The D.C. Bar Lawyers Professional Liability Insurance Program

Through your membership with the D.C. Bar, you have access to the D.C. Bar Lawyers’ Professional Liability Insurance Program, administered by USI Affinity, with exclusive insurance and benefit solutions not available to the general public. This includes an exclusive lawyers’ professional liability offering to protect D.C. area attorneys against legal malpractice claims.

Unparalleled Protection – Based on Experience – That is what the D.C. Bar and USI Affinity have built. Together, they have created a Lawyers’ Professional Liability offering for D.C. area attorneys that addresses the risks that keep lawyers up at night.

With over 50 years of experience in lawyers' professional liability insurance and more than 40,000 attorneys insured, USI Affinity has the inside knowledge and market leverage to design comprehensive and innovative insurance and benefits packages for D.C. area law firms, with proprietary coverages not offered in any other policy.

Our latest enhancement to the policy – Fee Suit Avoidance

Fee Suit Avoidance – In the event that an outstanding fee remains unpaid by a client, instead of suing for fees, which may result in a counter suit for malpractice, the D.C. Bar LPL Insurance Program policy will allow for one fee, up to $10,000, to be reimbursed from the carrier. With the average US LPL claim at about $75,000, this could potentially protect the firm's reputation from the negative impact of a counter claim for malpractice.

High-Caliber Customer Service – You work hard to keep your clients happy and we want to do the same for you. Our highly skilled LPL specialists are here to answer your questions and help you understand how your policy can protect you in various situation. Having more than 50 years of experience in protecting attorneys, we are ready for your call.
