Insurance Trial Lawyers Fighting For The Rights Of California Policyholders

People buy insurance policies to help them through difficult times. When a fire destroys your home, when disaster strikes your business, when you are diagnosed with a serious illness and need long-term care, you depend on the insurance company to be there.

When insurance companies fail to live up to the terms of their policies and unreasonably deny claims or delay payment, policyholders suffer. That's when they turn to the attorneys of Pillsbury & Coleman, LLP. From our offices in San Francisco, we represent the rights of insureds against insurance companies.

Our Record Of Success In Helping Policyholders Has Changed Insurance Law In California

Our lawyers are well-known for tackling complex insurance litigation and developing new law or expanding the application of existing legal precedents. We have achieved exceptional results, obtaining more than $750 million in compensation for our clients, and have tried landmark cases that changed the face of insurance law in California.

  • We represent individual policyholders who are experiencing problems with a claim against their homeowners' policy, auto insurance policy, life insurance policy, or health and disability policy.
  • We represent individuals who are having a problem with an employer's benefit plan, health care policy or long-term disability plan. These plans are typically covered under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).
  • We represent business policyholders in disputes over a wide variety of business insurance policies. We also represent specialized businesses that have unique types of claims, such as construction companies, maritime businesses and companies in the financial industry.

We stand up to the powerful insurance companies, giving a voice to the powerless and protecting the rights of all policyholders to be treated fairly and in good faith. We have had cases against nearly every major insurance company, and we are not afraid to go to trial to hold them accountable. Our strong record of success with these cases lets insurance companies know that you are serious about your claims.
