Stephanie has advised insurers on all manners of coverage and alleged bad faith in Washington since 1992. She has successfully tried to verdict both coverage and bad faith cases, including a federal court multi-million dollar covenant judgment settlement case in which the jury found no bad faith.
Stephanie advises on coverage and bad faith for all types of first- and third-party coverage lines, and has defended insurers against bad faith, IFCA class actions and the bad faith suits that typically follow underlying covenant judgment settlement actions. She likes to get involved in a claim as early as possible to minimize her clients’ exposure to Washington alleged extra-contractual (bad faith, CPA and IFCA) liability.
