In these times when insurance premiums are skyrocketing in cost, and the insurance companies quality of service is shrinking, Advocate Claims Public Adjusters stands ready to work for you!

A quote from Advocate Claim Service

 

 

 

When disaster strikes your largest single asset – home – building – business, I pledge to help you get a fair settlement as quickly as possible. It’s important to note that while our service takes a bit longer than simply contacting your insurance company directly and letting them send their adjuster out and offering you a quick settlement, we are working hard for you and taking the necessary time to file a complete and detailed claim that represents your interests in the most comprehensive manner possible. This process maximizes your potential for a higher settlement than you would typically receive. But, you don’t pay us for our time. You only pay us if we get you a settlement. Advocate Claims Public Adjusters handles every aspect of your property insurance claim settlement while maintaining the highest quality of professional service.
