Palker Law Firm Secures Record-Breaking Judgment For Valley Client

Palker Law Firm Secures Record-Breaking Judgment For Valley Client

(Edinburg, TX, 2/14/23) Palker Law Firm, a leading first-party insurance claims law firm, is proud to announce that they have secured a $927,680 judgment for their client, a local Rio Grande Valley resident living in Alton, Texas, who had their storm damage claim denied by their insurance company, Meridian Insurance. This is the largest judgment of its kind in the history of the Rio Grande Valley.

The case, argued in front of US District Judge Micaela Alvarez, centered around a homeowners insurance claim stemming from property damages sustained from Hurricane Hanna in July 2020 that was wrongfully denied by Meridian Insurance. Palker Law Firm stepped in to represent the policyholder and, after a hotly contested trial, was able to secure the record-breaking judgment to fully compensate their client to fix their home as well as secure treble damages after the court found that Meridian Insurance knowingly engaged in unfair and deceptive trade practices among other damages and fees.

“This case is a prime example of why policyholders need experienced litigators on their side,” said Jason Palker, principal attorney and owner of Palker Law Firm. “Insurance companies are notorious for denying, delaying, and underpaying legitimate claims. Our firm is dedicated to leveling the playing field and giving our clients their absolute best day in court, as we proved today.”

Palker Law Firm has a long history of successfully fighting against large insurance companies and corporations on behalf of policyholders. With decades of legal experience and a commitment to justice, the firm has recovered tens of millions of dollars for home and business owners across Texas and Florida.

“If you’re tired of being bullied by these billion-dollar insurance companies, it’s time to take a stand and partner with one of the fastest-growing law firms in the country,” added Palker.


Palker Law Firm is a storm damage insurance claims law firm located in Edinburg, Texas with offices in Houston and South Florida. With millions recovered for clients throughout the state of Texas and Florida, Palker Law Firm continues to stay committed to not only the clients we represent but to making lasting, positive impacts for our community.
