Stephen R. Katzman successfully defeated the claim of a Neptune homeowner, who was believed to have set fi re to his home, by establishing, with the help of a computer forensic analyst, that the insured submitted computer altered documents in violation of the “Fraud” provision of the insurance policy.

Bill Bloom obtained summary judgment on a sidewalk fall-down case in Middlesex County. Plaintiff claimed he was walking in the side yard of the insured’s property when he was caused to fall as a result of a hole or uneven ground shrouded by overgrown grass. Plaintiff suffered a significant leg fracture which resulted in three surgeries. Through careful discovery, including aerial photographs and surveys, we were able to establish that the fall occurred not on the insured’s property but on the neighboring property.
