Patricia A. Lynn-Ford, Esq.
Patricia A. Lynn-Ford joined the Lynn Law Firm in 1989, after four years of private practice with two large law firms in New York City, where she handled commercial and insurance defense litigation.
For over two decades, Ms. Lynn-Ford has successfully handled a wide variety of challenging insurance coverage claims on behalf of individuals and businesses. The positive results are due to well-developed litigation strategy, attention to detail and thorough preparation. Clients are given candid advice, and prepared for the process of pursing coverage enforcement through litigation. She advocates for clients seeking enforcement of insurance coverage and who may also have been victims of unfair or deceptive claims handling by their insurance companies.
