Bad Faith

The Hustead Law Firm specializes in the representation of insurers and sureties in all facets of their claim operations. Unfortunately, they are sometimes subject to attack by dissatisfied insureds and obligees; usually without just cause. When it comes to high-stress bad faith litigation, we have experience throughout the Rocky Mountain West. When claims representatives are wrongfully targeted in a bad faith action, we take it personally. And we are not afraid to try the case if a reasonable settlement is not attained.

Underlying our success is our knowledge of coverage law. It's different in almost every state. Helping our clients wind their way through this morass of often conflicting laws, the Firm has distributed thousands of copies of its bad faith publications over the years. Our most recent publication is Good Faith and Fair Dealing: Rocky Mountain Handbook «» 2014. Call for a copy. We give in-house seminars as well. We are here to help you understand the law.

Please see the HLF Territory Map for an idea as to where we work. We do not charge for travel time to the location of a case outside Colorado. We become the local law firm.
