Single
Focus

Ver Ploeg & Lumpkin concentrates its practice exclusively on representing policyholders involved in sophisticated insurance coverage and extra-contractual disputes. Since our founding in 1995 we have never represented an insurance company and we never will. Our law firm is one of the first, and one of few firms in the nation to focus singularly on insurance coverage issues.

We are pioneers in this field of law and are recognized as the go-to law firm in Florida and elsewhere for complex insurance coverage and bad faith disputes. When an insurance company has unreasonably denied or delayed payment of a valid claim or has failed to defend a policyholder from a lawsuit, policyholders count on our team to favorably resolve the matter.

Strategic
Advantage

When the stakes are at their highest, policyholders need to be represented by a legal team that understands insurance law and the insurance industry. With more than 25 attorneys and a seasoned professional staff, our firm has the capability to tackle the most complex and challenging insurance coverage and extra-contractual disputes.

Many of our lawyers have prior experience working at the large law firms that represent and defend insurance companies. These attorneys decided to make a change to devote their practices to helping policyholders fight back against the insurers who refuse to provide them with the coverage and benefits to which they are entitled.

Our law firm offers policyholders several key advantages:
