Bernadette Dono, Esq.
Accomplished attorney with twenty years of extensive experience in insurance coverage, litigation and arbitration. Skilled insurance program director with significant experience in nonprofit and captive insurance company management. Agile team leader, adept at motivating and mentoring employees to achieve optimal performance, growth and results.
I have spent more than 20 years in the insurance defense, litigation, underwriting and claims coverage spaces. I possess an in-depth understanding of policy forms and endorsements, including Cyber Liability, General Liability, D&O, Professional Indemnity, Media Liability, Commercial Property, Homeowners and Automobile. In this age of leaner—and perhaps, less seasoned—staffing at carriers and law firms, I see a need for a coverage expert, whom you can retain, by-project, seasonally or by long term arrangement, to draft, interpret or opine on policies, endorsements and/or claims, quickly, affordably and succinctly. I also offer a host of additional insurance coverages services. Please contact me to discuss potential arrangements that could help you function more effectively and profitably.
