“I had a tremendous amount of damage from ice dams in the winter of 2011. Although I knew that some of it would be covered be insurance, I had no idea of what to claim. A friend of mine told me about Steve Gold. He said that his nephew received an initial offer from the insurance company of $5,000.00. After Steve became involved, the amount went to over $40,000.00. Before I called my insurer, I called Steve.
He came over, assessed the potential pay out and immediately got the clean up crew involved. My ultimate payout was over $90,000.00 which I would never received without Steve’s input. He has the expertise necessary to assess all aspects of the damage, including the engineering background needed to evaluate those elements not apparent to a lay person.
Steve is professional, tenacious, and knowledgeable. I have recommended him to several other people and would use him again in a New York Minute if disaster befalls me again.”
“I had a fire loss on the second floor of my three family home. My insurance company offered me 200,000. I hired DVG to assist me on my claim and within
two months my settlement was over 350,000.00 for the building portion alone.
They also helped me with all my personal belongings and assisted me in finding a
new house to stay in. I would highly recommend Steve and Brian’s services to
neighbors, friends and family.”

“I was managing my mom’s house after she died, when the pipes unexpectedly froze in the home. The property and all its contents were significantly damaged. We live out of state and had no idea how we were going to submit the claim to insurance. The task was daunting! I had never dealt with insurance before and there was so much damage I didn’t know where to begin. We found Steven Gold through a friend. Steven’s company took care of everything and dealt with insurance directly. They made a very painful and difficult process easy. The first offer directly to us was just a fraction compared to what Steve’s company settled the claim for. The claim was processed smoothly and timely. I highly recommend Steven’s services to anyone who is going through the unfortunate experience of property damage and the need to file a claim through insurance.”

“In 2011 I had water damage in my basement. My insurance company (out of state) was quick to try and deny my claim without even sending an adjuster out to assess the damage.
With Steven Gold’s knowledge and persistence an adjuster was sent out to my home, my claim was settled in full and I was finally able to do the necessary work that needed to be done. I would highly recommend Steven. I was very lucky to have him in my corner!”

“Recently, I engaged the services of DVG Public Adjustment and would like to take this opportunity to relate my personal experience. Throughout my initial meeting and beyond, with Steve was patient, thorough and knowledgeable. My wife and I are confident that it is through their diligence and knowledge of their business that we were able to secure adequate funds from the our homeowners insurance company to cover the renovations that were required to restore our home to the great condition it was in prior to the flooding from our upstairs bathroom. Steve was always on top of every detail including ensuring that funds were remitted to cover our 8-week stay at the local Residence Inn while our property was being renovated. The effort, energy and commitment that he provided to us in our time of need fall in the above and beyond category. I have consistently found the staff of DVG Public Adjustment to be pleasant, sincere and honest in all of their dealings. Because of these fine qualities, I will not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone because I am confident that they will enjoy the same great experience my wife and I had.”
