Your Legal Guidance Through Recovery

Attorney Todd Wiseman



When Todd graduated from law school in 1993, he was hired by one of the world's largest insurance companies to handle insurance claims of all kinds. When he was hired, he was told that he would be helping people solve serious problems during at a time of tremendous loss. Helping people was exactly what Todd wanted to do.

In reality, that insurance company quickly showed its true colors. To the insurer, nothing was more important than money, that included people who were suffering a tremendous loss. Todd understood that the real objective was to pay people as little as possible, despite the significance of a loss. That did not sit well with Todd.

As a former house counsel for a major insurance company, Todd has seen it all. He knows all the tricks and the games. He knows how to stop them, and he has not represented an insurance company since 1997. He formed this Firm because he saw a tremendous opportunity to serve people and to level a very uneven playing field for victims of negligence and insurance company abuse.

Mr. Wiseman has served as an expert in cases involving allegations of insurance bad faith, violations of insurance laws and regulations. He has presented continuing legal education seminars to other lawyers on these same issues.

Todd is a proud native of Wood County, West Virginia. He resides in Wood County with his wife.
