Thank you for visiting Wites & Kapetan. We are attorneys who represent people whose insurance companies refuse to pay them the full value of their claim or have denied the claim and refused to pay any money.  We help our clients obtain the full value of their claim, so they are fully reimbursed for their losses, and get the coverage they deserve for the premiums they have paid to their insurance companies. We have vast experience with all types of insurance and property damage claims including those arising from flood, fire, wind, mold,  sink holes, pipe leaks, hurricanes, tornadoes, water, accidents and injuries.

Why Should I Hire An Insurance Claims Attorney?

Insurance companies have large and experienced armies of lawyers, experts, and insurance adjusters. Unfortunately, their marching orders are often to pay the minimum amount on all claims, and to deny claims whenever possible.

Because insurance companies maximize their profits by charging the highest possible amount for premiums, and paying the lowest possible amount for claims. You paid your insurance premiums, and you deserve for your claim to be paid in full. The law requires insurance companies to pay your attorney’s fees and costs when the attorney recovers money for you in court, so in most cases you will not have to pay us any attorney’s fees or costs; your insurance company will pay our attorney’s fees and costs.   Since your insurance company has a team of attorneys and adjusters on their side, you should have your own team of professionals that are charged with protecting your interests.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire An Insurance Claim Attorney To Represent Me For My Insurance Claim?

People are generally surprised when we tell them that hiring an attorney to represent them for an insurance claim usually won’t cost them anything. The reason for this is that insurance companies are legally obligated to pay all attorney’s fees and costs if we win the case or when we settle in court in your favor. In any case, you will not have to pay us any attorney’s fees or costs unless and until we recovery money for you. And, if we take on your case and don’t recover any money for you from your insurance company, you will not have to pay us any attorney’s fees or costs.

What are the benefits of Hiring Wites & Kapetan’s insurance claim attorneys?

There are two main things that separate us from our competition: Experience and Court Room Reputation.

Insurance claims attorney courtroom reputationExperience: We have been doing this a long time. We have been battling insurance companies for many years, and some of the attorneys and insurance adjusters that work for us – and can work for you too – used to represent insurance companies. Wites & Kapetan only represents property owners; we don’t represent any insurance companies, and we know the tricks the insurance companies will use to try and minimize, or even deny, your claim. Our law firm was founded in 2001; we have done thousands of cases involving insurance companies, we own our office building, and we will be around for a long time. Whether it is a flood, fire, storm, accident or injury, we have the experience to maximize your claim, so you are fully reimbursed for your losses.

Courtroom Reputation: Many insurance claims attorneys say that they have experience fighting insurance companies. Very few of them, however, have the same courtroom experience as Wites & Kapetan. Insurance companies know that we don’t just settle cases. We fight cases in court, and we will take your case before a jury and fight it on appeal when necessary to get you the money you deserve.

Indeed, Marc Wites is a well known authority on Florida law. He has authored since 1997 the widely popular Florida Litigation Guide, and has obtained great success before juries and on appeals. Click here to see a video of Marc arguing an insurance coverage dispute before The Florida Supreme Court, where his opponent was a former Florida Supreme Court Justice and Marc won the case and forced the insurance company to pay all of the money available under its 2 million dollar insurance policy.  We will recommend that you settle your case if the insurance company agrees to pay the fair value of your claim.  But, if the insurance company won’t fully reimburse you for your losses, or has denied your claim altogether, we will fight them in court to obtain the relief that you and your family deserve.

Are there any hidden fees or costs?

No. You won’t have to pay us any attorney’s fees or costs unless we recover money for you. If we recover money for you, our attorney’s fees and costs are typically paid by the insurance company.
