On Monday, September 8, 2014, I am opening a new law office near my home in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County. My practice will be dedicated to the legal representation of individuals and small- to medium-sized businesses in their disputes with insurance companies.

From 2001 to 2013, I owned and operated an insurance litigation law firm in Torrance, California. I represented insurance companies in the courts of California and Hawai’i when disputes arose with their policyholders. Now, after a period of personal reflection and professional development, I have decided to chart a new course in my legal career.

Why the change?

During the past twenty years, I have seen firsthand the tactics that some insurance companies employ to resist prompt, full payment of valid insurance claims. I understand the unfair claims practices that evolve within insurance companies to enhance profits at the expense of policyholders. I have learned how to quickly identify and challenge unlawful attempts by insurance companies to misinterpret the fine print in order to avoid paying a claim.

In short, I am uniquely qualified to assert the insurance rights of policyholders, and I am dedicating my practice going forward to assisting them when they get the “run around” from their insurance company.

This links to my Magna Carta "pinboard" on Pinterest. My pupilage group in the local chapter of the Inns of Court is doing a presentation in October 2014 on the Magna Carta in view of the marking of the 800th year since King John originally placed his seal on the document that ultimately came to be known as Magna Carta or the great charter.

The Cumis requirement is now a reality in Nevada—at least according to one federal district court interpreting Nevada Supreme Court precedent. This article describes the development of case and statutory law in California and Nevada governing conflicts of interest on the part of insurance carrier-retained defense counsel when the defending carrier reserves its rights to deny coverage. In addition, this article identifies typical situations creating a disqualifying conflict of interest, as well as practice pointers regarding the method of analysis, negotiating attorney fee rates, and resolving Cumis conflicts. Mr. Bolender presented this article, along with a slideshow and live presentation, to Nevada attorneys in October 2013 in a seminar co-sponsored by the Insurance and Health Law Section and the Construction Law Section of the Nevada State Bar.

This video is a slide show presented by Jeff Bolender for a seminar entitled, A Practical Guide to Analyzing Liability Insurance Policies," sponsored by the South Bay Bar Association in June 2013. The seminar sets forth five steps for analyzing liability insurance policies, including issues such as the duty to defend, cumis counsel, multiple occurrences, etc.

Experimental video of slideshow of history of Magna Carta. This may be included as part of a presentation at the October 2014 meeting of the Inns of Court - Benjamin Aranda III. The 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta is in 2015, so our pupilage group will be presenting a one hour continuing legal education seminar on that document and the legal implications since the year 1215.
