Stolz & Associates, LLC Team
At Stolz and Associates, we believe our strengths lie in our ability to assist insurance company clients in preparing for litigation and coverage disputes before the institution of suit. We have been involved in the handling of routine as well as complex personal and commercial insurance lines matters since the firm was founded in 2004. This includes the handling of first party and third party coverage disputes from the initial claim up to and including disposition by litigation and appeal. Over the years carriers have retained us to not only assist in resolving coverage questions, but participate in policy drafting and compliance issues.
We are equally familiar, and have a working knowledge of most property and casualty insurance policies including auto, homeowners, business owners and commercial general liability policies as well as errors and omissions, and specialty policies. Versed in the use of declaratory judgment actions to the benefit of insurance carriers in order to determine the rights and responsibilities of all parties involved in a coverage dispute. We have been successful in using the New Jersey Insurance Fraud Prevention Act to pursue those insureds that have submitted improper claims to their insurance carriers as well as have litigated bad faith claims, liability coverage disputes and policy reformation issues at the trial, Appellate and have been before the New Jersey Supreme Court on three separate occasions.
In assisting in the pre-litigation stages, Stolz and Associates has been retained by various insurance carriers to conduct Examinations Under Oaths, financial documentation production and interpretation, and participate in arson investigations from the initial notice up and through completion of the insurance carrier's investigation. Companies also utilize our experience to assist in claims handling of large or troublesome losses.
Our Firm was established in 2004 with attorneys who shared a vision of building a respected New Jersey business and litigation law firm by providing the highest quality legal services in a timely, result-oriented and cost-effective manner. That commitment has proven to be a recipe for success, and has resulted in the steady growth of our Firm, our practice areas and the diversity of our client base.
