Attorney Steven Bush was in the trenches serving as a certified indoor environmentalist in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. As a first-hand witness to the destruction and devastation, Bush was especially enraged at how the policyholders were either ignored or stalled by their insurance companies.
“I saw people just devastated with no help,” he says. “They have no voice with the insurance companies. I’ve never forgotten that. I was on ground zero and talked with these people and saw how their lives were in many ways as destroyed as their properties.”
So moved by these scenes that repeated over and over, Bush was inspired to step up and find a way to help. It was this impetus that led him to law school.
“The insurance companies were either delaying or denying them,” he adds, “and I couldn’t forget or ignore what I’d experienced. I share these stories every day with the attorneys in my office. I don’t want any of us to forget who we’re fighting for and how desperate their situations are.”
