Using your information and research, we were able to get the company to reverse their position in favor of our client. This is such a great story of the value of being a Big I NY Member which gives the retail independent agent the opportunity to prove their value when needed the most.

Brendan Higgins, Thousand Islands Agency

As always Tim, your assistance is invaluable. Of all the benefits we derive from our membership, your expertise is by far the most helpful. Thank you for the excellent input!

I use Big I NY almost exclusively for stand-alone umbrella and I also have my E&O with you which contains some added enhancements for Big I members. I also use the Virtual University frequently to research issues, and when I send questions to Tim Dodge he always finds the answers for me.
