“Lawyers Professional Liability”. “Errors & Omissions”. “Malpractice”. Coverage for your professional discipline goes by many names. Regardless of what you call it, this coverage is one of the most unique in the insurance industry. It is also the single most important coverage you need as a licensed professional. Clients look to you to provide solutions for them “by the letter of the law”, and it can be a stressful task. Invariably, there will be mistakes and you need the confidence that your insurance counselor has issued your coverage correctly when they occur. You also want to make sure that they understand what you are doing within the legal world. Not all areas of practice are alike. At Vista Insurance Group, we have been insuring all types of firms throughout SC, NC and GA for years. We have worked with over 500 clients and utilize various markets to provide the right fit for small-mid-sized firms. From the main street America generalist to the certified specialist, we’ve got you covered.
