Have an Insurance Disputes?
Tampa First Party Insurance Claims Attorney
First party insurance claims are submitted by the person who either owns the damaged property or the person that is named as the insured of the damaged property. With first party claims, the person that is insured by his or her policy is the first party, and in the event of an accident, injury, or another loss, whether it was caused by itself or as a result of someone else (a third party), the insured may file a claim.
Therefore, the first party (you) is making a claim for some type of damages that occurred to their home and/or their personal property contained within their home.
At Mandelbaum Trichler Law Center, P.A., our Tampa insurance dispute attorneys have an extensive background in working in insurance defense and/or in-house counsel. Our insider insurance perspective gives us a unique level of insight into the insurance industry, and a comprehensive understanding of the tactics used by insurance companies to underpay on or deny valid claims altogether.

If I could give Ernie Trichler 10 stars, I definitely would - 5 stars is not enough. Ernie aided myself & family with my mother’s wrongful death case. He didn’t care that she was 100 years old. Ernie is professional, trustworthy, and most importantly, he knows the law. He answered his phone every time I called with questions and he always had the answers. I interviewed at least 4 different attorneys and there was no doubt that Ernie is above and beyond them all. If you are in need of an attorney within the realm of his expertise, I highly recommend Ernie Trichler.- Sandy L

I went through a very traumatic accident that left me hospitalized for a month and in recovery for much longer. It was such a difficult and expensive process that I never thought I'd ever recover from. Jennifer Mandelbaum took care of me from day 1 making sure I never had to stress which was so amazing for me as to this day suffer from terrible PTSD. She not only made sure that I was taken care of but also that I was treated like family and she walked me through every step, ensuring that I was properly represented and didn't have to struggle with my bills for all my specialized doctors and care. I couldn't recommend a better firm to take care of you in your moment of need!- Nicole Clark

I would have been lost without Jennifer's guidance and expertise dealing with auto insurance companies. She made the entire process manageable so I could focus on my injuries. From beginning to end she was always available to addres all my questions and concerns. She kept me informed at all times and settled my case for more than I had expected. I highly recommend Jennifer Mandelbaum. Hopefully I will not need her in the future but if I do I she's the attorney I'll call. Thank you so much for such outstanding job Jennifer!- Sandy Shores
Ernie was the epitome of a silver lining in an unfortunate situation. Having never dealt with an attorney in any sort of professional capacity, I was quite intimidated by the prospect. However, Ernie quickly put my mind at ease. Throughout the entirety of my case, he kept in constant contact with me. He updated me on new developments every step of the way and was more than willing to decipher all legal jargon that came my way. He worked tirelessly to yield the best possible results from my case. From the day of our first interaction, I knew the case was in capable hands.- Cullen Murphy
I have to say that I am very pleased with the Trichler Law Center. Ernie handled my case in a very timely and professional manner. He kept me informed every step of way, I was very IMPRESSED in the way he worked with the defense attorneys to get me a very satisfactory settlement. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance. Thank you for a job well done!!- Donnie
