Flamen Stuart M. Flamen
Mr. Flamen first worked for several years in-house for one of the largest United States-based international insurance carriers. He was responsible for defending a wide variety of cases, including Labor Law, premises liability, automobile accident, negligent security, subrogation, false imprisonment and assault matters. He then worked for the staff counsel office of another major carrier, where he handled all aspects of a large insurance defense caseload, from inception to trial.

In 2002, he joined McDonnell Adels & Klestzick, PLLC where he handles all aspects of insurance coverage matters, with a specialty in insurance fraud cases. He has conducted trials and framed issue hearings involving, among other issues, staged automobile losses, identity theft, and no-fault provider fraud. He has also handled affirmative litigation on behalf of insurance carriers seeking declarations that health care providers are fraudulently incorporated and reimbursement of payments previously paid to those providers.
