Lawyers' Professional Liability

Addressing the most commonly overlooked gaps in coverage

USI Affinity is proud to offer the D.C. Bar Lawyers’ Professional Liability Insurance Program, which focuses on addressing the most commonly overlooked gaps in coverage to mitigate claims before they arise.

Featuring several enhanced coverages, including some never seen before in the LPL marketplace – the policy features of the D.C. Bar LPL Insurance program focus on protecting your reputation, your income and your network:

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 Attorneys’ Preferred 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.

Settlement Control

The carrier will never settle a claim on your behalf, without your consent. USI Affinity understands that your reputation is a valuable asset and we want to help you to protect it. Should you choose to fight a claim that you believe has no merit, you will not be responsible to cover the difference between the proposed settlement amount and actual, should the claim be settled against you.
