Insurance Claims


When an insurance claim has been improperly denied (under either life, health, disability, homeowners, commercial or automobile insurance policies), Katz & Lapides represents clients in contesting the wrongful denial. With over 30 years experience, and having successfully handled hundreds of insurance claims, Katz & Lapides has the experience and reputation to give our clients the professional representation they deserve.

Real Estate Disputes

Real estate problems can involve a range of issues, including purchase and sale contracts, partnership disputes, breach of fiduciary duty, commercial leases, property insurance, design and construction defects, and boundary line disputes. Oftentimes, skilled legal analysis and negotiation can result in a favorable outcome.  Voluntary mediation can sometimes resolve disputes earlier and avoid unnecessary litigation costs.

Business Disputes

Business clients need to approach disputes strategically.  It is our belief that many disputes can be resolved through discussion and negotiation, sometimes aided by Mediation.  When negotiation is not successful, Katz & Lapides has the litigation experience and reputation to effectively represent our clients.

Mediator Services

Bob Katz is an experienced Mediator with a high success rate of assisting parties in reaching a resolution of their dispute.  These disputes have been in the areas of insurance claims, real estate, business and personal injury.  Many of these mediations have been complex matters involving multiple parties and attorneys. 

Experience has shown that mediation is often a more satisfactory process of resolution than litigation.  Through effective mediation, early resolution of disputes can be achieved, often at great savings from the alternative of continued litigation.
