There is a huge burden of proof on the plaintiff to demonstrate that they would have had a different outcome if not for the actions or inactions of the attorney. That’s why 80% of the criminal law claims [...]

What Our Policyholders Are Saying
Mr. Fraim and the inside counsel were cordial and efficient. My inquiries were answered promptly and the staff was very knowledgeable and straight forward.
OAMIC sticks by its insureds more than any other malpractice carrier I have heard of – and I experienced that commitment firsthand. That peace of mind is priceless. I will never leave OAMIC.
I am very satisfied with the handling of our claim. Communication was first rate. I thought the analysis and resolution of the claim was excellent. I received good counsel about the issues.
You guys are the best of the best. I could not have made it through this mess without your kind assistance.
I was with a big, national company that offered cheap rates and made a lot of promises. But, after a few months, I realized none of those promises held true. I switched back to OAMIC and am so glad I did. That was a mistake I will not make again!
I greatly appreciate the prompt and professional way OAMIC dealt with my claim. OAMIC made the situation as painless as such a situation could be.
Although I felt wronged, I was very anxious after my former client sued me. For me, I needed to move on, and the way you handled the claim allowed me to do so.
This was a difficult time for me and I lost many nights of sleep agonizing over error. OAMIC’s handling of the claim was superb, as was the work of outside counsel. Top notch. I was ‘in the loop’ at all times. Thanks so much for your excellent work. I am OAMIC for life.
I had a very frivolous lawsuit filed against me, and OAMIC and my attorney were fantastic. I have discouraged others from straying from OAMIC based on the handling of my claim.
