Hurricane Florence Claims- Shipman & Wright Lawyers

At Shipman & Wright, our reputation for aggressive and honest representation of your clients is well known among insurance companies. Our attorneys will be working with these companies to insure you receive fair representation.  We will make sure insurance companies comply with local/state/federal laws in the restoration process. 

With so much at stake, you deserve zealous representation of your Hurricane Florence claims. You could hire a public adjuster, but they are not lawyers. They can’t provide you any legal assistance. They can’t provide any further assistance  if you find yourself in a dispute with your insurance company. If an issue arises about the amount they are offering, you need a lawyer to speak on your behalf. Because of this, you need to hire a local law firm that is personally invested in the recovery of of this area. A firm that is advocating on your behalf to maximize that recovery.
