PRACTICE AREAS

Insurance Defense

Insurance Defense

The foundation of Curtin Law is insurance defense. Our firm is fortunate to represent many prominent property and casualty insurance companies. Our insurance defense practice has grown based upon our core philosophy of excellence in case preparation, litigation expertise, communication with our clients, and an awareness that litigation costs must be directly related to only activities necessary for the proper handling of the defense.

Construction Law

Construction Law

Curtin Law aggressively and effectively defends contractors, developers, architects and engineers in various construction matters including claims of construction defects, pollution claims, contract disputes and fire losses. We recognize the need to work with a fine group of experts to focus on the details, so important in the construction realm, to make certain our clients have an effective and strong team to fight for them.

Special Investigations Unit

Special Investigations Unit

Curtin Law is one of the few law firms that has participated in investigations which resulted in federal law enforcement intervention. One particular project consumed several years and resulted in a medical care facility which, at its height, billed several million dollars per year in the northeast Ohio area being reduced to one facility with a small percentage of its aggregate revenue base. A complete insurance defense firm must be aware that insurance fraud is always a concern and therefore, our firm has years of training and expertise in the completion of Examinations Under Oath, working with experts in cause and origin of fires, homeowners’ losses, as well as other numerous special projects.

Premises Liability

Premises Liability

Curtin Law represents business owners and property owners involved in litigation arising from allegations of unsafe premises leading to falls or other injuries as well as claims of loss due to failures of security or maintenance.

Business Litigation

Business Litigation

Curtin Law has recognized that many businesses basically surrender monies in settlement predicated upon the fear of prolonged and expensive litigation. Curtin & Curtin is an established trial firm therefore enabling our firm to promote an earlier settlement, and more importantly, possesses the ability to try a case to a conclusion if necessary. Our firm has handled cases in state and federal courts including areas involving contract, fraud, employment related issues, consumer sales practices acts, and all aspects of tort litigation which impact our business clients.
