“Our book of business is heavily weighted by Partially Self-Funded Businesses, so that made us a ‘special risk’ for Errors and Omissions insurance. Thanks to Les Callahan’s professional expertise, close attention to detail, persistence and willingness to never give up, Maggio & Associates is now covered for this special risk exposure.”
“With all of the communication options we have today — word of mouth is still, by far, the most powerful. With Les Callahan being personally referred to us by another colleague we finally received uncommon and skilled attention that we need in the complex and ever changing Errors and Omissions marketplace. It is reassuring to know that one of the most crucial components of our own risk management needs is now handled by Callahan Risk.”
