   February 2010   

     In Department of Fair Employment and Housing v. United Dominion Realty (Case Nos. 07CC12067, 02CC12069), the court accepted our audit findings, stating that:

“In awarding fees in these amounts, the court has fully accepted the declaration of James P. Schratz in opposition to the motion, including all of his recommended reductions. The court finds his qualifications to be impressive. Likewise his reasoning as to why the fees sought are excessive is persuasive.”

   
   
   
   

As a former insurance executive and attorney, I have spent 14 years personally adjusting or supervising thousands of high exposure cases around the world, including mass tort, construction defect, complex business cases, catastrophic personal injuries, and wrongful death. The cases involved numerous lines of insurance, including personal, commercial, property, fidelity, surety, and excess and special risks.

I also supervised the defense of lawsuits against Fireman’s Fund alleging bad faith and improper claims handling, and within this role reviewed hundreds of files to determine if the adjuster had adhered to proper claims handling guidelines.

Since 1994, I have been retained and/or testified on behalf of both insured’s and insurance companies in 26 states on issues relating to insurance bad faith and proper claims handling.
