USI - NYSBA Member Testimonial:
"To my fellow New York State Bar Association Members:
After being an associate and of counsel in large law firms for almost 18 years, I decided to become a solo practitioner. At that time, now eight years ago, I used a broker recommended by a friend and went through the process of purchasing professional malpractice liability insurance - something I was not at all familiar with and that I did not need to address during my years at my former law firms. This year I encountered a problem in renewing my policy with the broker I had been using, and was facing an urgent time issue so that my policy would not lapse. Since I am a member of the NYS Bar Association, I turned to USI for assistance. I was extremely fortunate to find Lana James-Moore at USI. She was able to turn an extremely stressful experience around and my policy was successfully renewed without delay. Lana was a true professional, an advocate, courteous, and comforting every single step of the way. I could not possibly thank her enough for assisting me. I would urge all attorneys requiring insurance to go to the best source that truly understands the needs of attorneys and that call should be made to Lana James-Moore at USI." Bea Grossman,
Esq., Grossman Law, PLLC, Rockville Centre, NY
