In welcoming Chuck, Ben, Katelynn and Tiffany, Ben Peoples, one of TT&H’s managing partners, had this to say: “We couldn’t imagine a more natural fit. Like us, the group that has joined our firm primarily services the property and casualty risk management and insurance industry. Our firm focuses on two things: service and results. We knew that this group of legal professionals provides exceptional service and results because our common clients told us so and we have witnessed it firsthand while representing opposing parties in cases with them in the past. In addition to common clients, they also represent clients who are new to our firm. We suspect these new clients will be attracted to our ability to provide a wide array of legal claims services for multiple lines of risks, in multiple jurisdictions, which we are able to do at a fair price via our closely-knit network of a dozen offices throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. We take great pride in our team’s unique insurance industry experience. This group deepens that experience and further binds us with that industry. Chuck spent around two decades working as a claims adjuster before practicing law, and Ben has spent his entire career working for that industry. And, they have brought two bright young associates with them. Besides all of that, we knew that they would fit perfectly into the great culture that we have built over the past 45 years because we have known Chuck and Ben personally and professionally for years. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to our team.”
