Tutwiler Professional Certified Public Adjusters

Hiring Our Adjusters Puts Your Insurance to Work for You

With over 150 combined years of loss consulting and property insurance claims adjusting experience, the public adjusters from Tutwiler & Associates bring expert credentials in all phases of the property insurance claim adjusting process. We also aim to set the industry standards with our commitment to professionalism and ethical standards and a strong understanding of the importance of representing the best interests of the policyholder. Our knowledge of property policies and pre-loss strategies as well as our experience in claims investigation and handling is why we are consistently being called upon to assist businesses, apartment complexes, commercial property managers, condominium associations, and government, with their property claim or financial loss issues.

Our offices are strategically located throughout the state of Florida allowing you to meet with our highly-trained staff at any time to discuss your residential or commercial insurance loss or denied claim crisis. Many of our public insurance adjusters are also licensed in other states including: Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia, and U.S. Virgin Islands and regularly travel to those markets to meet with clients and manage their insurance claims.

The public adjusters at Tutwiler and Associates offer you impeccable credentials and are recognized nationwide as one of the leaders in the insurance loss adjusting field. Our CEO, Dick Tutwiler is a founding member and has served as President of such organizations as the Windstorm Insurance Network (WIND) and the Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (FAPIA) notwithstanding his valuable time and service to the National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (NAPIA). Many of our adjusters started their careers working as adjusters for insurance companies and thus understand the internal workings of the claims process and the pitfalls that can prevent a fair claims settlement. All of our adjusters participate in hours of certified training each year to keep current on the latest property insurance coverage and claims handling issues. Our team is consistently called upon to share their knowledge at industry conferences and has published numerous articles on public adjusting and insurance claims topics.
