Bryan A. Small devotes his practice to representing policyholders engaged in coverage disputes against their insurance carriers. His clients benefit from his expansive knowledge of all aspects of insurance coverage law. Prior to his tenure as insurance coverage counsel, he worked in insurance defense, representing carriers in claims involving life, health, and disability insurance policies. Bryan leverages this experience in his strategic approach to insurance recovery and can anticipate the positions carriers may take in denying coverage owed to insureds. Bryan has successfully resolved insurance coverage disputes throughout the claims process and in litigation, particularly with respect to coverage issues arising out of commercial general liability, employers’ liability, and first-party property claims.

Bryan’s interest in insurance was first piqued during his work as an Insurance Lines Analyst. After several years in this position, he then attended law school at Rutgers School of Law – Newark, where he served as Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Women's Rights Law Reporter. Before entering private practice, Bryan worked as a Law Fellow in the Office of Senior Vice President and General Counsel for Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

Bryan is a resident of SDV’s Northeast office in New Jersey.
