Hurricane Sandy, meet Mighty Wind

by Walter Olson on March 22, 2013

A Houston-based trial lawyer has some grandiose plans for snagging New York storm-insurance cases: Steve Mostyn “indicates his firm should be able to take on more than $1 billion in disputed claims — or half of all the Sandy litigation.” That’s assuming clients sign on, of course. One who did was a swim club owner from Pound Ridge who was frustrated dealing with New York lawyers and quickly signed a contract with Mostyn’s firm: “It is worth the 40 percent just for someone to listen to my story and be kind to me,” she said.

I would have been kind for 35%.

Hell, I can be kind for 10%. I’m not a lawyer, but I can sure do ‘kind’.

Between insurance companies that notoriously underpay claims and predatory lawyers, there are no good guys in this story. Sigh.
