Jeffery A. Korinko is a partner in the firm’s Los Angeles office. Mr. Korinko is very experienced subrogation attorney, having been exclusively dedicated to the prosecution of subrogation matters since 1995. For the last 12 years, he has focused on the handling of property subrogation claims involving fire and water damage losses at commercial as well as at residential properties, most often against product manufacturers/retailers, contractors, utilities, government entities, and/or property owners/tenants.

Mr. Korinko has found that offering clients input on the selection of early involvement experts has proven to be invaluable and generated more favorable subrogation results. In addition, joining experts at loss sites has helped Mr. Korinko to better understand the cause of the loss, the resultant damages and allowed him to engage with the policyholder which helps in all facets of the claim assignment.
