Martica Douglas is known to fellow members of the Maine Bar as one of the State’s top insurance coverage lawyers. A Westlaw search confirms that over the past 35 years she has argued many landmark coverage cases before Maine’s highest court. She is an expert in the mechanics of using both Declaratory Judgment and Reach & Apply actions to resolve coverage issues, and her advice is sought by policyholders, insurers, and her colleagues in the Bar. Because of her extensive knowledge in this area, she can often provide answers to questions in a single telephone call or quick email exchange, minimizing legal fees or even making a fee unnecessary.
Martica finds that insurance coverage cases typically present interesting legal issues, the resolution of which is important not just to the parties, but to all insurers that cover the same risk, as well as to policyholders. Even insurance rates can be impacted by the Maine Court’s decision in an important coverage case, because the risk of loss is shared by all persons who purchase coverage.
Martica welcomes informal conversation about these issues. For more information or to schedule a consultation, contact Martica Douglas by email or call (207) 774-1486.
