Insurance Defense


Removing Risk From the Legal Process

The earlier you can resolve an insurance defense case the better. An early resolution costs less and removes risk from the legal process. If we can make a case go away early, that is usually better than resolving it later at trial. Our attorneys believe that aggressively pursuing early dismissal, when appropriate, is better than a victory at trial.

At the law firm of Geringer, McNamara & Horowitz in New York City, we believe in resolving our clients’ cases quickly, professionally and as successfully as possible. For more than 50 years, our lawyers have represented insurance companies and self-insured businesses in a wide range of insurance defense litigation, including:
