Promises kept: A real world LevelEsq coverage success story

The most straightforward, easiest claims process I’ve ever gone through…

As a specialist in medical malpractice and complex personal injury cases, Paul da Costa admits he’s grown a bit skeptical of insurance companies, generally.  

Perhaps you share in this skepticism -- as a company founded by plaintiff attorneys, LevelEsq is more than sympathetic to such sentiments.

Yet after insuring multiple successful cases with Litigation Cost Protection (LCP)—a revolutionary, affordable tool that reimburses all case costs up to policy limits in the event of a loss at trial—da Costa was pleasantly surprised when it came time to file his first claim.  

“Number one, yes, we did get paid—and we got paid in full on the policy,” the certified civil trial attorney and partner at the New Jersey firm of Snyder Sarno D’Aniello Maceri & da Costa tells LevelEsq Co-founder and CEO Justin Leto in a recent wide-ranging interview. “We got paid very expeditiously and without any hassle.”

The benefits extend far beyond claims, however.  

“LCP] definitely gives me that added boost of confidence,” da Costa continues. “And [that extends to] the client as well. From the client’s perspective…they know they have an attorney who is going to go the distance. If I’m buying an insurance product, that’s telling them, ‘There’s no corners being cut here. I’m going to take your case to the mat.’”

All of this, of course, is music to the ears of LevelEsq Co-founder & CEO Justin Leto.

“It’s important to us that people understand that when they use LevelEsq to insure their cases, we’re actually going to do exactly what we say we’re going to do,” Leto says. “Not only are they going to have the feeling of protection, but when they go into the courtroom to try the case and they lose, they’re going to be protected immediately by the policy.”  

“No one likes to lose,” da Costa agrees. “It’s going to happen statistically from time to time. And [LCP] was a real nice thing to have in the end.”  

Thankfully, this one-of-a-kind advantage is also simple to secure: You can apply for and receive a bound policy with up to $500,000 in coverage in minutes at LevelEsq.  (You’ll pay a one-time premium of 7% of your chosen limits.)

That’s it. You’re covered. You can now put the focus back on pursuing justice for your client rather than case costs.  

And, per several state bar ethics opinions, the LCP premium may potentially be passed onto clients upon a settlement or successful trial outcome.

Remember, too, LevelEsq also offers Lawsuit Cost Financing (LCF), a fast, efficient way to finance your case costs and increase your firm’s profitability. Use it separately or in conjunction with LCP to create a powerful synergy for your practice.
