Steve Wedemeyer devotes his practice to defending individuals, corporations, small businesses, insurers, and insurance adjusters in state and federal court throughout Texas and elsewhere, including insurance contract, insurance bad faith, fraud, deceptive trade practices, construction, products liability, energy, catastrophic accidents, personal injury, and wrongful death.
For many years, Steve has advised and represented clients in commercial disputes, including first party insurance disputes, many involving fire, hail, mold, windstorm and other catastrophes involving multi-family habitational properties, hotels, retail centers, office buildings and other commercial properties. Steve has advised and represented clients in connection with catastrophic accidents and other incidents that have resulted in personal injuries, property damage and business interruption.
While his experience includes first- and third-party insurance coverage matters, Steve has largely focused on analysis, evaluation and litigation of first-party insurance contractual and extra-contractual matters since 2000. In addition to representing insurers and adjusters in insurance litigation, Steve helps his clients avoid litigation by evaluating their insurance policies and claims practices before disputes arise. If a lawsuit is filed, his many years of experience allows him to evaluate the matter “early on” including realistically identifying actual risk, based not on mere allegations but on concrete evidence and the likely perceptions of a jury.
