Colorado jurisdiction is really a hot topic. The law is in flux with appeals and challenges. And then our solicitors got a bizarre email yesterday from an alleged reporter with Law Week Colorado :
I'm writing an article for Law Week Colorado and I'm looking for some posts and answers from employees of the Merlin Law Group. Especially regarding the ethics involved in assessment / unauthorized / public adjustment and the claim process; or as some have suggested the lack of ethical interference. All information will be confidential. If you are interested in providing specific information on tactics used by your company that enforces sound ethics or vice versa, please contact me.

To whom I replied without any confidentiality:
Whoever you are, all you have to do is to go to our blog and you can read all kinds of articles on assessment:
I have written and talked about the subject in front of lawyers and bar associations and in front of everyone types of audience. There is nothing secret about it – policyholders need to choose really good assessors who understand insurance, construction, who will work hard to learn all the facts, be honest so that they do not give rise to pressure from the policyholder or the policyholder's contractor and also from the outside interests of other cases with the insurance company.
Should you be able to write a better article with more insight than me and learn more than I have for 35 years of this business, you cut!
Would you be so kind to tell your name, because when reporters throw themselves over the ones they are, it is not responsibility and for all I know you are a shill for the insurance company's lawyers.
My optimistic hope is that you are a real legal reporter who is interested in this very important issue, because Colorado is in a state of great legal flux on this issue.
In Colorado, a few insurance companies challenge every evaluation prize they think is "too much" and h ave declared a war against their own customers by sending an army of lawyers with a blank check to have those awards reversed. Every good and hardworking caretaker working for policyholders is challenged, sued and threatened with legal action. Many just refuse to participate. It's not financially worth it to them.
These insurers and their lawyers win because they have more money, and it is not possible to find good assessors to raise cases. I have told our company that we would only fight against insurers and lawyers in court and go to trial where we have a fair chance and forget about the judgment in Colorado.
That's the truth – and no one has to hide behind encrypted privacy to explain what's going on.
Here is a good post about the subject, although the above link is noted in the email message to the alleged report continuing on pages of articles:
