“Before we met Strategic Insurance Solutions, Inc., we simply gave our personal and business insurance to an old college classmate who had approached us. Over the years, our business has grown and our needs have changed significantly resulting in a need for expanded services and a fresh look at our insurance which is when we approached Jim Michals.
We were so impressed with the analysis and the attention that Strategic Insurance Solutions,Inc. provided us, we totally switched our insurance programs. Since that time, Strategic Insurance Solutions, Inc. has saved us significant money, but most importantly provided our firm with a much more comprehensive program that addresses the business needs of our firm and also the personal requirements of my family.
Their service has been exemplary and their personal follow up and attention to detail has made them an indispensable part of our business and personal lives.” Jack Derby, President, Derby Management
