Steven D. Frattare established Cornerstone Claim Service in 2000 following 20 years experience as a multi-line insurance adjuster. He began his insurance career in 1979 when he performed risk inspections and interviewed prospective policyholders. In 1980, he was chosen by Hartford Insurance Company as Claim Representative Trainee and received extensive claim handling instruction.
Mr. Frattare’s special interest in the handling of General Liability claims took him into the independent adjusting field when, in 1985, he joined Thomas J. Rivers Adjusters. Though he concentrated on casualty claims, he also remained a multi-line adjuster, in order to maintain his broad range of interest in claims work. As Independent Adjuster, he represented many insurance companies and self-insureds, to include a real estate organization with which, in 1999, he accepted the position of Claims Manager.
Mr. Frattare passed the New York State examination for General Adjuster and has held a General Adjuster’s license since 1985. Cornerstone Claim Service met the standards necessary for inclusion in the Best’s Directory of recommended Insurance Attorneys and Adjusters and has been listed in that publication since 2001. The Associate In Claims professional designation from The Institutes was earned in 2011.
