Insurance Fraud & Arson

The attorneys of our Insurance Law Department are frequently called on to advise their insurance industry clients regarding potentially-fraudulent claims, and they regularly work with claims professionals and company Special Investigative Units to investigate and litigate suspected insurance fraud, including arson.

Because insurance fraud can occur in relation to all types of policies and at all stages of the claim, our attorneys bring their considerable knowledge of the insurance industry and the various types of policies to bear in advising and defending our clients. Department Principal and Chair Richard L. McMonigle, Jr. is a former Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia and Delaware Counties, with considerable experience prosecuting fraud and arson criminal matters. Our attorneys have experience taking examinations under oath to address suspected fraud and misrepresentation. The group’s attorneys have also litigated actions involving fraudulent claims, and have obtained favorable verdicts for clients in cases involving fraud and misrepresentations in the application for the policy; fraud in the presentation of property and bodily injury claims; fraudulent theft losses; and arson. The wealth of knowledge possessed by our attorneys is an asset to the Firm’s clients as they seek to prevent and address insurance fraud.
