|Margaret G. Klein honored by The Brehon Law Society

Margaret was lauded for her accomplishments as a lawyer in New York since 1984 after emigrating from Ireland a few years earlier. The Society recognized Margaret as having set the precedent in 1982 for Irish solicitors, admitted to practice law in the Republic of Ireland, to take the New York Bar exam. It was noted that when she began to practice law in New York, the overwhelming majority of lawyers were men. Margaret was recognized for many years of success as a defense trial attorney, beginning with Fireman's Fund Insurance Company, then with Crum & Forster and now with Greater New York Mutual Insurance Company, where she is Attorney of Record and Vice President of Legal.

GNY Quickly Pays $1,000,000 Claim to New Client
"What happens if you've just moved your business to a new insurer, then suffer a million dollar loss? That's exactly what one of my clients found out right after he moved the coverage for his large condominium complex to GNY. In true GNY fashion, GNY paid the initial, major portion of the loss-$1,000,000-within 90 days of the fire. The company stepped right up to the plate to do the right thing immediately, without being pressured. That just proves the old adage: all insurance companies seem the same, until you have a loss. That's when GNY truly shines." - Paul E. Felsen, CPCU, GNY Producer
Property Owner Says "GNY...No Question!"
One of my property manager clients has a portfolio of different size buildings. I explained to him that he might want to consider insuring different size buildings with different size companies. But after the experience he's had with GNY on just a few of his properties, he stated that his property should be insured with GNY, no question."- Sal LoPinto, GNY Producer
Claims Service Sets GNY Apart from Others
"On Sunday, March 8, 2009, a severe windstorm damaged my client's apartment complex. After he called me to report the loss, I immediately contacted your claims service personnel, who responded with what I can only describe as lightning speed. Although it was a weekend day, a claims representative was on site just hours after the loss occurred! Not only did this incredibly prompt response give me and my client peace of mind, it also illustrated what sets GNY apart from other companies in this industry. I'm proud to be an agent for your company." - Donald E. Wagner, GNY Producer
