Meet our Team

Maloney Lauersdorf Reiner takes a team approach to our client’s insurance coverage disputes.  When you retain one of our attorneys, you will have the benefit of knowing that we will utilize experience of everyone at the firm to ensure that you obtain the best possible result.  Our lawyers have more than fifty years of combined experience litigating and analyzing insurance coverage issues. Although we primarily represent clients in Oregon and Washington, our lawyers have handled matters in a number of jurisdictions throughout the country. 

We have extensive knowledge regarding the issues that come with an insurance coverage dispute and the experience to effectively represent your interests.  Each of our attorneys has worked in a large insurance litigation law firm, but chose to move to this small firm in order to dedicate the necessary attention to each of our clients’ matters.  At Maloney Lauersdorf Reiner, our sole focus is using our knowledge and experience to provide the best legal representation on your insurance coverage dispute.
