In short, I’m currently a claims counsel for Hiscox. Since that leaves many asking a what?, for who?, I’ll explain further. Starting with “who,” Hiscox is a leading specialist insurer. Founded in England, where it’s a member of Lloyd’s of London, Hiscox’s history in America is short by comparison. However, in that short time, Hiscox has already pioneered direct liability insurance, so now American small business owners can shop online or call for their insurance needs, the same way individuals already shop online for auto or health insurance.
The direct business is important to me, because I’m a claims counsel on the start-ups and small business claim team. When one of our direct customers sends in a claim, they’ll be getting a call from us. Once I receive a claim, I examine it for coverage. For covered claims, I then work with the customer to help them resolve the problem at hand. That may include appointing defense counsel and making sure our customer’s interests are being protected, or negotiating a fair resolution directly with claimants.
Prior to coming in-house with Hiscox, I worked in private practice at Foltz Martin Knapp as a litigation associate. I also worked for a short time at the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in the Staff Attorney Office.
A double dawg, I graduated cum laude from the University of Georgia School of Law, and received my AB in History from the Franklin College of Arts & Science at Georgia. In between, I worked in non-profit fundraising, managing dozens of student callers who annually raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the UGA Annual Fund.
In my personal time, I spend time with my family, read old books, and try to write when I can.
