What are the Most Common Legal Representation Needs for Insurance Licensees in California?
The California Department of Insurance, or CDI, regulates insurance professionals and companies throughout the state.
Some of the more common notices of an investigation by the CDI include allegations of:
- Add-on Product Matters
- Affordable Care Act Compliance
- Bail Insurance Misconduct
- Civil Litigation
- Claims Examinations
- Class Actions
- Coverage & Bad Faith Litigation
- Criminal Charges
- Elder Abuse and Exploitation
- Fraudulent or Unauthorized Insurance Companies
- Insurance Adjustment Disputes
- Insurance Premium Theft
- Marketing Conduct Examinations
- Public Adjuster Violations
- SIU Compliance
- Title Insurance Rebate Fraud and Kickbacks
- Using Deceptive Practices or Fraud
If you or your company has received a notice of investigation by the CDI, our experienced insurance defense attorneys prepare, design, and plan expert responses and strategies that are in your best interests and in compliance with our state and federal laws.
What Happens Once Contact From The CDI Turns Into a Case?
Once contact from the CDI evolves into an actual case, the investigator will file an internal report, which may result in the filing of a statement of issues, denying an application for licensure, or an accusation, seeking to discipline an existing licensee through a warning, public reproval, probation, suspension, or complete revocation.
If a case is filed, we will defend our client in the Office of Administrative Hearings, or OAH. We engage in discovery, attempt a settlement, and then go to an evidentiary hearing, or trial, if necessary.
After the trial, the Administrative Law Judge, or ALJ, issues a Proposed Decision, which is then either adopted or not adopted by the CDI.
If the CDI adopts a decision unfavorable to the client, we can seek Reconsideration, and if that is denied, or not sought at all, then we can proceed to file a Petition for Writ of Administrative Mandamus or Mandate in the Superior Court.
We will attempt to resolve it in a way that saves your license, protects your reputation, and minimizes or eliminates any disciplinary actions.
We will also use our litigation skills and unique experience to provide premier defense services aimed at protecting the license critical to your work and career if charges arise from the complaint.
