O’Toole Scrivo provides unmatched service and representation to insurance carriers and their insureds in a wide array of industries and professions. Our representation begins in the pre-claims stage and, when necessary, continues through discovery, motion practice, alternative dispute resolution, trial, and appeal. The firm understands the needs of the insurance industry. We have assisted insurance carriers to revamp their panel counsel systems to prioritize early resolution strategies without sacrificing high-quality legal representation.

O’Toole Scrivo has a deep bench of seasoned, diverse, and aggressive trial lawyers. Our team includes former Assistant Prosecutors and District Attorneys, Supreme Court of New Jersey Certified Civil Trial Attorneys, and recognized and honored New York trial counsel. Our team of attorneys channels this depth of experience into tailored, streamlined, and successful case resolution strategies for each insured that we represent.

As a courtesy to our insurance clients, we regularly present Continuing Legal Education seminars on cutting edge issues facing the insurance industry.

Early Resolution Program

Our attorneys regularly achieve successful resolutions for clients without the need for prolonged and costly litigation. We accomplish this through effective issue spotting, intensive investigation, and continuous communication with adversaries. Our attorneys work closely with clients and claims professionals from the outset to develop targeted defense and resolution strategies.


Our team has extensive litigation and trial experience, appearing regularly in State and Federal Courts throughout New Jersey and New York. We have successfully defended clients in areas including premises liability, auto negligence, personal injury defense, construction and work-related losses, professional liability, environmental litigation, contractual liability, mass tort, and other claims.

Monitoring Counsel

Insurers often retain O’Toole Scrivo as monitoring counsel in complex and catastrophic cases. As monitoring counsel, we perform independent reviews of matters and provide input on liability and damages to allow our insurance clients to anticipate exposure in various layer of coverage.


Clients and insurance carriers routinely call on us to spearhead investigations and develop defense strategies in anticipation of potential litigation. We are often called on immediately when a catastrophic incident arises to preserve evidence for litigation.
