Alan Jones represents insurance carriers, insureds, and employers as part of a broad-based litigation practice involving general litigation, workers’ compensation, insurance coverage, and appellate practice.

As part of his general litigation practice, Alan has represented defendants in cases involving personal injury, directors' and officers' liability, and liquor liability. He also has extensive experience representing general contractors and subcontractors in construction defect cases with exposure in the millions of dollars. Alan also represents insurance carriers and employers in litigated workers' compensation claims and assists in the resolution of workers’ compensation claims small and large.

Alan's experience across these many practice areas also allows for him to provide meaningful and practical advice to his clients. In this regard, Alan has written numerous coverage opinions and represented insurance carriers in declaratory judgments involving Commercial General Liability, Directors and Officers, Homeowners', and other insurance policies. Coverage analysis on these matters have involved underlying cases related to construction defect, prescription drug liability, personal injury, and professional liability, among others.

Alan is a firm believer in the value of a practical and strategic approach to litigation from the pre-litigation phase through final resolution. He strives to provide consistent and reliable advice and representation when his clients need it most, including a vigorous defense strategy and long-term planning. In doing so, he seeks to always take into account the economic, professional, and personal impact of litigation and its outcome.
