Insurance Defense & Coverage
Chee Markham & Feldman provides insurance defense legal services to United States providers with claim disputes in Hawaii. Our attorneys have devoted a substantial portion of their legal practice to representing insurance companies for decades. Our firm has established a reputation of dependability in the Hawaii insurance industry, with a successful track record of expert counsel and strategic advice. Defending insurers in a wide range of insurance liability matters, our insurance defense services include premises liability, construction defects, dram shop laws, products liability, and professional malpractice for realtors and attorneys.
At Chee Markham & Feldman, our attorneys have extensive experience representing clients before federal and state courts and regulatory agencies, giving us the knowledge, skills and resources comparable to a larger firm, allowing us to aggressively defend our clients while retaining the personal, communicative approach of a smaller firm.
Our firm conducts thorough, efficient investigations of every client's case, promptly addressing the issues behind each claim and informing the client whether settlement or trial is the most prudent option. Whenever possible, our attorneys seek amicable solutions that are cost-effective for the client.
Bad faith claims can be even more daunting, with the possibility of punitive damages accompanying a compensatory damage award. Nonetheless, many bad faith claims are defensible if our attorneys can show that the provider acted fairly. Absent evidence of deliberate or willful denials of coverage based on improperly favoring the provider's interests over the insured's, our firm can help a provider defeat a bad faith claim or reach a favorable settlement arrangement with the insured.
Coverage Opinions & Litigation
For decades, insurers in Hawaii have relied on us to streamline the claims process and avoid disputes. We have extensive experience evaluating complex coverage issues and providing answers to difficult questions of policy interpretation. As such, we are able to administer opinions and review policies for potential coverage issues.
Many clients come to our firm for representation after a previously drafted policy becomes problematic. When coverage disputes do arise, Chee, Markham & Feldman's attorneys possess the litigation experience and resources to effectively handle even the most complex coverage claims, including agent negligence and bad faith claims. With Chee Markham & Feldman, you can be sure that no matter the claim, our attorneys possess the years of experience and legal expertise to deliver swift and effective results.
