Many of you may have heard the term “first party claim,” but do you really understand the process?

This includes: How to spot a potential claim. What types of insurance are involved? How to locate old insurance policies. What are the stages of a first party claim? What are the pros and cons of filing an insurance claim? And much more. This will be an interactive presentation where you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you have and get answers from attorneys who are on the front lines of insurance litigation on behalf of community associations in the state of Washington. Please join us.


Zak McIsaac, Esq. is a partner with Ashbaugh Beal.  In his practice he uses his understanding of insurance to maximize recovery for plaintiffs in a variety of settings, with a particular emphasis on working with condominium associations. Given that the vast majority of construction defect lawsuits are settled with insurance money, understanding the inner workings of insurers and what makes them tick is critical to getting the best possible results. This process demands dynamic game plans and does not always require formal litigation. He prides himself on being able to achieve results without expensive and protracted litigation being a foregone conclusion.
