We have developed significant expertise in cases where there is evidence or allegations of any of the following:

  • Bad faith denial of coverage
  • Breach of the duty to defend
  • Failure to conduct a complete inspection or evaluation
  • Failure to settle
  • Insurer only rendering partial payment when insured party is entitled to full payment

The firm also handles complex coverage litigation matters and all aspects of insurance-related litigation. 
Firm principal Nicholas J. Drakulich has been practicing law for over thirty years and has considerable experience successfully representing clients in insurance claims practices and bad faith matters. Mr. Drakulich devotes a portion of his practice to cases involving real estate and construction defects.

  • For instance, he successfully handled a case where an insurance company denied coverage to a developer of a major housing project in Southern California. The developer had been sued for $25 million construction-related defects. The insurance company thereafter agreed to defend his client at its sole expense and to indemnify them from any damages. The multimillion dollar construction defect case was also ultimately resolved in a settlement orchestrated by Mr. Drakulich and favorable to his client.
  • In another matter, Mr. Drakulich successfully represented a prominent eye surgeon in his multimillion-dollar dispute with his disability insurance company. The insurance company which had previously denied the claim (and secretly monitored and photographed his activities in preparation for mounting its defense) ultimately agreed to pay his benefits in full following Mr. Drakulich’s assistance.
