Insurance Counseling

Join us for a free small-group workshop in which we'll explain what your policies cover and what they don't, and determine if you're paying too much or are carrying more risk than you realize. If you don't have a policy, we'll help you understand how to shop for one.

We'll also come to your block association, tenant association, civic organization, or other group meeting and speak with your attendees.

We do not sell insurance. If you'd like a list of insurance agents we're comfortable sharing with clients, please ask.
