Client Testimonials

Quaker Maid Meats, Inc.

It has been almost a year since the fire which completely destroyed one of our processing plants. …I had no idea that the documentation of our claim would become as extensive as it did. Your staff worked tirelessly to quantify the claim. I am convinced that every possible element of our loss was maximized to the extent provided for in our coverage. …You and your staff are true professionals, and the quality and detail of your work is very impressive.

Stanley Szortyka
President

Federal Realty Investment Trust, Rockville, MD

Our construction team had little experience related to fire restoration and [your] experience and knowledge helped to save time and money. Thanks in part to [your] guidance, we were able to open the remainder of Santana Row on November 7, 2002, less than three months after the devastating fire. …With [you] at the property, our development, marketing, and operations personnel were able to use [you] as the ‘go-to’ person with any questions relating to the fire insurance claim. This allowed our staff to focus on getting the project open and operating, rather than worry about the insurance claim. … Finally, [you were] an enormous resource and advocate in our claim with the insurance company. [Your] vast experience, advice, and daily commitment were extremely valuable in our effort to finalize the insurance claim for Federal Realty Investment Trust. Without [your team], I am confident we would not have been able to resolve this $125 million plus negotiation in less than 14 months, an enormously fast timetable for a claim of this size.

York International Corporation

Within hours of retaining your firm, your staff of construction consultants were on site to help us quantify the extent of the damage and coordinate agreement of the emergency measures underway with our insurer. …Your expert interpretation of the policy language to identify the available coverage and ensure all covered aspects of the loss were investigated and made part of the claim if appropriate. Your personnel dealt professionally with the insurance company and their plethora of hired experts, which clearly helped to secure a settlement that was fair for all involved.
