Previous Insurance Defense Experience

The Schenck Law Firm, in Newport Beach, California, handles a wide variety of personal injury claims for people who have been injured due to the negligence of others. We are led by our founding lawyer, Douglas A. Schenck, who has more than 20 years of experience on both sides of personal injury law. Before starting our firm, Mr. Schenck worked for one of the largest insurance defense firms in the country as a trial attorney, handling many of their toughest and most complex catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases throughout the state of California and across the country.

Mr. Schenck's knowledge and insight into how insurance companies evaluate claims and set reserves is invaluable in helping the firm understand the steps needed to be taken in order to prepare and present the best case on your behalf. The firm undertakes a thorough and comprehensive investigation of each case that it considers and is very selective about the matters in which it engages its representation. Every case will be handled directly by Mr. Schenck. The firm is battle-tested and 100 percent committed to taking every case it takes on to trial. Your case will be no different. In fact, from the very outset, the litigation strategy of the firm is to prepare every case under the assumption that each case will be tried.
