About Us
Hanna & Plaut, L.L.P. formed in February, 1998. Our practice includes insurance coverage and insurance "bad faith" litigation and workers' compensation matters, as well as general commercial litigation, at both the trial and appellate levels throughout the state. Although Hanna & Plaut is a full-service law firm, our primary focus is insurance. At Hanna & Plaut we believe an important component of our success is in our responsiveness to the questions and concerns of our clients. Hanna & Plaut's attorneys are well-versed in all areas of insurance coverage and provide coverage opinions for all different types of policies. Hanna & Plaut also provides advice at the claims handling level as well as aggressive defense in litigation. Hanna & Plaut provides seminars on various coverage and claims handling issues as a service to its clients.
