Professional Liability

Our firm has a wealth of experience in the field of errors and omissions, from both litigation and coverage perspectives. Lawyers at Selman Breitman have worked in the defense of insurance agents, real estate agents, accountants and lawyers, as well as pharmacists, doctors and other health care providers.

We have been actively involved in agency issues, defending agents and brokers as well as representing insurance carriers in relation to claims involving real estate agents and brokers. Our attorneys are highly experienced in this regard and have been retained by independent agents and brokers, as well as by insurance carriers seeking counsel to defend their own agents and brokers.

Selman Breitman has represented real estate agents in the defense of E&O claims, first doing so in the late 1970s. We have also defended accountants and can add significant insight in this area since one of our partners is a licensed CPA. Another of our partners served as general counsel for a managing general agent as well as general counsel for an insurance agency. Additionally, we also have a firm lawyer who is a licensed insurance agent with 14 years of experience as an insurance agent in the state of California.

Statistically, a higher percentage of professional malpractice claims go to trial than other litigated cases. In these instances, our solid trial skills and successful track record are critical aspects of our experience in this area.
