Smoking Cigars

A Charlotte, NC, lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against fire among other things. Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars and without yet having made even his first premium payment on the policy, The lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost “in a series of small fires.”

The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason: that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.

The lawyer sued….and won!

In delivering the ruling the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The Judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be unacceptable fire, and was obligated to pay the claim.

Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000.00 to the lawyer for his loss of the rare cigars lost in the “fires.” NOW FOR THE BEST PART…

After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!!! With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000.00 fine.

This is a true story and was the 1st place winner in the recent Criminal Lawyers Award Contest.

H K. from Duarte says:

He took the initiative to make sure everything worked properly and even helped move a toilet down to the garage. He also took the time and effort to answer all questions – great customer service! I had a positive experience thanks to these guys.


Emily W. from Temple City says:

The first person couldn’t fix it they run out a manager and they couldn’t fix it and their solution was that for $5800 they could tear up our pattio and access the sewer line. We said “no thank you” and called Western Router based on yelp reviews. We called at 4:30 in the afternoon and two guys were here by 5:30 and fixed the problem in less than 30 minutes. They were kind, courteous and efficient. I highly recommend this company.
