How is Advocate Adjusters compensated?
We charge a fixed percentage of the insurance settlement. The size of the contingency will be determined by the size of your loss. Each claim is unique and will be individually evaluated to determine the contingency fee that will be charged.
At what point in the claim process should I hire Advocate Adjusters?
We strongly recommend that you call us before you call your insurance company or agent. Doing so ensures that you will get the professional help you need immediately. Many people are tempted to represent themselves, this can be detrimental to your claim. Once insurance companies take a position, it can make the process more difficult. However, you can enlist our services at any time throughout the claim process.

The short answer is, yes; you are entitled to representation. Signing a contract with Advocate Adjusters insures that we become a legal party to your insurance claim, thus guaranteeing our ability to represent you.
Will my policy be canceled if I hire Advocate Adjusters?
No. It would be a serious violation of state good faith laws if your insurance company were to cancel your policy based off hiring representation. Such action would be considered discriminatory.
