Jones, Skelton & Hochuli has earned the reputation as a leader in insurance coverage litigation, and advising clients regarding coverage issues, in Arizona and beyond. Our attorneys have spent decades representing insurance carriers in all types of coverage litigation—experience that is crucial when disputes often rest on the interpretation of policy language and the case law analyzing that language. Equally important is the advice we frequently give insurance carriers with regard to any number of coverage issues, including substantive coverage issues, the options available following a coverage decision, and the potential ramifications to the insurance carrier depending upon that particular decision. We provide these services to our insurance carrier clients in the context of almost all personal and commercial policies.

When third parties file actions alleging the insured has injured the third party or his/her property, regional and national carriers rely on our insurance attorneys for their thorough investigations, insightful evaluations, and experienced counsel to provide the best solution to limit their exposure and resolve claims. As a result of our long-standing relationships with engineers, cause and origin experts, reconstructionists and police and fire professionals, we are able to leverage an extensive network of highly-qualified experts to develop the most aggressive and effective defense strategies for our clients. Our goal is to protect our clients’ interests, recognizing when the benefits of settlement negotiation outweigh the unknown outcomes of litigation.

  • Fraud

  • Examinations Under Oath
