Brian Goodman and Justin Redd warn against the unauthorized practice of public adjusting in, Claims Magazine

The unauthorized practice of public adjusting is problematic for both insurance companies and policyholders and has become pervasive throughout the United States. Known by its acronym, UPPA presents great risks to innocent, unsuspecting insureds, insurance carriers, state insurance regulators, legislators and properly licensed, ethical members of the public adjusting profession.

Recognizing and preventing UPPA is key to preventing insurance carriers and the insured public from being taken advantage of. In "The Unauthorized Practice of Public Insurance Adjusting," appearing at and in the most recent issue of Claims Magazine (PDF available here), Kramon & Graham attorneys Brian Goodman (left) and Justin Redd (right) walk professionals through the latest case law and legislative efforts to curb this potentially unscrupulous and often unregulated practice.
