Nossaman Adds Yelitza Dunham to Insurance Recovery & Counseling Practice in San Francisco
San Francisco, CA — We are proud to announce that Yelitza Dunham has joined our Insurance Recovery & Counseling Group as a partner in the San Francisco office.
Yelitza’s practice focuses on formulating creative strategies for securing defense and indemnity costs after insurers deny coverage or otherwise minimize their obligation to pay. Her winning record includes reversing insurer denials for clients under a variety of policies, including commercial general liability (CGL), directors and officers (D&O), errors and omissions (E&O) and employment practices liability (EPL). She most recently served as a Litigation Partner at Winston & Strawn and prior to that served as an Associate at Nossaman from 2001-2007.
"Yelitza’s extensive experience and proven track record will allow her to add immense value for our client base," said George Joseph, the Firm’s Managing Partner. "We are very pleased she is coming on board."
Nossaman’s Insurance Recovery & Counseling Group has decades of experience representing policyholders in all aspects of insurance law and has a strong reputation and track record for successfully litigating high profile, landmark insurance cases at the trial and appellate courts. We have recovered more than $2 billion in policy benefits for clients, which include public and private entities across a broad spectrum of industries and coverage areas.
Jim Vorhis, Co-Chair of Nossaman’s Insurance Recovery & Counseling Group in the San Francisco office said he is "excited Yeltiza is returning to the Firm. Her skillset will enable us to expand our offerings to clients."
Discussing what led her to return, Yelitza said, "Nossaman’s deep roots in California, well-regarded insurance practice, impressive roster of attorneys, and the great experience I had previously at the Firm make it a great fit for me. I look forward helping our clients meet their insurance recovery needs."
Yelitza is admitted to practice in California. She holds a J.D. from University of California, Berkeley and a B.A., cum laude, from Harvard University.
