Hiring a public adjuster to represent you after a significant property loss occurs may be the best decision you ever make. Most insurance companies are happy to work with you directly. Well intentioned or not, insurance industry professionals will not coach you through the process of presenting your claim properly. It should come as no surprise that insurance companies do not want us involved, especially when it will cost them exponentially more money than they would otherwise owe. Having your own talented and tenacious advocate will do more than help level the playing field, it will return the advantage to you, the insured.
