Jacobsen & McElroy is a defense litigation firm with a focus on construction defect, mold, environmental, product liability, premises liability and other complex general liability matters for insurance companies, third party administrators, self-insured clients and business clients.

Each attorney has an excellent reputation in the handling of these matters. The focus of Jacobsen & McElroy is to provide clients with solutions and results at a reasonable expense. Each and every client of the firm is entitled to the highest levels of professionalism, service and judgment. Each attorney understands the significant cost that litigation imposes upon our clients. We focus on early evaluation and timely reporting to our clients. This early evaluation addresses all liability and damage issues, which allows us to facilitate quick and efficient resolutions or to provide you with our recommendations on further handling to evaluate only those issues in dispute.

The foundation for effective litigation management is a team approach and close working relationships between the claims professional, client and the attorney. In order to achieve effective litigation management, the attorneys will provide timely reports, evaluations, and budgets. Our lawyers are extremely progressive and creative in the use of alternative dispute resolution methods to obtain advantageous settlements. We have great success with ADR and we endeavor to find solutions that protect our clients from the time and expense of litigation. However, when proceeding to trial is necessary, we provide aggressive representation.

Our clients benefit from our expertise and are assured of accountability, prompt response and a team approach with the claims handler in planning our litigation strategy. Our purpose is to advance the interests of clients with professional vigor and to conclude litigation with maximum results for a minimum outlay.
