Background

Texas Policyholder Advocates Executive Director July 2015 to Present Scott Friedson is a Texas licensed public adjuster and consumer advocate for residential and commercial property insurance consumers (policyholders). He beat incredible odds to successfully drive HB 1841 and pass a new law which abolished sales tax previously required by public adjusters to charge consumers on insurance claim services.

The bill received 100% support from both the Texas House and Senate and went into effect on October 1, 2015. Friedson also rigorously opposed anti-consumer friendly SB 1628 testifying against this dangerous proposed by insurance carriers and offered solutions to increase policyholder protection during the 84th legislative session.

SB 1628 bill ultimately failed but the sinister nature of the bill to attack chapters 541 and 542 of the Texas Insurance Code while providing immunity and hollowed out damages for unfair and deceptive trade practices as well as fair and prompt indemnification for Texas Policyholders cannot be ignored.
