Dewey Dodson is a member of Shackelford’s Insurance Litigation and Coverage Practice Group and represents national and international insurance companies, third-party administrators, adjusters, brokers, and engineers in disputes with policyholders involving different types of first-party coverage and liability issues.
Dewey provides counsel to those companies regarding their rights and responsibilities and serves as trial counsel in coverage and bad faith actions. Dewey offers his clients timely, creative, and practical advice regarding the defense and resolution of their claims in the context of the client’s overall business needs.
Dewey assists insurance companies in non-litigation contexts as well. He analyzes coverage issues after a loss has occurred but before a coverage decision has been made. He prepares efficient and accurate coverage opinions, assists third-party administrators and adjusters in drafting coverage position letters, and assists insurers in responding to insurance-related complaints or inquiries from various Departments of Insurance.
Dewey’s professional achievements led him to be recognized by his peers as a rising star in the area of Insurance Coverage Defense and Business Litigation by Super Lawyers.
Although Dewey concentrates his practice in the areas of insurance coverage and bad faith, he also represents insurance companies in third-party personal insurance disputes involving commercial auto accidents, admiralty law, premises liability, professional liability, vicarious liability, dangerous animals, hazing, libel/slander, construction defects, and other negligence-based actions.
