workshops have been added by community demand. These FREE seminars ensure that you have all the information and knowledge on how to move your claim forward beyond the initial advance payments or promises made by your carrier so far.
