About Our Firm

Selman Leichenger Edson Hsu Newman & Moore LLP is a law firm that serves the insurance industry nationwide, from its offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and the Pacific Northwest. The firm has its roots in Selman Breitman, LLP, which was founded in 1980.  On January 1, 2023, the leaders of its insurance coverage practice groups started the firm anew, to focus exclusively on the practice of insurance coverage and litigation.  The firm remains committed to our fundamental principles and values, with a focus on legal excellence and unmatched client service. 

We are experienced trial lawyers and trusted advisors relied upon by national and global insurers to protect their interests in emerging and established industries across the United States. We understand our role as a service organization, as well as a provider of legal advice, and so we work collaboratively with our clients to reach their business goals. We provide a full spectrum of consulting and litigation services relating to insurance matters.

Keeping our clients out of court and out of the media spotlight is our priority. But when a client’s business success depends on aggressive and result-oriented litigation, we are prepared to bring our talent and resources to the courtroom. This philosophy has led to our recognition as one of the leading law firms in the Western United States. Our opponents know our trial record, positioning our clients for swift resolution.

Our attorneys have been instrumental in defining some of the most important issues in the insurance industry through our work in trial and appellate courts in California, and throughout the United States, while maintaining exemplary standards of practice. We are trusted by the largest insurance entities to protect their interests in a wide range of industries.

Our success is a testament to the trust that clients place in our service. Because of our reputation and long-term client relationships, we are called on by clients to represent their interests at the highest levels across the nation.

We would love the opportunity to get to know you and your business. For more information, please view our available practice areas
