Weinreb Law Group Represents Both Policyholders and Insurance Companies in the Handling of Insurance Disputes
Representation of Policyholders/Insureds
By law, your insurance carrier owes you a duty to act in good faith, which means they cannot look for ways to avoid their obligations under the terms of your policy. Such actions may constitute bad faith, and policyholders can seek remedies through the legal system. At Weinreb Law Group, we understand the complexities involved in insurance matters and draw on our experience representing clients in the Los Angeles area and throughout California in bad faith claims to help you seek the result you deserve.
Responsive advocate helps you understand your rights as an insured
By law, your insurance carrier owes you a duty to act in good faith, which means they cannot look for ways to avoid their obligations under the terms of your policy. WLG has successfully assisted policyholders, both businesses and individuals, with insurance claims, including assisting them in obtaining appropriate coverage for a claim and pursuing claims against an insurance company for the wrongful or unreasonable denial of a claim and the unreasonable handling of a claim (bad faith). WLG understands the complexities involved in insurance matters and draws on our experience representing clients in the Los Angeles area and throughout California in bad faith claims to help you seek the result you deserve.
WLG can advise you of your rights when an insurer refuses to promptly and properly investigate your claim or refuses to pay a claim that is covered under your policy. We bring actions against even the largest insurers when they act fraudulently or in bad faith.
We represent clients throughout California in claims against insurers who fail to act in good faith by:
- Denying coverage without a valid reason or investigation or failing to provide a reasonable explanation for the denial
- Failing to confirm, deny or pay the claim in a reasonable period of time
- Failing to reach a fair settlement when liability is proven
- Failing to disclose policy limits
In insurance litigation and appeals, WLG provides services for clients/insurers involving:
- First-party claims
- Third-party claims

Representation of Insurance Companies
Weinreb Law Group’s attorneys have over 28 years’ experience representing insurance companies on many different matters -- providing coverage advice and opinions, handling rescission matters, bad faith actions, and declaratory relief actions with regard to professional liability (lawyers, agents, and brokers), general liability, and automobile insurance. WLG also defends carriers against breach of contract and bad faith claims.
Samples of Past Successful Representation:
- Uninsured Motorist Breach of Contract /Bad Faith Action Against Insurer
Weinreb Law Group successfully represented an insured against a major auto insurance company in California who denied his uninsured motorist bodily injury claim. After the insurance company sued its insured for declaratory relief, claiming there was no coverage, WLG filed suit against the insurance company for breach of contract and bad faith and successfully and efficiently prosecuted that action, leading to an amicable settlement.
- Coverage Action for a Business Against Insurers
Weinreb Law Group successfully represented a Los Angeles based business in a coverage dispute with its commercial general liability insurer and property insurer. The claim against the business involved the alleged improper disposal of a client's furniture. After initially agreeing to defend the client, the commercial general liability insurer filed an action for declaratory relief, claiming there was no coverage under its policy for the claim. The property insurer outright denied the claim for the disposed property. Marnin Weinreb defended the business in the declaratory relief suit and sought coverage from the property damage insurer, leading to a global resolution of the claims against the business, with both the liability insurer and property insurer paying to resolve the claim and the business receiving money for its losses.
- Summary Judgment in Favor of Insurance Company on Coverage Dispute
Weinreb Law Group obtained summary judgment for an insurer in a coverage action regarding a claim for damaged property. The insured was a truck driver hauling cheese from California to Texas. The shipment of cheese was rejected by the recipient for being out of temperature. The insured claimed the loss was due to a mechanical failure or breakdown of his temperature-controlled trailer. However, the insurance policy provided limited coverage for such a loss. WLG successfully moved for summary judgment for the insurance company, proving to the Court that there was no coverage because there was no evidence of a mechanical failure or breakdown of the insured's temperature-controlled trailer, which was required for coverage to exist.
