Fire Litigation

Fire cases should always be assigned to attorneys who are thoroughly familiar with the subject matter, who understand the special terminology used in the field of fire science, and who are willing to immerse themselves in the origin and cause investigation process.  In short, the best lawyers to handle fire cases are those who are specialists in the field.

Mike Carmoney has endeavored to be that kind of specialist, by enrolling in college-level fire science course work, by independently studying NFPA 921 and other industry-recognized source material, by passing the examination to become a Certified Fire & Explosion Investigator (CFEI), and by personally participating first-hand at numerous fire scene investigations.

Fire litigation has always been a key practice area at the Carmoney Law Firm.  We are a well-established member of the very small community of legal professionals who handle most of the complex fire cases in Iowa.  We are equipped to handle every legal aspect of a fire case, from the first report of the loss through jury verdict.

Mike is a member of the National Association of Fire Investigators (NAFI) and the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI).  He has been a guest lecturer for college fire science classes, and is a frequent speaker on the subject of fire litigation to groups of attorneys and insurance personnel.
