What is a Public Adjuster?
A public adjuster is a professional insurance claims handler who advocates for the policyholder in negotiating a policyholder’s insurance claim.
Just as a claims adjuster is paid by the insurance company to look out for the best interest of the insurance company, a public adjuster looks out for the best interest of the insured. Armed with a deep understanding of the insurance industry and claims process, public adjusters like Paladin Insurance Advocates almost always substantially increase the settlement value offered to the policyholder.

Paladin saved the day! They helped us to complete the inventory and to navigate the relationship with our insurance to finally achieve the best possible outcome. We are so grateful that we had their assistance! We could not have done it alone."
I would recommend very highly Shawn Blank to anyone who has a need to deal with insurance companies. He can get you what you paid into the insurance company that otherwise you would never get if you were to tackle it on your own.
So if life throws you a lemon, hire Shawn Blank, Paladin Insurance Advocates; he will make sure you get a healthy pitcher of lemonade!"
Shawn immediately let me know what my rights were and what I was entitled to per my policy. Within two days my family and I were moved into a home comparable to our own, and Shawn and his team were fast to work to get my house put back together.
The Paladin Insurance Advocates team is very responsive with great communication and knowledge. They went above and beyond my expectations. I truly believe if it was not for Shawn and his team I would be in debt and by family would be living in an unsafe home."
Without a doubt we would absolutely recommend Paladin. Shawn and his staff will absolutely fight for everything you believe you deserve. The one thing that I personally noticed with Shawn and his staff was their commitment to us and how they kept us in the loop. Their communication was second to none. If we emailed, called or texted, we would always get a response if not immediately then sometime within the day.
YES, we would absolutely recommend Paladin! Thank you so much Shawn, Patti and Jessica."
We hired Shawn after he explained what he did and he was able to get us four times what the insurance company had offered me and my home was repaired and our son's health restored. I honestly don't know where we would be if Shawn hadn't crossed our path. I never knew that something out there existed to help people make sure they are taken care of and not victims of corporate greed."
