I have had the privilege of working with attorney Chad Wootton for over 10 years. In my prior roles as Senior Claims Attorney and Managing Claims Attorney for Monitor Liability Managers, a member company of W.R. Berkley Corporation which specializes in executive and professional liability insurance, both I and members of my team utilized Chad extensively for coverage investigation, coverage analysis and coverage litigation. Chad is an astute attorney who understands the nuances required by insurance carriers. His coverage acumen is extensive, and he pinpoints issues quickly and provides efficient, sound and cost-effective coverage advice and counsel. As a litigator, Chad is an excellent advocate while remaining cognizant of both the practicalities and costs of litigation, and he continuously investigates opportunities for potential resolution, without compromising aggression. Most importantly, Chad is an outstanding negotiator, and he achieves success in resolving both unassuming matters involving minimal exposure to highly complex matters involving exposures well into seven figures.
In the decade-plus I have worked with Chad, he has successfully resolved countless matters, and without hesitation I offer an unqualified recommendation.

I have worked with Chad Wootton since 2001. Over the past 14 years, my positions have included heading the claims department at Monitor Liability Managers ("Monitor") and serving as a Claim Leader at the Hanover Insurance Group ("Hanover"). At Monitor and Hanover, I have been responsible for managing claims involving Lawyers' and Accountants' Professional Liability Insurance policies, Employment Practice Liability policies, Directors & Officers policies, Management Liability Insurance and Non-Profit policies.
Having been a Claims Officer at both large and small companies I have come to appreciate effective and efficient legal representation. Chad approaches each case with those two attributes; effectiveness and efficiency, in mind.
Chad's competency level as a legal technician matches those lawyers at the highest end of the professional spectrum. He combines that expertise with the ability to bring people together when a case requires a carefully crafted resolution strategy. Also, Chad has obtained excellent results in litigating against some of the top national and international law firms in the United States.
In short, Chad exhibits integrity and an unquestionable work ethic. I would not hesitate to utilize Wootton Law Group's services under any circumstances. In fact, I find their approach to case management quite refreshing.

I have had the privilege of working with Chad Wootton for over four years. Chad was our primary "go to" coverage lawyer for complex coverage issues in California while I was Claims Manager at Monitor Liability Managers. Chad was instrumental in resolving and litigating coverage matters involving Professional Liability claims in California and neighboring states. Chad also provided important California Fair Claims Act training to the staff. I found Chad to be responsive and professional and, importantly, extremely competent regarding complex insurance coverage issues including, but not limited to Cumis issues, reservation of rights letters, denials of coverage and coverage litigation. I had many files that I assigned to Chad and also attended several mediations with him. We were able to successfully resolve some very complex matters. I have first-hand knowledge of his skills and abilities and I am proud to recommend Chad Wootton for insurance coverage work.

I was recommended to Amy Wootton from an attorney, friend of mine. It ended up to be a terrific recommendation, not only because I won a very difficult case, but because she has the rare combination of understanding people and how to negotiate with them; as well as the ability to think quickly on her feet and expertly represent her client. I am also a demanding person and she handled me quite well.
