Mr. Latherow has also represented insurance companies in these types of cases, and he has also defended them in other types of litigation, including property loss or damage claims and employment-related issues such as discrimination and wrongful termination. In addition to his courtroom work, his experience in mediation often allows him to help his clients obtain favorable results on these matters through the use of that form of alternative dispute resolution.
