We have helped business owners and homeowners in the aftermath of every major wildfire in California for the last fifty years. Because of our unique experience with California wildfires, we have become the most sought-after resource for people and communities in Sonoma County, Napa Valley, and the entire state for when these disasters occur. We are a team of
- Licensed Public Adjusters
- Construction Cost Estimators
- Inventory Specialists
- Forensic Accountants
- Disaster Recovery Professionals
We know the emotional impact and toll such an experience can have on business owners and homeowners. Sudden property damage can turn your life upside down and stop your business indefinitely. On top of this, it will be up to you, the policyholder, to accurately report to your insurance company the full scope and cost of damage.
That is why our insurance professionals can work quickly on your behalf to maximize and expedite your claim. We only work for you, not the insurance company. And with decades of experience with wildfire claims, we know how to negotiate settlements that are significantly higher than what you may be originally offered without an advocate on your side.
To learn a little more, take a look at the hundreds of letters from clients we have helped in the last two years during the Tubbs Fire, Carr Fire, and other California wildfires. Our purpose is to make sure policyholders are aware of their options, not taken advantage of, and receive everything they are entitled to from their policy.
That is also why after the 2017 Tubbs Fire in Napa and Sonoma, we gave the community Insurance Recovery Workshops every week for sixteen weeks — at no cost to homeowners — so that families had the resources and insight they needed in preparing their wildfire claims.
We also led private-focused workshops for Kaiser Permanente, St. Joseph’s Health, CA Vintners Association, and Medtronic. When the Santa Rosa City School District called, we were there at once to secure their recovery.
When the Carr Fire burned through Shasta and Trinity Counties in 2018, local organizations and municipalities again invited The Greenspan Co./Adjusters International to provide town hall meetings and insurance claim evenings at no cost for local residents to learn how to achieve successful insurance claims.
If you have a home or business in Napa Valley and Sonoma County — in Geyserville, Healdsburg, Santa Rosa or elsewhere — our team is already in place and available 24/7 at 888.473.3677 and online at www.greenspan-ai.com.
Together, we can get you a higher settlement, and get you back to your life and business sooner.

The Greenspan Co./Adjusters International Providing Insurance Claim Services for Kincade Fire in Sonoma County.
San Francisco, CA – October 30, 2019. The Greenspan Co./Adjusters International, the premier public insurance adjusting company in the Western United States, is responding to the need for fire claim guidance for people affected by the Kincade Fire in Sonoma County. Licensed public insurance adjusters are available 24/7 at 888.473.3677 and online at www.greenspan-ai.com to provide a roadmap to insurance claim recovery.
Commercial operations destroyed by wildfires face additional challenges from the sudden loss of income, because many of their costs, including payroll and lease payments continue. Approximately 40 to 60 percent of companies go out of business following a disaster, according to the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA), who states that fully 90 percent of smaller companies fail within a year, unless they resume income operations quickly. Clearly the need exists to implement an insurance claim and recovery plan as quickly as possible, and finding licensed professionals with experience in this specialized project is essential.
In the aftermath of the 2017 wildfires in Napa and Sonoma, The Greenspan Co./Adjusters International supported the community with Insurance Recovery Workshops, both public and private. In addition to weekly homeowner workshops, they presented private focused workshops for PG&E, Kaiser Permanente, St. Joseph’s Health, CA Vintners Association and Medtronic. Licensed public adjusters, construction cost estimators, inventory specialists, forensic accountants, and other experienced disaster recovery professionals provided insights and valuable tools, all at no cost to residents. When the Carr Fire burned through Shasta and Trinity Counties in 2018, local organizations and municipalities again invited The Greenspan Co./Adjusters International to provide town hall meetings and insurance claim evenings at no cost for local residents to learn how to achieve successful insurance claims. The company has extensive experience being invited to provide Question & Answer events for residents in the aftermath of disasters, having been invited to do so in Lake County following the devastating Valley Fire in 2015. Opportunities for residents to ask questions of insurance claim professionals were provided throughout Lake County in Middletown, Cobb, Kelseyville, and Loch Lomond, and other locations.
The Greenspan Co./Adjusters International has helped business owners and homeowners in the aftermath of every major wildfire in the last five decades. This experience makes The Greenspan Co./Adjusters International uniquely qualified as professional loss consultants.

“Insurance companies require property owners to completely document and prove the dollar amount of their property damage and loss of income claims, and this is really difficult for people who aren’t practiced in the complexities of negotiating major insurance claims,” says Steve Severaid, SPPA Senior Vice President & Treasurer of The Greenspan Co./Adjusters International. “The trend continues that insurance companies raise their requirements for proving a claim. With decades of experience in this specialized arena, our public adjusters are providing a lot of advice to residents in need.”
