Lawyers

Throughout Amity's decades of service in the lawyer’s professional market, one of the unfortunate truths we have learned is that good law firms get sued.

History has proven that firms of all sizes, areas of practice, and geographical location, are dragged into untidy and costly matters. Amity has the expertise to help mitigate these stressful times by finding firms an insurer that best fit their particular practice.

Malpractice Insurance is one of your single most important purchases and should not be purchased on price alone. Like most things in life, you get what you pay for. When you have a personal medical or legal concern you would seek the advice of a specialist, the same holds true with your professional insurance. Although many agencies say they offer these products, few are familiar with the companies offering specific coverage and the differences between policies. Align yourself with an agent or agency such as Amity that specializes in meeting the insurance needs of the legal community.


Legal Malpractice

Legal Malpractice Insurance often referred to as Errors and Omissions or Legal Professional Liability Insurance, is a necessity in today’s litigious environment.


Low cost premiums and simplified applications may lure office administrators and attorneys, often overwhelmed with the day to day business of the law firm. It is important to realize that all legal malpractice policies are not alike. Rest assured that as an Amity client you will be offered the best coverage available at the most competitive price. We pride ourselves on our knowledge, honesty and integrity, and have been recognized as the best source of Professional Liability Insurance by the readers of the “Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly”, each year since 1996.


Our staff looks forward to having the opportunity to do an in depth insurance needs assessment and/or policy comparison for your firm.
