HOW DOES GREENBLATT AGULNICK KREMIN OVERTURN DENIALS?
Every claim is different. However, the short answer is insurance policies are contracts.  Some denials are fact based, where the facts and circumstances surrounding the claim are in dispute.  We hold insurance companies to their burden of proof and counteract their attempts to use the facts against the policyholder.  In claims where policy interpretation is dispositive, we employ strategies such as contra preferentem, argue ambiguities, policy reconciliation, and policy analysis.

Greenblatt Agulnick was formed in 2005.  Since that time, its attorneys have helped countless home and business owners recover after their insurance and property damage claims were denied, underpaid, and problematic.  Todd Kremin joined Greenblatt Agulnick after 15 years of large firm insurance coverage experience to form Greenblatt Agulnick Kremin in 2021.

WHAT COURTS DOES GAK PRACTICE IN?
GAK's attorneys are admitted in New York State Court, Federal District Courts, Second Circuit, and in Connecticut.  GAK works with a network of colleagues nationwide for matters outside New York and Connecticut.  

WHAT IF I AM UNABLE TO GET TO GAK'S OFFICE?

If you are unable to come to us, that's not a worry.  Either we will come to you, meet virtually, or make other arrangements.  Our office is where we hang our coats, but our practice is state-wide.  


IS MY CLAIM TOO SMALL?
Generally, GAK does not handle matters which would qualify for small claims court, meaning the amount in dispute is less than $7,500 or $5,000.  Although we would love to help, small claims courts are designed for non-attorneys.  All other matters are reviewed on a case by case basis.

Sometimes you don't need an attorney, or just not yet.  We work with a network of highly qualified and trained public adjusters to assist you. GAK can connect you with such a public adjuster to assist you with your claim.  Throughout the process, we will be available to answer any questions or address concerns you may have.  GAK does not charge for this service, and there is no additional cost to the policyholder, although GAK may receive fees from the adjuster for participating in the process.
