Insurance Defense

Insurance Defense is our Forte


The insurance defense attorneys at Cummins Law have decades of insurance defense experience and provide legal advice and representation to insurance companies and self-insured corporations throughout northeastern Pennsylvania. Our attorneys have extensive experience defending insurance claims, reviewing insurance coverage issues, and litigating subrogation matters for our clients at every level of the Pennsylvania state and federal courts. We are dedicated to providing prompt, efficient, and responsive insurance defense work on every one of our assignments.

Attorney Daniel E. Cummins is the only insurance defense attorney in all of northeastern Pennsylvania to be selected to appear in the national directory The Best Lawyers in America under the category of "Personal Injury - Defense." Only 5% of all attorneys in the entire United States have been selected to appear in this directory.

Also, in 2014, Attorney Cummins was selected by the Pennsylvania Defense Institute to receive their annual "Distinguished Defense Counsel of the Year" Award, recognizing his excellence in defense litigation and his service to the bar. Since 2015, Attorney Cummins has also been annually selected to appear on the list of Super Lawyers in Pennsylvania.

Although the attorneys at Cummins Law have earned a reputation for excellent trial practice and results through their litigation skills, we commit our best efforts to resolving your problems as soon as possible without resorting to trial whenever possible. We understand how expensive litigation can be, and know that sometimes litigation may not be the best option in your case. We also understand that one never knows how a jury may rule in any given matter. For these reasons, our attorneys routinely utilize arbitration and mediation to settle disputes for clients in a more efficient manner and at a greatly reduced cost, facilitating settlements that have your company’s or your insured's best interests in mind.

From our offices in Clarks Summit (just outside of Scranton), we defend companies and clients all throughout northeastern Pennsylvania. We cover the counties that extend as far west as Williamsport, PA, as far north as the NY border, as far east as the NJ border, and as far south as the Allentown area.
