For more than 20 years, attorney Brenton N. Ver Ploeg practiced insurance litigation at Miami’s oldest law firm, mainly representing insurance companies. In 1995, he founded this firm, which is dedicated solely to representing policyholders. Four years later, he was joined in the practice by attorney R. Hugh Lumpkin, who had extensive experience in complex commercial litigation, insurance coverage and appellate representation.
Ver Ploeg & Lumpkin, P.A., has since grown to include more than 25 attorneys and a large staff of certified paralegals and legal secretaries. Our entire team of legal professionals is dedicated to achieving positive results for our clients. We represent clients whose insurance companies have delayed or denied claims, failed to defend them against lawsuits or acted in bad faith.
First we will listen to you describe the insurance-related issues you are facing. Next, we will ask you to send us all relevant documentation, including the insurance policy and copies of your correspondence with the insurance company. We will review the documents, tell you whether we believe you have a case and, if so, how we can help.
We believe that thorough and thoughtful preparation is key to the successful resolution of any case. That is why we begin each case by completing a comprehensive coverage analysis. We review the policies, the underlying facts and the position of the insurance companies, and analyze the case in view of the applicable statutes and case law. Based on this information, we develop a strategy for pursuing a successful resolution to your legal problem.
We draft an internal brief that will guide our work throughout the legal process. Parts of the document may later be incorporated into motions or other legal documents. Our thorough and early preparation often allows us to anticipate the opponents’ tactics, rather than merely reacting to them.
Clients appreciate the personal attention they and their legal issues receive from the lawyers of Ver Ploeg & Lumpkin, P.A. Throughout the process, you will deal with a firm partner and a senior-level associate. We are accessible and responsive to our clients, returning communications promptly if we are not immediately available.
