Crop insurance cases are routinely fought and decided in mandatory claims arbitration and agency administrative review outside of the state and federal court systems. Although lawyers must have separate local licenses for each state or federal court where we appear, there is no such requirement in arbitration and administrative review proceedings. For this reason, farmers facing denied crop claims are generally free to choose a lawyer based on skill, experience and ability, not just local admission. We have more than twenty-five years of experience in these cases, and appreciate the opportunity to advise you.
We are also pleased to provide representation in traditional civil and criminal cases on behalf of producers and agribusiness clients in the state and federal courts. These may include suits against insurance agents for errors and negligence in obtaining your coverage; suits against landlords, tenants, trespassers, adjoining landowners and people and businesses who have breached their contractual duties to you; civil and criminal fraud cases; and judicial appeals of adverse agency decisions. We are licensed in the courts in Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee. In other states, we can associate with a local attorney and work in cooperation to represent your interests.
