"Contacted Specialty Risk for insurance for my PI license. Others had no idea what I was talking about. Robin had coverage for me in just a few days and I was able to proceed. Very efficient, very professional."

- Ron

"I absolutely can't begin to explain how happy we are with Specialty Risk. When we were involved in an accident they stepped in and went to bat for us which I have never had an agent do, Cami was quite the bulldog and fought for us. Then again they stepped up with the recent loss of one of our horses which was insured through their Hartford policy. Cindy went above her normal office duties to help us with this. Chip has always been a great agent for us as well. Top notch service and they always look out for your best interest. I could go on all day about their great staff."

- Rebecca
