Central Texas Fire Insurance Claim Attorneys
Armi Easterby — Williams Kherkher
Armi Easterby is a commercial trial lawyer who manages the commercial & consumer litigation section at the Williams Kherkher Law Firm. Armi’s practice includes environmental cases (including cases relating to environmental contamination from MTBE, PCB, and lead), and other property damage cases throughout the United States.
Williams Kherkher was founded in 1983 and continues to fight hard to ensure that every client’s right to a fair trial is preserved. Armi graduated cum laude from the University of Houston Law Center in 1996, and was also an Associate Editor on the Houston Law Review. Armi also served a director on the Houston Law Review’s Alumni Board of Directors for several years, and is a member of the American Association for Justice and the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.
Armi has spent the last year representing hundreds of businesses affected by the BP Gulf Oil Spill. These claims are primarily for business interruption losses, and require extensive knowledge and experience in calculating growth trends, profitability, and other areas of damages. They have also involved direct negotiations between Armi and Ken Feinberg, the director of the Gulf Coast Claims Facility (the claims processing center for BP Oil Spill Claims). Armi’s experience with the BP claims has reaffirmed his view that in order for victims of a large disaster to receive prompt and proper payment they need their own team of attorneys and experts to level the playing field. If your company suffered business interruption losses due to the central Texas wildfires, please contact Armi to receive a free consultation.
