Expert Public Adjusters Help Attorneys & CPA's

A loss to either real and/or personal property regardless if covered by insurance often involves a financial loss that includes significant legal and financial issues. Our experience has been that individual homeowners, community associations, corporations and small businesses will often turn to trusted financial and legal advisors for help or recommendations on the next steps they should take to get their lives and business on a path to recovery.

Professionals in the legal and accounting fields understand the detail and specific knowledge required when utilizing experts who deal in these matters on a daily basis. Certainly one not trained in legal matters would not go to court to represent themselves, nor would one argue and present a case before the IRS without accounting training. Tutwiler & Associates has a long history of assisting attorneys, CPAs, and their clients at their time of a loss. Not only has our firm represented lawyers’ clients, we have also been hired by attorneys in their own loss, be it personal or professional as in fire or water damage to their firm's property.
