Meeting June 16 on FEMA’s reopening of Sandy flood insurance claims


Members of Washington, DC-based firm of Weisbrod Matteis & Copley, including August Matteis, who have extensive experience in flood insurance litigation as it relates to natural disasters, will lead a discussion on FEMA’s recent reopening of flood insurance claims and explain how best to navigate the process.

They will be joined by an independent appraiser who will discuss the intricacies of engineering reports and the specifics involved in gathering and submitting new reports to FEMA. Matteis was lead counsel in a lawsuit in Mississippi in which a jury found that a FEMA insurer had committed fraud in adjusting Hurricane Katrina claims for FEMA.

Tuesday, June 16, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Long Beach Hotel, 405 East Broadway, Long Beach

This event is open to the public and there is no charge to attend. It is intended to serve home and business policyholders who have opted in or are considering opting in to have their Hurricane Sandy flood claims reopened. For more information, 877-797-4432
